    The ridgeline design is not one intended for casual adjustment.

    It is relatively easy to rig something to shorten it if you want, in an adjustable way. MacEntrye just posted something on that.

    To lengthen it in an adjustable way, I'm guessing that all you really need to do is Mac's trick, but cut the ridgeline inside of the nipper loop, and make the nipper cord longer. Would have the irritating feature of leaving a couple of cut ridgeline strands dangling down though. You could also follow any one of a number of recommendations on HF for a removable/adjustable ridgeline on a Hennessey (which has a similar ridgeline construction).

    so the white ropes on the sides go to a ground stake, one per side of hammock. put the looped end over the stake, the cordlock will jam into the ring and you can tighten it there.

    you need 2 carabiners, clip one into the loop in the end of the 1" webbing (repeat other side). now clip around the tree, adjust webbing(via the ringbuckles) so it's at a 30 deg angle and hammock is at appropriate entering height, then tie a backup knot behind the rings (slipped half hitch). this is a ringbuckle suspension, so you can find more info and pics here on hf by searching "ringbuckles"

    That should be the next addition to your hammock, Brandon - some instructions with pictures. Make some photocopies of the different suspensions and wing tie-outs from all the gallery pictures, gin up a cheap color brochure, and stick it in with the hammock.

    when the new website goes up there will possibly be some video directions, i should ammend the included ones though.
