We think that when it comes to hanging hammocks your safety and security are top priority. It is impossible to relax if you think that you might come crashing down at any moment. That is why we prefer tried and tested, heavy duty zinc plated steel or certified climbing ropes in our hammock and hammock chair suspension kits.
Other things to bear in mind are to attach the Hammock to something sturdy. Check your hammock suspension before entering the hammock to make sure it is still safe. Do not hang your hammock too high from the ground, twelve to eighteen inches is good. Do not hang your hammock over rocks or other dangerous areas. When hanging a hammock chair from a tree branch make sure the branch is strong and healthy.
