Besides, I rarely hang more than a foot and a half off the ground, and although a potential failure may be a bit embarrassing and uncomfortable, it likely wouldn't be catastrophic.
I know the saying is never hang higher than you are willing to fall but just keep in mind the should the head end fail a head injury is possible. Not as critical if over grass or pine duff but if you are in a basement or garage over cement it can be pretty dangerous. Just be careful.
