    Darn it gmcttr, emoticons let us down again...

    As is in someone or other's sig line:

    "If any of my comments can be interpreted in more than one way, I meant the good one."

    or something to that effect...

    I don't think this is the case since I have a pretty good understanding of the concepts of the different forces applied to the varying separate axis involved.
    That said, maybe I wasn't clear with my typing. I often tend to step on my toes or fingers in this case

    The TurtleDog stand

    I'm going to be building mine tomorrow... Have a question though:
    I'm planning to use this with my ENO DN with the "stock" rope suspension/biners. What length ridge pole have others used with this setup to get a good hang angle?
    I'm going to try to scour the thread for an answer, but I thought I'd ask...
    Thanks!

    TurtleDog Stand

    Built ~Tweaked~Transported~Tested~APPROVED…

    TurtleDogFrame:
    2” x 2” x 7’ non angled legs attached to a Heavy Duty 6” T-Hinge.
    Legs are tethered 24” up from bottom end to maintain a 48” spread.
    ľ” eye bolts on the bottom hinge hole of the single leg. (used for tie down if needed).
    3 piece Ridgepole:
    2 - 10’6” chain link top rails, one cut to 6’, the other 7’.
    Each of the tapered end sections are trimmed to 41” with 3/8” eye bolts set in 2” w/vinyl tubing to protect the continuous loop.
    This allows the choice of a 12’ or 13’ ridgeline.
    Ridgepole Hang:
    Hinge – shackle – S-hook, 9” length of 3/16”chain – S-hook to eye bolt on ridgepole.
    This allows adjustment for a correct hang angle and a desired distance from bottom of hammock to the ground
    Hammock Hang:
    6” amsteel continuous loop, integrated in webbing/buckle suspension slipped over the ridgepole on the outside of the vinyl protected eye bolts.

    The simplest with my computer handicap is to:
    Click- Post Reply
    Click- Attachments ( paperclip)
    this opens a box allowing up to 10 photo downloads from your computer. See if that will work for you.

    Very nice! I really like the idea of the eyebolt in the hinge.

    Clever!
