Hammock chairs and hammock swings are versatile and space-saving options for relaxing in any outdoor or indoor location. 

Hammock Chair Set Up Options

There are three easy methods for setting up hammock chairs. Which one is best for you?

Hammock Chair Stand

Stands offer an easy set up anywhere. They’re light enough to relocate often, yet their heavy-duty steel construction and large base offer secure chair hanging wherever you’d prefer to do so. Their compact size doesn’t require much space.

  • Locations: Yard, porch, deck, patio, living room, bedroom,

Eco-Friendly Hammock Straps

Traditionalists love to swing from trees, and sometimes they use hammock chairs to do so. These weatherproof straps, two per kit, gently hug the tree and contain steel loops at the ends of the straps. Two “S” hooks are the interface between the straps and your full-size hammock or chair. The tree strap kits are lightweight and compact, a great choice for day-hikers and backpackers who want to take relaxation with them.

  • Locations: Trees and locations with posts or beams including porches, pergolas, gazebos and suitable spots indoors

Chain Hanging Kit

These durable and length-adjustable kits offer a more permanent installation anywhere you’ve got seven feet of clearance. The hardy, double zinc-coated hardware includes everything needed to hang all hammocks and hammock chairs quickly and securely. The kit’s low cost allows aficionados of hammock chairs to install one in their favourite tree and another in a covered or indoor location. You might want to drill a pilot hole smaller than the screw diameter for easier twist-in installation.

  • Locations: Trees, gazebos, pergolas, covered porches, ceiling beams or joists

Nylon Ropes

While tree-friendly straps and strong chains are ready-to-use methods of hanging a hammock chair, they’re not your only options. Some hammock enthusiasts use strong rope such as 5/16″ nylon rope that holds up well in any weather and is quite affordable. It’s available in a range of colours to match your hammock swing. We suggest you use new rope only to ensure that it is in good condition and will provide reliable support while relaxing with your feet off the ground
