    How to keep a TQ in place

    Okey Dokey. My pre-teen has issues with his top quilt sliding out of his WB Traveler. He's an active sleeper. What is a good way to keep his TQ in place?

    Thanks my hangin' homies!

    Is your son kicking out of the footbox or is he "walking" the TQ off the top of himself while he sleeps. I think that Randy, not quite sure, took some fabric and sewed a triangle section of fabric in one of his DIY hammocks to stop this problem. If you don't like the fabric idea you could always use a no-see-um material instead. That way the netting will give before the hammock fabric does if he is having really wild kicking fits.

    I thought you were going to make a fabric triangle like bigbamaguy outlined. What happened to that idea?

    I make slightly deeper footbox and then use a couple of side or center release buckles to help keep things tucked. If they are positioned correctly along the side of the quilt they are pretty easy to engage/disengage.

    Duct tape will more than likely do the trick too...

    This thread discusses adding a footbox to a netless hammock. It definitely helps me keep the TQ from falling over the edge. It does not affect the lay of the hammock.

    Well, I guess there is always a Pea Pod type approach. That is the only approach I have found where I don't have to "work" to keep things tucked in and with no draft when I move. But I guess you have to find a way to make the TQ you already have stay in place. Other than a pod and ideas already given, I don't know. I especially don't know if it is a case of flopping around with out really waking up. I'm not sure how you would stay covered with a TQ without using some caution when you move.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
