    Love the 2 Colors

    Very nice. I love the two colors you got going there. Great idea.

    I got mine to work using 1/8 but went with a 16 inch bury. It held without a problem. I'm guessing it might have worked with a 12 inch bury as well. I still have one to make for the other side and might try that. The nice thing: For the 1st time in over a week, I didn't land on my backside testing out the toggle method, or UCR.

    A safety pin works.

    Nice job man, I have two ucr's on my home made bridge hammock foot end ,and a whoopie on the head. What i like about this set up is,you can lengthen one side making it sag lower than the back side. This takes alot of the leg bite away in chair mode ,giving you a better back support at the same time,and is a better lay in fetal position.Keep up the good posts.

    I have the same set up. Grey woopie on the head green Ucr on the foot. Reversed woopie for the Srl. Safety pins hold the Srl and the ucr.

    Tutorial: How To Make an UCR

    Thanks for the tutorial. I made some UCR's with 7/64 Amsteel and a 10" bury. Held my 275 hiney up just fine. I did do something different instead of a Prusik. I just made a stopper knot in that tail piece, then tied a short piece of shock cord around it and the main line to keep it snug. I think it will work great. Just another variation someone might like. Thanks again.

    Let me get a few shots when I get home tonight. I just did that change last night and then had to drop it to chase kids.

    I love the SC idea. An added gram but should make the sleeper feel much safer. I still have a variation of the Prusik and the Klemheist Knot.

    Glad to see you are using a UCR at Yates place this weekend. I want too see one in action before trying them out.
