Upon set up the stand appeared okay. However the actual hammock is a flawed design. No matter how high you hook up the hammock it cannot be adjusted to work. When you lay in it your butt hits the bottom frame. The hammock just stretches like a rubber band. We spent half hour setting up and then half hour taking down, repacking and hauling it to UPS to return. Do NOT buy this product. I have purchased through Overstock before, and have been pleased. I am shocked they even carry this utterly useless product.
