    2 Pole Hanging System

    Hello, Im a complete newbie to this site and wanted to share my diy project since I have got a lot of good info from members.

    So I got an ENO Singlenest with slap straps as a gift for my birthday a few months back and haven't been able to use it at the house due to no suitable trees or supports to hang from. I searched the DIY section and found many great options but not exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a simple design that didn't take up space in my yard. The turtledog design for example is a great idea, but in my opinion, a major eye sore!!

    So I came up with this setup:

    (2) 9 ft. long Steel tubes that fit snuggly into 2.5 ft long sleeves that are cemented permanently into the ground. And thats all there is to it! I still have to find some caps for the tops of the poles and caps for the sleeves when they are not in use, but I'm too busy hanging to care right now.

    I have read about 4x4's with braces and ridgeline support but I wanted a more sturdy design. Let me know what you think!
