    It comes with an adjustable ridgeline cord. You will want to try different lengths (that allow the net to sag in varying amounts) to see what works best for you.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Shock cord ridgeline, with cordlocks on each end to tighten or loosen it.

    ahhhh ....... ok ......
    I used the two clip things on the blackbird hammock to hold out the bug netting and forgot about that shock cord .....
    and without being able to see the setup videos because I'm on a painfully slow dialup, my first setup might be quite a bit different than most, though I do have lots of experience with my eno and swt. I'll find something that works .... and later I'll see just how it matches up against the videos ....

    the travel net is a universal-type net, so depensing on your hammock and susp, you might do it different ways. it should have come with shockcord and a couple cordlocks, sounds like i forgot the cordlocks on somebody's, so if you need them, just shoot me an email. you can use the small bit of cord to tie a prussik onto your suspension cord and then attach that to the rings in the end of the net. if you have webbing a prissik might not work (maybe it does) i was thinking a safety pin would be a good way to attach the cord to the webbing and then clip that to the rings. then you can rig up the shockcord rl if you want (can be done without) and adjust the tension with the cordlocks. you don't want the prissicks too tight though as it may make it tight around the head and foot area, looser is better, but this will cause the ridge to sag some, which is what the shockcord is for.
