    spreader ring inside ge hammock

    Hey guys, a long while back, there was a post about using a ring inside a gathered end hammock, one on each end, to spread the ends out a bit. I thought it was interesting, but didnt book mark it, and now cant find the post. Does anyone remember that post?

    I know of several individuals using a spreader on the head end of a gathered end hammock, but I must have missed the thread you're speaking of. I'll have to look for that, I'm very curious.

    There was a mention of using a big carabiner in the mini spreader bar thread... Maybe that's what your thinking about...

    This was something different-a big ring, maybe 5 or 6 in across, inside the hammock at the foot and head ends---it was a pretty origional idea, even by hammock forums standards!

    I remember the thread you're talking about. I'll see if I can find it when I get home tonight. If it hasn't been linked by then.

    Afraid I'm gonna have to give up the search. Tried every serach term I could think of, went back page by page in the DIY section, even tried searching through the gallery as I remember a picture from the thread and nothing.

    Now I'm tired and think I'm going to do something about that pretty soon.

    So I don't this I found it, but I did find this thread where Demosticks mentions putting a ring through the end channel.

    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=35910

    Maybe this will help someone find the right thread. I'm gonna keep looking, but that's what I found so far.
