    ENO DN bishop bag conversion (with pics)

    Here is my attempt at converting a standard ENO DN to use a bishop bag.

    This started with an ENO DN that had already had the buckle and strap removed.



    Very carefully, with utility knife and scissors, I cut the existing bag off.



    I was unaware that the inside of the bag already had a backing strap. This was a happy surprise.



    I had my wonderful wife sew around the edge to reenforce the strap to bag connection. Then used a punch from a 1/2" grommet set put a hole in the middle of the strap (no pic, sorry). A quick pass with a lighter and the edges of the hole were melted and won't fray.

    Then I pressed in a 1/2" plastic grommet. I choose a plastic grommet because I thought that brass might snag and hear other bags when all packed together and hiking/traveling. You can see the stitching my wife did from the outside.




    I untied the knot from the rope at the end and feed it through the grommet.



    Not really sure why the knot is there, but I retied it and attached the carbiner. Here it is complete and stuffed back in the bag.

    I'm gonna show my buddy this, he has a double nest deluxe. I think he'll appreciate the mod for sure.

    Thanks

    Well done. Looks great. I was thinking of doing the same to mine but I'd miss having the bag hanging off to the side, I keep the treats for the dog there.

    Just a tip; it's much easier to remove the bag with a seam ripper. That way there isn't really any worry of damaging the bag or the hammock. I just did this to both of my GTs. Other than that great tutorial though!

    I melted a hole in mine using a nut driver. Worked like a charm.
