Hang a Hammock

Making an Adjustable Hammock Ridgeline with a LoopAlien

Making ridgelines for hammocks is pretty easy: all you need to do is tie a line from end to end on the hammock. However, making the ridgeline adjustable allows you to modify the sag of your hammock incrementally to suit your taste. I have used long Whoopie Sling-style ridgelines, which work fine. This method shows how to use a LoopAlien to make the adjustment. The benefit is that you can easily add this to or take it off a hammock, adjust it, and not worry about splicing. The LoopAlien doesn’t have any sharp edges either, so there is no worry about ripping a hole through an added bug net or on your hammock.

Enjoy!
