    Sewn channel ridgeline help

    I am new to ridgelines and need some help. I am going to add a ridgeline to my Eno DN. I have whoopie slings attached through the sawn channel and want to add a ridge line to my system. I am going to use 7/64 amsteel in whoopie sling fashion. So my question to you all is how would go about attaching this to my system correctlly?

    Thanks for all the help

    Well, one one end: un-larkshead your whoopie suspension and feed the fixed eye of the suspension whoopie through the fixed eye of the the ridgeine whoopie. Then re-larkshead the suspension whoopie as it was originally. Thats one end attached.

    On the other end, repeat this manuever with the adjustable loop of the ridgeline whoopie. The suspension whoopie will bite on your adjustable loop but it should still pass through when you make adjustments.

    Wish I could take pics, that would be easier for you.

    This is how I have it. Pull the adjustable end back out of the fixed eye, just put either end of your whoopiesling through the loop on your hammock ridgeline and put your adjustable end back through the fixed eye to redo your larkshead. Same thing on the other end. You just have to think about what end you would like to have the adjustable end of your hammock ridgline.

    Here's another option. It's how I install them when modding the GTUL. Prevents them always wanting to slide up the whoopies.
