This is the wrong stand for our hammock - which is all fabric w/o wood cross sections to disperse the hammock fabric. It is entirely too large for our patio and is not practical for a standard home. Because it spans 15' long and the support bars on the floor are incredibly long as well, it requires a large plot of land to live on. GOOD NEWS - assembly was very easy. I have owned for one year now (Seattle, WA) and it has not rusted from living outside on a rooftop deck. If only it wasn't so monolithic it just might be more than a waste of space. I wish I could return mine however.
Our 1st stand had a "crimp" in 1 of the foot sections. Replaced the entire stand. The process for return was a bit convoluted. Directions were not clear to me. However customer service did explain the process more thoroughly. Could have been a much smoother process with a written more detailed and complete return process procedure.
Comes with hooks and chains that you can use to hang your hammock. Shiny black finish is nice and was unbelievable easy to snap together - really you just snap one piece into another, the buttons on one pole pop through the other and you are ready to kick back.
Not sure if I'd recommend.....sturdy, easy to assemble. Supposed to be weatherproof, but already started rusting after getting wet a few times. I spray painted with some Rustoleum primer and paint. We will see. I'm in Louisiana. Rains about every afternoon in summer. Probably better for drier climate area.
I purchased this for utilitarian purposes only. We had to remove one of the large branches on our tree that was previously used as a hammock hanger. I should have bought one long long ago. It's hard to achieve the perfect fit with tree branches because; you're just trying to do your best with what you've got. This is the perfect fit. Once assembled its not hard to move to wherever the best shade happens to be. Since the hammock we are using is the one I purchased back in '08, I'm easily able to assess that the huge difference in comfort is due solely to my new stand. I love it.
Very nice quality- sturdy hammock stand. Easy to assemble/disassemble with 1 person. Transports easily in 3 pieces. Very satisfied with product.

While this thing is seriously heavy in the box by itself, the individual pieces are easy to hold and put together by yourself. The 2 poles that stick out seem like they're kind of lose and they only snap into place. I think I would feel more comfortable if there was some sort of bolt/nut action going on there. Although, I'm not worried about this baby falling apart. Its sturdy and holds 2 people without any funny sounds. hehe. I also like that it's easy to take apart and store in the garage for the next warm season. Lucky for me, over here in Southern California, I have a few more weeks of sunshine. I love chillin' in my hammock. YES This gets the job done. Cool beans. Thanks!

I purchased this stand with the lovely hammock for my husband, he loves it and it's big enough for both of us to relax in.
