So does that mean the suspension should come off the wall parallel to the screws? I was initially thinking something like this was how I was going to do it (please pardon the crude diagram):
That being the corner of a room with the hammock being the diagonal lines (the period just being a spacer since the forums don't allow multiple spaces). Would that put too much shear stress on the screws?
Thanks, guys. I'm working with some pretty limited space (and a wife's approval), so going into the ceiling joists probably isn't an option for me since I don't have the kind of room that demands.
