    Nice, and thanks. I have already made most of it, but just got the extra material for the ridge cap.

    Great job in the illustration Pipps! Very easy to visualize.
    .... the Aardvark (earth pig)... a rather unremarkable creature whose sole claim to fame is that it is the first animal listed in the dictionary.

    Great visual explanations, Pipps. Used mine last season and loved it.

    Pips,
    I asked you a 1,000 questions in the original TED thread.
    So here is one more (with sub parts)
    Do you use a ridgeline on your hammock?
    If so, where do the TED shock cords align with it; above, below, even?

    I have a reason for asking, but I will bore you with that another time.
    Thanks.

    BTW great innovation (and props to Hangnout too) and great instructions.

    Thanks, wwk10! Yes I use a ridge line on my hammock. I use the carabiners to connect the center of the TED's shock cords to the hammock's ridge line. That helps to keep the sides of the TED tucked up under the ridge cap.

    As a temporary ridge cap, I used white mosquito netting from Joanns, so I could use the TED. I just received my noseeum material and will make a new ridge, so it will match.

    With the cap I did make, the sides hang down about 15". This gave me plenty of coverage and didn't need the shock cord on the cap. My side shock cord is about even with my hammock ridge line. I am still thinking about this, before making the new ridge cap.

    On the third illustration, the black line is just the folded line and the red is where you sew after the fold, right?

    Basically you put your hammock inside this bug net as if you are putting something in a bag?
