    Do you have to sew the loops in or can you just do burn holes and cord loks(one on each end)?

    I just folded the fabric over twice to form a channel, sewed, and added cord locks.

    Sweet. I'm going to get a Crinkle Taffeta hammock blank and do this. Since all edges are sewn I just wanted to make holes and add cord loks. Sweet Ill test it with out first though of course.

    *That* will have to wait until the weather cools. Yes, I like the mod. It made my Traveler much more comfortable.

    I know you put it in a 2FT section of the hammock, but how much shock cord are you using? I was guessing it was 2FT but I wanted to make sure before I approached doing this.

    I used 2 ft of shock cord with a cord lock on one end. I also found that it needed surprisingly little tension to be effective.

    Using 2' is fine if you want to release tension at times, so the hammock sides hang natural but for it to act as a footbox the bungee needs to be shorter than the channel its in so there's tension. I'd start with 2' and then trim off excess as you see fit. It's easier to cut than to add.
