    Question Claytor bug mesh strings

    Hello everyone, i'm quite a newbie with my claytors (JH and EXp), I have learned many things simply by using it, however I still have many questions. What is the best way to suspend the bug mesh out of your face, I suppose some individ. could attatche it to their ridgline but what about tieing it to the respective trees?? what knot or system works best for this? Thanks

    Re: Claytor bug mesh strings

    I bought aluminum arrows and cut the shaft to length, put rubber caps on the ends, put them in the bug net end sleeve and use the supplied shock cord to attach to my tarp ridgeline. Keeps the net spread wide and out of the way. uploadfromtaptalk1367878930106.jpg

    OK, I have read in another thread, that the taut hitch knot is good for attaching the shock cord around the tree

    Aluminum arrow sounds great. For the last 2 years I break two twigs to the correct length. From there I run the lines up to the tarp tips. Works well however I am looking to setup a static Ridgeline myself very soon.

    I use a couple sticks I find on site to spread the netting. I tie the lune to a small twing at the right distance so it stretches the bungee a bit and then put the twig at the loop of my tarp end. Been doing it this way for years now. If the description doesnt help I can take a picture.
