Hammock Hang Calculator
I've had this bugging me ever since I drew up the "Optimal Distance Between Anchors": wouldn't it be cool if there were a calculator that would figure out all the math for me and tell me the optimal distance?
Well, your dreams have just come true.
Just out of beta, I am ready to launch the Hammock Hang Calculator.
The program launches with some defaults, but you can enter in the distance between trees, your preferred sit height, and even your ridgeline, and the program will spit back how high you should secure your hammock without breaking a sweat.
Improvements for Version 2
- Optimized for mobile devices (take this with you in the field!) (I haven't tested yet, but I'm confident it already works on mobile devices, it's just the screen size I need to tweak)
- Convert to inches if distances equal less than 1 foot
Let me know what you think and if you can recommend any improvements.

I love it. Along with many of your illustrations, I am sure that it will also help a lot of new hangers out there (and more than likely some veterans as well...: )
You do great work my friend. Your enthusiasm for what we do is so evident and our little niche of the camping world is lucky you found us. This new calculator is just the latest in the string of great things you have come up with over there in Utah.
Keep up the good work Dejoha!
D, It's late & the old eyes & brain may not be communicating but shouldn't the suspension length x 2 + ridgeline length = more than the distance between trees??
As in your default setup: 2.1' x 2 + 9' = 13.2' but the distance from tree to tree is 15'. Seems like stretched tight with zero sag the suspension wouldn't reach tree to tree??
Not knockin your work, I think this is super cool. I'm just a little confused. (which isn't anything new either)
As jeffjenn writes there´s something strange with the calculations.
But I´m still VERY ompressed of the work and effort in this project!
:thumbup:Terrific job dejoha. Very slick and fun to play with. :thumbup:
Fantastic work! That is really cool. Thanks.
Wow dejoha that is some awesome work.
that's awesome! (and thanks for the metric conversions as well)
Very nice! Agree that calculation adjustments are needed, but sweet!
