I have a roll of bungee, so that's not a problem if that's what I need. I have the mini-biners clipped right at the gathered end like the video on AHE. I will freely admit this is probably something I'm doing wrong as I have no experience with uq's.

    I'm new to hammocks, with my only previous experience being a bridge net hammock I used to sleep in, in college indoor, strung under my loft bed that got too hot in the summer, so experiencing cold butt is new to me.

    Can you explain the quilt hooks? I'm not sure how that would be used. I'm a squirmy sleeper generally speaking, so something that would hold this in place would be great for me.
    I had to extend the shock cords on my jarbidges too. They were just too short to get to my attachment points. I think if you made or purchased some of the AHE triangle suspension thingees that then your stock shock cord would be long enough... just a guess.

    I had to extend the shock cords on my Jarbidge about 8" on each end for my 11 1/2 foot hammock (with 80% ridgeline).
    Enjoying the simple things in life.
