    I lost one too for my wife's RR. I bought a full width half bar from Dutchware and cut it down. Make sure you get the half with the insert.

    From looking at your attached photo you might try a "tighter pitch". In my experience if you reduce the hang angle (tighter pitch) it reduces shoulder squeeze. I also added a ridgeline to get...

    Yes, I did extend the Wooki head end loop 2" or so but apparantly that was not enough. In fitting I ended up extending the loop another 2" to get the Wooki placed where I liked it.

    It was the quilt hanger that failed. Snapped the hook off the end. Everything I've read says you want the Wooki tight to the bottom of your hammock and plastic hardware is not strong enough.
