    quilt hooks on the new HG suspension

    Can the dutch quilt hooks still be used with the new hammock gear suspension? I was just looking at how it would work with both of the lines coming out.

    I don't see why not. You just put however many quilt hooks you want on each end and side of the hammock and then decide if you want to be able to hook both suspensions to quilt hooks or just one. Having quilt hooks you wont be able to fit more then one piece of shock cord in a quilt hook. So if you want to hook both suspensions to quilt hooks then you would need a total of 8 of them 2 on each side of the head and foot end. IMHO you would only need to hook the looped suspension to quilt hooks and not the end ones. Hope this makes sense sorry if I rambled.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    well I do have enough hooks. I think I may just hook both lines to individual hooks. guess I'll have to experiment when I get out there.

    Personally I would try just the channel lines first.
