Child's hammock fitting

Postby Bozykid » 17 Jun 2014, 20:16

I've been scratching my head over the fitting of child's front cab hammock (the nla one that screws into a and b post
Does anyone know a good height to screw brackets in ? Trying to measure from different places to get it level and worrying that it's too high for decent headroom or too low going to hit stearing wheel

Does anyone have any ideas on decent heights and measurements ?

Thanks

i will measure height for you tomorrow eve

on the A post I set it a good 8-10 inches above the steering wheel to allow for sag.

Because its a hammock it doesnt need to be a 100% level as all the weight automatically goes to the middle, its almost impossible to get level as the seat belt mounts are in the way.

Thanks sternal

Didn't want to have to drill anymore holes than I needed to , so want to get it right first time . If you do get a chance to measure yours I'd appreciate it

Cheers
