I really wasn't to sure about buying a hammock that I could not actually see and touch but let me tell you this hammock is great. The colors are great, its durable to handle the kids playing on it and the pillow top makes it great for when you have had a long day and want to relax!
Just put together my new stand...I think it took me longer to get the spring on then anything else....the opening at both ends is very small....had to hammer it to get the top in and had to put an s hook on the bottom to fit the loop of the chair on....otherwise it seems fine and very strong
The only reason I rated this a good instead of excellent is because the swing my kids have has a foot piece that is connected, the armrests are adjustable and the cupholder is in the armrest. These arm rests are slightly high for me to sit in the swing a long time comfortably. The drink holder hangs from the top bar. It's okay, but not super convenient. The foot piece dangles separately and gets in the way if you don't want to use it. But here's the thing: this is built VERY WELL and will last. AND it was 1/3 the price my kids paid for theirs! I'll live with little inconveniences for that kind of a bargain!
The shipping box for the C-stand is completely inadequate. It arrived with parts protruding outside the box on 2 different spot. This cause the paint to be scraped off of the stand in a couple of spots. It was too heavy and cumbersome to deal with returning, so we assembled it anyway. The top portion of the stand did not fit properly into the bottom section and the screw holes would not line up until resorting to a hammer to force the top far enough down into the bottom portion to allow the supplied screws to be installed. The chair is confusing to assemble. I did not expect to be required to assemble the chair itself. The wood on the chair arms is very rough and not at all smooth like furniture should be. It requires sanding and then you would need to re-stain it for it to look right. Once it is assembled, the back of the chair tends to hit the C-stand a lot. If you have a place that you can hang the chair without a stand, it would be FAR better. The C-stand is okay but it does not compare to one that is hanging from a support beam. With all that being said, the chair is comfy and suits our purposes fairly well. It seems to be safe.
