    Greylock 3 configuration & fitting

    You can file this under a "dumb question" heading if you want but I'm puzzled about the Greylock 3 Under Quilt I just bought.

    The tapes with line locks on two sides are the ends of the UQ and
    they adjust the fit of the UQ against my hammock, correct?

    Then the whole UQ can slide along a shock cord to adjust it's placement under the hammock so it hangs properly under my torso as I'm lying in the hammock, isn't that right?

    Well here's my puzzlement - why does this fore-and-aft shock cord end, and have a line lock, at what would be the foot end of the hammock? Seems like, to this noob, that the shock cord end and line lock would be at the head end where the placement would be more important.

    Finally there's a loop of tape sewn into one edge. I guess this is there as a handle to move the Quilt around when it's hung on the hammmock?

    Thanks

    The cinch locks/line locks tighten the ends of the UQ…should be on head and foot ends. You can seal gaps this way…or create them depending on how tight you cinch them.
    I too am not sure what the one central side tab is for.

    Shug has it right that the toggle on the end of the shock cord is to take up any unwanted slack or in other words tighten it to a hammock... It is particularly useful on shorter hammocks.

    The two section ladder loop on one side is to align with HH left shoulder tie outs... Also the corner tab near the right side knee will align with the knee side tie outs on HH... All of which results in perfect allignment,

    hmm thought an UP would be more generic than that.
