My method has more to do with how I wrap up the hammock than anything else. Everything is in the snake skins so I take down the foot end first bundling the suspension cord. As everything gets folded together the trailing cord is for the head and that wraps around everything going in the sack. When it comes out of the sack the loose end is the head end. Start there and yada, yada, yada.
(I'll eventually paint, tape or tie something there but I'm low tech, lazy and cheap. Just being honest).
