This is a nice sturdy hammock stand. The price was better than most retail outlets. It was easy to assemble (my 82 year old father put it together for me) and we needed no tools, just a mallet to pound in the caps on the ends of the feet. I was afraid it was too big but my hammock fit perfectly. My teenage son has already used it to read and take naps. Another good Overstock purchase.
I have been looking for a hammock that would hold my large body without bending the frame. I finally found this one. While visiting my nephew for Memorial Day celebration I was very delighted to see it in his yard. The rest is history.What really caught my interest was the fact that the weight limit was 450 pounds, weighing 300 plus it's was hard finding one at the many stores I went to. Even purchase a couple which the store clerks said would be no problems, but when I got them home, there were problems and ended up taking it back for a refund. I enjoy it day and night, you can not go wrong on this product in my opinion.
Very good value for the money but not terribly attractive and VERY heavy! It is definitely large (as mentioned by many reviewers!) and seems not to be the most sturdy. Have had no problems so far (in just the last few weeks) but the height of hammock season awaits!
This stand is a great buy. It will accomodate any size hammock, although you may need to buy some additional rope or chains to reach from side to side if you use a smaller hammock. I have a large two person hammock and it fits great. I had the hammock tied to a couple of trees, but one of my children wants to use it in the son, and my other child prefers the shade so the stand was the only way to go for us. It is a little heavy for one person to drag from place to place, but so well constructed that it stands up to that kind of abuse.
I was very pleased with how incredibly easy it is to put together and take apart the hammock stand. I've moved it 2 times so far (and I'm still not happy with where I put it) and had to disassemble it each time, so I'm thrilled with the ease of putting it together. With that said, it is very sturdy and holds both my husband and me without a groan or squeek! Two thunbs up!
I thought it would be difficult to put this stand together. It was very easy to assemble (I am under 5 feet). I waited for a while to write this as I wanted to see how durable it is. It has been outside since we got it and it looks brand new. It holds a hammock that will hold two people as my husband and I have tried it. We have enjoyed the comfort and convenience of this product.
I bought the ' Toupe steel Hammock stand ' and the ' Duraweb woven Hammock' both together and had theme shiped together for one dollar (great offer) . They were simple to put together (stand & Hammock) both strong yet easy to move around the yard, can easily be taken apart and moved in a car if needed. This pair are very comfortable to lay on (support over 400 lbs) and look very cool in the yard also. I was super duper pleased with both and would of course recommend theme to anyone who likes to nap outside or sunbath or lay in at night and watch the stars & planets go by. This was a great deal for I saw one just like it in a store that was hundreds of dollars more so of course I thought I got a great deal. I can't waite to show my friends it's so inviteing and you just naturaly lay down on it when you walk up beside it and then "voila" you get this big grin cause by relaxation. My wife and I really do like it and think you will too.
The stand is easy to assemble and take apart. It's very durable. It doesn't move around when you hang the hammock on it. I like the idea of being portable. I can attach the hammock to it with no problems. I had no problems ordering it on line. It was delivered in the timeframe mentioned online. It was in good condition when I received it. I didn't have to complain about the shipping. It was great. I would recommend this product to everyone.
The hammock stand had great reviews!... so I didn't hesitate to buy it!... it's huge (15.9 feet)... super easy to assemble (no tools needed!)... very sturdy (supported 2 healthy adults without a problem!)... great neutral color... can't beat it being delivered to the door for next to nothing!!... Bought it with the "Deluxe Green Hand-woven Polyester Hammock" in green (by Pawley's island!!) item #11162997... A perfect match.... Excellent stand and hammock! I would buy both again in a second!!
I love it, but I wouldn't say it was really all that heavy duty. I bought it to have a seriously heavy duty stand, so my wife and I could lie in the hammock at the same time. It's not tough enough for that. I can tell it wouldn't stand up to that. I have lain in the hammock with my dogs, and with my daughter. The stand wobbles now. That's a bad sign. But it didn't break outright, so I guess that's a good sign.
