Hanging a hammock - the easy way

Suspending your garden hammock:

Hammocks without spreader bars are hung so that they sag way down. The hanging loops of the hammocks are fastened at approx. head height and about 3 m apart.

Fastening your hammock:

Hammocks are fastened using ropes to a tree or beam. Microropes are particularly popular for hammocks, or you can use Hammock Smartropes. Alternatively you can use hammock hooks to attach your hammock to a wall.

If the trees or walls are further apart than 3m, the hammocks can be extended by using hammock ropes or chains. The suspension point for your hammock will need to be hung using a higher point.
