    need help w UQ and SW 1.9

    I haver a diy uq from fronkey and it works great on my wbbb. Only a little nudge here n there if it slips. My problem is when I use it with my switchback 1.9 dl it always seems to slide to one side or another and the coverage seems less?? I just am having a hard time dialing it in and getting it stationary. Any and all help would be appreciated. Pics tomorrow I hope.
    Thanks tim

    I have a SB light hiker and had a similar experience with my 3/4 UQ. What I found helped was using the side tie outs to help keep it in place. What I do is feed the side shock cord under the UQ shock cord before securing it to the ground. Alternately I have use mini binner to connect the side shock cord and the UQ shock cord. Have you looked into Dutchware quilt hooks?

    am thinking of dutch quilt hooks, I did find that by using all four side tie outs i am able to loosen the end shockcords of the quilt and it seals up well, and doesnt slide side to side as much. with that said yea i am looking at the dutch quilt hooks and possibly using the tie outs as you suggested but my diy uq seems a little long for that..
