I love this hammock stand. I'm 200 lbs and never feel like it can't hold up, even when I'm sitting sideways and swinging, full on. I did buy a can of rustoleum clear and sprayed it down real good on the bottom and where all the pieces fit together and at the ends of the peices before tapping the endcaps on, just as a precaution and after reading some other reviewers were having trouble with rust. Take the time to do it on yours, you'll feel good knowing you've done everything you can do to protect your investment. Great product! Snaps together beautifully, ready in just minutes!
My last hammock stand (wood) snapped and hit me in the head. It could have been a disaster! After much research, I selected the Green Steel Hammock Stand. My initial order was returned to Overstock (not sure why) but the chat support people resent the stand. The packaging was a bit flimsy but the stand arrived intact. It’s super sturdy, easy to assemble and very simply designed. You’ll need to buy chains to connect your hammock to the stand but you can find those at any hardware store. The chains make our hammock easy to remove during storms. You’ll need two people to move the stand. It’s easily disassembled to store in winter. You’ll love this stand!
I love the stand. It works perfectly with my hammock. I can sit for hours and read or just meditate. The stand also lets you turn your hammock almost all the way around. It's just perfect!!
I love this hammock. It's beautiful and fits the green steel hammock stand I purchased on Overstock to go with it. The only "negative" is that it doesn't look like the picture. It stays closed up until you open it with your hands to sit down. That's not really a "negative," but rather something you should know if you're aiming to buy it solely for the look in the photo.
