    In case you haven't figured this out yet, Imagine tying a line to the edge of the UQ(the "side") and throwing it over the ridgeline, tying it off on the other edge. This would pull the UQ up. I will try this this weekend.

    Found a solution!

    I HAVE FOUND A SOLUTION!

    Ok, so before I just used the line locs on each corner(secondary suspension). These would then slip through resulting in gaps. After talking with Adam for some time, I tried it all then realized tightening the primary suspension would lift the incubator up. Sure nuff, tightened her up and I sat down and it was nice and snug. I then adjust the line locs at the foot end(have to tie off cuz they slip) and now I am good to go. Can't use tie outs, less comfortable and the cold seeps in instantaneously. Will have to dial that in later but I slept like a baby last night. Thanks Adam for the helpful suggestions!

    It would be nice to have some kind of video on youtube to see the best way to use the suspensions... I've tried a couples settings that suit my needs but I would see someone else settings his or her suspensions.
