The C stand was much more sturdy than I thought it would be. I would have given it a 5 star rating except for the fact that the stand did not come with a spring and I had concern for the safety of someone ending up hurt on the base. The base is very heavy duty metal but because of the shape of the metal, if you step on the leg or fall on it - it could cause injury. Needs to be more rounded legs!
I like the stand and it seems very sturdy! However I wish it was a little higher because my butt touches the bottom metal bar when sitting in my hammock chair. It may just be my style of chair. Still works great though! Glad I bought it.
I really like this product, however my hammock chair is large, so I need to shorten the ropes of the chair so I don't bottom out when I try to use the chair. Perhaps an extension for the stand could solve my problem? Than you I really am happy being able to use my hammock chair after losing the tree that I formerly used to hang it. AB
I just got the stand a couple of weeks ago, and so far so good! When it arrived, I immediately took it out of the box and sprayed a rust preventative spray. It's very sturdy for my hammock so far, and I've enjoyed a few mornings out there. I did think it was a little expensive, but I guess that's what you pay for good quality.
I have bought 3 of these and 3 hammock swings, I would not say they are even 265pd weight limit!!!! My son in law sat in it, he is very fit and a police officer in very good shape!! Kept slowly going down until he hit the cement hurting his tail bone!!!! The c arm bolts together and does not seem to be the sturdy were the two pieces join together! ( trust me it was put together correctly!) I called overstocked that night, and they told me to trash it and shipped another one within 2 days! I love them tho, so comfy!!! Maybe just got a bad one, lol! There is always a bad one in every bunch you know. I still own 3 but I'm just very careful who sits in them, don't need any more fractured tail bones! ;). Very pleased with overstock.com!!!!!
I like my Hammock Chair stand a LOT!!! I purchased a handmade hammock chair at a craft sale about a year ago and have been looking for a chair stand for a year to go along with my chair. Overstock to the rescue again!!!! This hammock stand is very sturdy!! (Holds up to 300# capacity)..I like how sturdy it is when I sit in my chair. I have it on my outdoor patio and have just started to enjoy it because of the MN weather but know I will enjoy it lots more with the beautiful weather! My only disappointment is I noticed with all the rain we had, there is a little rust starting to show where the stand is put together but I am hoping to spray the whole thing with some rust protectant in the near future! I did look at a lot of different websites for similar stands and Overstock was the best overall!!!
I am concerned that the stand wobbles when I sit on it. I can't figure out where any of the parts that connect can be altered. There's nothing that seems to be able to be done and it's not at al comfortable when it shakes if I move while I'm sitting on it. Do you have any idea why this is happening? Or it is just not a good product?
I had a fantastic experience purchasing this item. The price was the lowest I could find, shipping was very fast, Overstock kept me informed every step of the way, the product was top quality and I am very pleased with the transaction.
