    I have nothing to say pro or anti patent. I will say I'm a D.I.Y.'er and no matter what it is your selling, I'll probably D.I.Y. it cheaper at home for personal use, not production.

    Having said that I'd suggest offering plans in PDF file for $5 or $10. Copyright might be easier than a patent? You could sell thousands of plans even though only a few might actually get built.

    I am going to share an example and I think you could contact either one of these guy's with a question about it. They are great folks and helpful.

    Not hammock related but plans in PDF examples.

    While all this discussion about patents is interesting, I find the original post to be unintentionally funny. Seriously, a patent for an improved pulk sled? Don't want people ripping off your improved pulk sled idea for thousands or millions of dollars? The pulk sled business can be highly profitable, but it is a cutthroat and vicious business and you'll need a patent to survive!

    Now let me go work on my patent for an improved bellybutton lint remover (it involves gasoline and flame).

    I have probably had only one good idea in my life.Company management paid a patent attorney to tell us that it was too simple and not unique.So much for that but it was quite effective anyway.

    I work for a medium sized company and I have one patent for something I "invented" working there. The company has paid a great deal of money to be able to hang a plaque on the wall, but I am almost certain they'd never go to the even greater expense to defend it if ever infringed upon. Especially so due to the fact that any infringers would likely come from the far East.
