    Triangle Thingies - With Phoenix UQ

    I am just playing with making some triangle thingies as I like the therory on the UQ attachment with them.

    What I'm curious about is actually attaching the UQ using them.

    I have a 3S Phoenix, do I just completely remove the suspension that runs through the side channels and fix an button toggle adjustable bungie to the single anchor points on each corner of the quilt and tie straight up from there ??

    I used cordlocks like toggles, and pass the suspension shock cord through the cordlock. Gives me adjustability and easy setup/takedown. I leave the triangle attached to my hammock.

    Thanks John, That's actually what I meant. (technical glitch I my part)

    Do I remove the stock UQ suspension completely though or leave it there + use the triangle thingies ??
