Derek has done us all a great service illustrating this super easy stand that Ed Speer originated and we simply perpetuated...
You can use smaller pipe but expect flex, and if several hundred folks will be jumping in and out of hammocks all day long at your demo you will be secure in knowing it is sturdy.
While heavy and pricy at $180-200 at lowes/HQ it really can be bought in pieces and assembled by hand (Again , if used at a demo fair a tweak from some 3 and 4 inch pipe wrences is wortht the time in security.) Otherwise there is no requirement for tools.
The really beauty of this stand is simplicity, available parts and NO STRUCTURE UNDER THE HAMMOCK...a key point should there be a failure or unsupervised child flipping out at your demo/fair.
