    TTTG Switchback DIY plans

    Anyone got so plans to make a DIY Switchback? I assume it's pretty easy. I would just like to see some pics of how the netting is attached. Thanks

    The best pics I've seen for the netting/zipper/gather interfaces is at the start of this thread: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=11811

    The netting is fixed and sewn under the fabric of the channel, so it's part of the gathered ends. It's also directly attached to the zippers along both sides. From my usage with my own DIY Switch-bird hybrid thingy, I'd say that the zipper-netting seam is pretty durable, but I would recommend double or even triple stitching it, perhaps with a zig for full measure. Grosgrain reinforcement might also be a good idea for a super durable bond.

    If other people have better pics of DIY SB netting I'd be interested in seeing them too!
