No Sew, Head and Bug Net Pull-Out for Hammocks

Here’s a little tip and technique on how to increase the head room in your hammock, especially for gathered-end hammocks with integrated bug nets, such as the Grand Trunk Skeeter Beeter series, Hammock Bliss No-See-Um No More, and the Byer Moskito Traveller, to name a few. This side tie-out also works great for any hammock that lacks side tie-outs.

The trick here is to snap the pull-out near your shoulder area and as close to the edge of the hammock fabric as possible. I tested this on my Hammock Bliss mosquito hammock and placed it right near the zipper. It works great! Let me know how it works for you.

This illustration highlights the DutchWare clip on tarp pull outs, but there are other options available that will work.

      These “alligator”-type clips could work, but it puts more abrasion on your tarp or hammock that could cause tears, especially for tarps made of lightweight materials like silnylon or light polyester. The donut style illustrated is much more gentle.
