    Just for an example of one way to do it, on a WBBB, the Structural Ridge Line has a loop on each end. The suspension line passes throught the eye of the loop, where it wraps aroung the gathered end. In this situation, both the suspension link and the SRL are 7/64 Amsteel. I suspect you could do the same with your Traveller.
    We are now ready to start our way down the Great Unknown.We are three quarters of a mile in the depth of the earth.We have an unknown distance yet to run, an unknow river yet to explore.What falls there are, we know not; what rocks beset the channel, we know not; what walls rise over the river, we know not. Ah, well! We may conjecture many things. The men talk as cheerfully as ever; jests are bandied about freely this morning; but to me the cheer is somber and the jests are ghastly. Powell 1869

    So I had the same question - and here is the thread http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=44445

    I'm guessing you have the ends whipped - so you need to open that back up and put about a 12-15 inch piece inside each end (that's where you attach the ridgeline)

    I used an adjustable ridgeline and used the knots illustrated - the taut-line hitch is the one that moves so you can adjust it - just attach the ends of the taut-line on both ends (the ridgeline) and make the bowlines come from those 12-15 inch have the bow-line hitch.

    Then all you have to do is put/make a knot on the end of the 12-15 inch rope that is outside of the hammock.

    Let me know if you have any questions!
