    DIY Doors For Mamajamba W/Panel Pulls Tarp

    I've been wanting to make doors for my Mamajamba tarp for a long time and finally sat down and made some out of scrap material - 1.1 Ripstop DWR 2nds from DIY Gear Supply.

    At first I wanted to make doors and just sew them on, then I mentally flipped a coin and instead made some Grizz Beaks (SOB - Son Of Beak). I hooked up my tarp spreaders and the doors work wonderfully well. It's really windy here today and with the doors, it's very still under the tarp.

    I used the pattern that Grizz provided here: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=11785

    The dimensions and top angle are spot on for this tarp. So now on to making another set for the other side.

    Ha! Caught that did you! Yes, I always have a helper or three to inspect everything. The doors are fat cat approved. Then again, they're easy to bribe.

    Thanks!

    Looks great! What caught my eye is the tarp spreaders/over the top pull-outs...could you tell us what you used, and/or how you did this? Thanks!

    All my cats help with design and planning. Set-up is where they shine - especially with the cords. Yes - it's a cat cut tarp - they insisted!
