    could you just cut the hammock with the triangle already added?

    Then sew the open end of the triangle to the body and then hem the side?

    I think it could work. I wanted to do it so I that I had the extra strength in that area created by the hems.

    great, thanks, I've got it now.

    1. tail of UCR bury cord gets a tiny fixed eye splice.
    2. 1" of silicon tubing, ends folded back, slipped over long cord that passes through bury cord
    3. tiny fixed eye from (1) above has zip tie passed through it, round the silicon tubing, and tightened up. This slips when you slide it along the cord, but holds tension on the UCR.

    I like this and will give it a try soon.

    The way I showed here is the simpler way to make them. My older hammock had the tail of the UCR pass through the silicone tube as well before it was bent back and spliced to the zip tie. That method creates a little more traction, but is also harder to make.

    weight

    Very nice. I like the UL aspect of your system. Do you have the weight of your hammock? I didn't catch it in the video if you stated it. Thanks for the info.
