    Ridgerunner Missing Bug Net Tie Downs?

    I got a WB Ridgerunner last year at the end of the season and haven't really had a chance to play with it yet. Now that spring is on the horizon I have been looking at it and I can't figure out how to tie the hidden bug net away as I only have two webbing straps on the same side of the netting and I fear I may actually be missing the second half of the webbing ties.

    So attached are pictures of the front and back of my ridge runner with netting "stowed", ready to be tied up. Am I missing something, how do I tie the bug net up?

    EDIT: I realize they may also supposed to be on the back of the webbing, so I included a pic of there too.

    Opps. Looks like WB left one side of the ties off. Here's a photo of mine.

    The bug net should stow into a little sack on the inside of the foot end. There should then be ribbon on the sack as well as the end of the hammock itself to tie together to hold it in the sack. The pics aren't very clear to me since the hammock isn't hanging. From what I'm thinking it looks like there may be ribbon missing on one end?

    I never tie mine. Roll it up and stuff, I roll and zip up when needed.
    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Mine had the inside ribbons missing. I contacted Brandon and he said he would sew the missing set in. I just have never returned it and actually haven't even missed them. When I'm not using the net and roll it up, it stays in the stuff sack just fine.
    Aim for the moon, if you miss, at least you will still be among the stars.

    I just find it a little unruly. Maybe I'll learn to like it or I can always add a second tie myself. Thanks for the help.

    Yep, it would only take a few minute to sew them on. If you don't have the correct ribbon/grosgrain, contact WB and have them send you a couple of pieces.

    Let WB know of the error. Brandon needs to be aware of what is slipping past QC.
