    Bridge hammock question?

    Thinking about going the DIY route for a bridge hammock. I have found a supplier for some aluminum tent poles, connectors and tips. Where can one find some of the metal stops to sew to some webbing at the corners similar to the Warbonnet Ridge Runner?

    I don't believe any commercial pieces exist, but people have made some (I think) out of aluminum and drilled holes. Also, you can just larks head the Amsteel to the webbing loop and then stick the pole tip in the larks head... That's what grizz recommended in one of his vids. I've used that way and it works well.

    Yep...get out your milling machine or water jet if you want WB style aluminum fittings.

    Here's some info on how others have done it...

    In case you haven't already found these poles and end caps, scroll down to the .625" and .742" poles.
