Hammock Stands For Any Type of Hammock
A Hammock Stand For Any Situation
When a person might be considering to buy a hammock there are many factors that come into play. One may live in an area where there isn't a good spot to hang the hammock without a hammock stand. Depending on the type of hammock that you want to hang there are many ways to hang one whether it be a Mayan hammock, a hammock chair, or even a larger double hammock. There is a few ways to get around not having two stable support points without actually having a hammock stand that we will touch briefly on. For example if you only had one tree you could simply build a post at the proper distance from the tree to fit your hammock. You may want to dig a hole for the post to go in and then cement around it for stability. One could use the same technique along the side of your house or any support that would be strong enough to support the weight of the person, or people on the hammock. Or you could simply make two posts to the proper length of the hammock being spread.
If you are looking for a more elegant approach and you don't have a good place to hang your hammocks then the hammock stands will most definitely come in handy. There are many different variations of the hammock stands to suit whatever hanging need you may have. There are some nice wooden hammock stands that are shaped like an arch that work well for the double hammocks with spreader bars as well as the same sized hammock stands made out of steel or aluminum. There are many other types of wooden hammock stands but the two most popular are the eucalyptus and the cypress. They both have natural properties that help them be protected from the elements and usually they are coated with multiple layers of protective coating for the extra durability. The steel and aluminum hammock stands might weigh a little less but ultimately they should last a little longer that the wooden hammock stands as they are made of metal. Of course other conditions may come into play.
When it comes to hanging hammock chairs one needs only one support above rather than two so this makes it a little more convenient. You could simply find a beam in the ceiling of your house and fasten it with a heavy duty lag eye bolt or if you want to hang it outside you can easily hang it off of any stable tree branch. If there is not a suitable tree branch or if you don't feel comfortable putting a bolt in your ceiling then there are many hammock chair stands that would work just fine. There are many unique styles of hammock chair stands to choose from, ranging from a typical C style frame, to a portable hammock stand in the shape of a tripod. The portable hammock stand will usually be a lightweight material such as aluminum as to provide easy transport. This particular hammock chair stand can weigh as little as 11 pounds and collapses nicely into a convenient carrying case. Then of course there is are double hammock chair stands that support two hammock chairs on the back of a truck or car. They attach to the trailer hitch of almost any vehicle.
There are some other very interesting hammock stands on the market today. If you do a little research you can find the perfect hammock stand for almost any hammock you would like to hang.
