Looking for a easy fast way to set up the ridgeline for your hammock tarp?



continuous ridgeline for hammock tarp Derek at TheUltimateHang has put together an illustration showing how he uses Dutchware hardware to create his tarp ridgeline. Derek made use of a Tarp Flyz & a Dutch Hook. The Dutch stingerz can be used in place of the tarp flyz. This makes it easy to align your tarp over the hammock before tying down the guylines.

Using the ridgeline over or under the tarp is usually a personal preference. In winter when expecting snow many will use the ridgeline under the tarp. Having a ridgeline under the tarp also gives you a place to hang a light or a few other smaller items.
