    The Jarbidge comes with one carabiner at each end. I just added one carabiner to each end and attach them to the am steel at each corner. The first 2 pics are with the hammock flipped bottom-up. The third pic is right side up. Each corner is the same. Even though it doesn't seem to need it ( can't really test yet since this summer heat never ends) I like the idea of a shock cord going across the ridge line (in the case of the Ridgerunner, the bug net).

    Edit: decided to quick rig a center cord across the bug net. I don't know if it's really needed but it does hold the quilt in snugly.

    Looks great. I'll have to give this a shot! Thanks :-)

    I do the same thing with my Jarbridge and S-Biners on my BMBH-UL and it works great.

    What a coincidence... I was out last weekend and made this short video of the Jarbidge on my bmbh ul. Sorry but the audio is pretty bad

    Doesn't get any easier than that.
    I went with carabiners at the corners because I felt that my shock cords were a little short but I might give that a try - so easy...
    A bridge hammock sure does eliminate most of the fit problems with an UQ.

    The Jarbidge was originally designed with bridge hammocks in mind but it worked so well on so many hammocks that we offer it as an option for just about every hammock made.

    The Jarbidge is such a good fit on the Ridgerunner that I won't be ordering the Ridge Creek I was drooling over - Sorry

    I have not tried my JB on a bridge, but I think I will as soon as it cools off!
    Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.

    That is the one time it can correctly be called a JarBRIDGE!
