    Length of Shock cord for UQ users?

    Good morning. I am slapping together a Poncho Liner UQ (PLUQ) for a friend who uses an ENO Double Nest hammock. However, I do not know how long to make the shock cord for attaching the PLUQ to the hammock. I'm planning on running shock cord along both sides of the quilt so the quilt can slide back and forth and attaching to the hammock with small carabiners.

    Can anyone let me know how long to make the shock cord?

    I have used 17' of shock cord with the ends connected by a cord lock and it's worked very well. I drape the loops of shock cord over the suspension and tension based on sag, etc. Your mileage may vary
    Happy Trails to one and all.
    Enjoy the outdoors wisely and elevate your perspective.

    PS. How you doing in Clovis? I make it up there quite a bit as my in-laws are in the area.
