    I think I am wrong on the secondary. I haven't seen the new Incubator, but I believe there is a line that runs from one S hook to the other S hook on the far end and through channels on each side. I think that is primary.

    Secondary would be those running from the corners perhaps. I don't want to make it more confusing, but I think the most important thing is to tighten those that run S hook to S hook.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    When I bought the Incubator, and my Phoenix for that matter, both had a long shock cord running from end to end, along the side channels, with S-biners on the ends. Then last year, Adam had a thread about changing the suspension, and adding the draft collars. I sent both UQs back, and had the DC added and the suspension was changed. The side channels are now closed off where the LineLocs were added. I'll see if I can get a pic up in a bit.......RR

    UQ shock cord slipping

    This is what the suspension should look like if it is the newer version. There should be 3 pieces. First is the full length shock cord that is one huge loop running all the way around the channels(primary). This is the piece Adam is talking about tying a knot in to shorten. The next piece has the line locks(secondary). This should be a smaller piece if shock cord running from one line lock to the other. This allows you to tighten down toward the head end, foot end, or pull one corner tighter than the other. The last part is the tiny cord used to cinch up the draft collar. This is my under quilts.com quilt but I did the suspension the same as my incubator.

    Ahhhh, when my suspension was changed, they did away with the primary and I only have the secondary. If you look in this pic, the little grosgrain that holds the lineloc is sewed across the channel where the primary used to run. [IMG][/IMG]

    UQ shock cord slipping

    I can't see the pic but if the primary is gone then you will definitely have problems with slippage. It should be an easy remedy though.

    Maybe a small burn hole in the original primary suspension (one either side) and re-running it through to get it back?







    Orrrrr- HG can simply offer to fix it as they so generously have before I posted!!

    How do the (secondary suspension) line lock cords hook up on the suspension end. Do they hook all the way up near the attachment point of the main suspension? Im trying to visualize this suspension system in its entirety so I can feed ideas on out how I want to do the suspension on my DIY.
