    Thanks for the detailed explanation of the plywood screen, SeanKroll.

    How do you have the para-cord attached to the panels?

    Thanks.

    Drilled 3/8" holes low, mid, high, and tie cord into a loop, snug when unfolded fully.

    Got it!

    Also, I think I am going to re-evaluate my thoughts on rigging with the idea that I want to try to keep (well) below the WWL of the weakest link.
