    3/4 IX underquilt rigging

    How do I use the underquilt with a gathered end hammock with a channel. Works great on my traveler, because of the "knob". Is there an easy way to rig the underquilt when the "knob" is not quite as pronounced?

    Thanks!

    When the gathered end has no knob, I just pull the two legs of shock cord up and tie them together with a bit of small stuff.

    You can also put a prussik on your hammock suspension, and use one of those tiny biners.

    I do this all the time with my end-gathered, channel-threaded hammocks. Like Mac said, using a mini carabiner works great. I clip the carabiner into the UQ suspension and clip it around the hammock line (Whoopie Sling). Couldn't be easier!
