1971RE: Hammock Camping Question on a HEAVY USE hammock
- Jul 1 5:20 PM
MessageJodi, I feel your pain! Having a hammock fail under you is certainly not conducive for sleep!Your hanging space is limited and thus not suitable for many stands that angle outward as much as 15'. Instead of a stand, can you mount directly to the walls? I've hung my hammock in the bedroom using 3/4" thick eyebolts screwed into 4' long 2X4's that are mounted horizontially so they could be screwed into several of the vertical studs inside the walls--dosen't look pretty, but it works. My walls are sheetrock over thin boards. Attaching the horizontal 2X4's to the wall studs is the key--I used lots of 4" long screws. This has held for several years now and I too sleep in the hammock nearly every night.Hope you're back up and sleeping soon! ....Ed
Ok y’all – I am totally happy sleeping in a hammock. Beats a bed by a mile!! I now have my Byer Traveller hammock hanging in my room – but – after only a couple of weeks in it, the strands are starting to break (had one break last night – hard time going back to sleep after that wondering if the blooming thing was gonna crash on me in the middle of the night!!). I will be sleeping in this thing every night. BUT – here is the problem – I have to be able to hang it within a 9 ½ foot area. Any suggestions? Remember, this thing will be used EVERY night.
