    Primary/ secondary suspensions both attach to the same s-biner or whatever type of clip you use. Without the secondary suspension, there isn't really a way to keep the quilt pulled one way or the other. It's job isn't to keep the quilt suspended, but pull it where you need it...i.e. if you need it closer to the head end then you tighten the head end secondary

    UPDATE: Sent both of my quilts back to HG last Friday. Today (this Friday) I received my UQs back from HG. I am very impressed, 1 week turn around. New edge material and a new suspension system, plus a little overstuffing in the Incubator, and I am now good to go. As soon as I opened the package, I had to go hang my hammock and UQs. Up first was the Incubator, as soon as I layed down, I could feel the warmth, from head to toe. I reached between the quilt and hammock, and there was a nice fit, with no gap. I can remember having a little gap the last time I used the UQ. The Phoenix was the same, a nice and tight fit. Can't wait for next weekends camp out. I may just go sleep outside tomorrow, just because.

    Adam and Jen, thanks for the hard work.

    I know that the problems I encountered were just a fluke, with you trying a new suspension, but you got it right with this one. And thanks for the great customer service.

    Roadrunner,
    Can you post some pics of the new suspension, I would like to compare it to mine to see what version I have. I think I may have one of the transition suspensions.
    Thanks

    Here are the pics of the new suspension.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    You can see three lines, the bottom is just the tail from the middle line. The middle is the one that goes from one corner to the other, on the head end of the UQ.

    The top line is the long shock cord that runs from the hook or s-biner, through the side channel to the opposite hook or s-biner, and back through the other side channel, and then tied to the other end of the shock cord. This is the primary suspension.

    This next pic is the hook to attach the UQ to the hammock.......RR

    Thanks Roadrunner,
    I finally figured out what I was doing wrong, because of your pics. I only have had the secondary suspension attached to the hammock and not the primary . Now I know why I have gotten drafty cold spots , when the primary is not attached, the ends bunch up and form a wind tunnel.
    Thanks,
    Chiefstryker
