    How to use an UQP?

    Do I just hook the shockcord to the hammock suspension and snug the cordlocs until the UQP snugs up to the hammock?

    Thanks!

    I have the ZQ UQP. I found it a bit long for my hammock so I tied a knot in the shock cord ends, to make it about the right size.Then I wrapped them around the ends of my hammock. Then I used the cord locks in the middle to make the final adjustments.

    I'm sure there are other ways to do it, but this works for me.

    Depends on the length of the hammock. For my 11 footers I tie the shock cord around the whipping at each end of the hammock. For shorter hammock, I tie the cord to the suspension.

    Basically snug up the cord lock until it comes up to the hammock. My UQP is built large so I sometimes turn it into a sock by clipping together the edges.

    I was trying it on my Dangerbird 60 this last weekend.

    Any pics? I'm having a hard time visualizing it.

    The extra length of the 2Q/ZQ UQP is sweet when you need to accomodate a really thick think 0 rated underquilt. I've already used the UDP on a regular DangerBird--its a perfect match.

    Oh, now I went back and read your earlier post and I see you got it built custom in a large size.... Very cool.

    Would a UQP be able to serve as the suspension for an underquilt? In other words, would I be able to lay an open sleeping bag or poncho liner inside and have it stay in the right place?
