    What're the extra cords for?

    I've had my 20deg zeppelin for a couple months and I really like it but it came with two pieces of shock-cordage. Can anyone tell me what their intended use is?

    Its to take place of the triangle thingy's. If you watch pat two of my review, you will se how they work. But basically you secure them at a higher point then the quilt which "lifts" up on the quilt and keeps it place, and more up against your hammock.
    I miss my 4.8Lb base weight as a ground dweller...But I sure DON'T MISS the ground.

    Here is brief instructions for suspension, as soon as the weather breaks here in Michigan we will be putting together some instructional videos and posting them on our website....

    1) Mitten Hooks on primary suspension, which runs through side channels of UQ from head to foot are to be attached to hammock suspension. Either directly if using whoopies or with a small loop of cord larks headed to webbing style suspension. (Alternately, you can attach a small s-biner to both mitten hooks at each end for a single connection point at each end)

    2) Tighten primary suspension, I prefer mine tight, lifting hammock when not weighted.

    3) Secondary suspension, shock cord attached to four corners of quilt with single centrally located cord lock, can be "looped" over gather end hammock knot or attached to hammock suspension with small s-biner. Place s-biner on quilt side of cord lock if using s-biner attachment. Adjust secondary suspension as need to locate quilt on hammock as desired and to prevent quilt for sliding towards center of hammock from both ends.

    4) Head/Foot draws need to be snug but not overly tight, fine line and draft collars help eliminate gapping.

    Here is video Mugs was referring to...
