    UQ suspension mod & Dutch quilt hooks

    Well I ordered 6 quilt hooks with the intention of just putting 1 on each corner of the quilt and 1 on each end of the quilt suspension to clip them together.....Then I watched SGT.Rock's video how he did away with most of the suspension .I noticed he used 3 hooks on each side and I only used 2 on each side on the ends I did not put 1 in the middle of the quilt and it looks like it will work but I have no way of testing until Saturday on an overnighter.. SGT.Rock if you read this or anyone else that has done this should I just put one in the middle to be safe or will it work like I have it? Any advise would be great..

    I think you should be OK with just the four.

    Thanks SGT. I find it to be my most comfortable setup not the lightest though lol..23oz Hammock,Bugnet ,quilt hooks,knotty mod all rigging & peak bag.. Thinking about a WWM to drop quite a bit of weight but figured I would experiment with this one first...

    Well I got to try my hammock out today worked out great! I used a wooded vacant lot by my apartment complex I was there about 20 min laying in the hammock when I heard a car stop. I looked and it was the POLICE they said that someone had called the police saying someone was setting up a campsite..lol all went well and the officer said can I see your setup so I walked him back to it and he said wow thats really cool and asked where he could get one so I pointed him to HF to check it out..Then he said I had to pack it up then he told me a spot to use when I wanted to test my gear I thought that was pretty cool of him...We may have another convert...
