The straps work great! They are well made and easy to use.I definately recommend them.They are great for when you camping, just pick a couple of trees and you're good to go.They cause no harm to the bark.
Lovely swing. I loved the look of the rope but it is way too short for our 9 ft porch ceiling. It also doesn't come with any hardware to hang it from the ceiling. Had to buy new rope and searched all over for galvanized eye screws and locking carabiners to hang it. Had it not been on sale, I'd be more disappointed with all the extra expense because the rope and hardware wasn't that cheap or easy to find. I researched how to hang it on this old house. But the swing itself is exactly what I wanted and I still like rope better than chain. Haven't hung it yet as I'm waiting for my hardware ordered elsewhere to be delivered.....
We ordered it on 7/17/14 and received it on 7/26/14 So we had to wait a fairly long time to get it. When we got it it was nicely tied up inside the package to keep it from tangling. All of the pieces were there and it was a bright orange color. We have yet to try it out as we need to figure out where and how we are going to put it up. There was nice instructions on how to use it and how to hang it. After a month or so I will write another review about longevity and how comfortable it is.
This is a BIG base and hammock. I bought it to put out on our new pool deck and for my husband to relax on. The base and chains are all heavy duty and very sturdy. They will last for years. The hammock itself is canvas. It had loose threads upon arrival and got very dirty after about 10 days of exposure. It cleaned up nicely and I scotchgarded it in the hopes that I would have to clean it less often. I would recommend taking in the canvas portion for periods of non use. I will have to replace the hammock much sooner than the base, but hammock replacements are relatively inexpensive compared to the base. It is comfortable and two medium sized adults can easily fit on it. My kids absolutely love it. I hope to have many years of enjoyment.
