    hennessey and a jarbridge uq

    I have a HH and a new jarbridge UQ. This may be a dumb question, but what is the best way to attach the UQ to a HH. Is it as simple as clipping. Since the HH is an asym, do I have to do anything special. The UQ seems loose on the asym.

    If you want to spread it out a bit, find the best fore and aft position for the UQ and then sew a mitten hook *ring* to the edge of the UQ where it lines up with the side pull-outs for the HH. Then you can make a short shock cord extension with a mitten hook on each end. Then just clip the shock cord to the pull-out and the quilt. You can use a small 2-hole button for a reinforcement where the ring is sewn to the edge of the UQ. You could use a toggle on the pull-out side of the shock cord for total tweaking capability.

    You have some asym shape to deal with in any hammock where you sleep on the diagonal. The HH just has it built into the shape of the hammock.
