    I'll have to set it up to figure out what length of PVC I need for my tarp. I think I'll cut them long enough for my 12' tarp... because, why not. I'm not exactly low on weight with this stand.
    Messed around with a lot of PVC. Amazing what you can do with it and. $12 Harbor Freight heat gun. Heat it up and can mold it into about anything or create your own angles instead of the standard 45 or 90.

    That's a good idea, and free. I've got a heat gun and bunch of PVC sitting around. I like the idea of molding a single piece around the hex aluminum pole and bending it rather than using my JB Welded fittings.

    For something associated with relaxation like hammocks, “tensahedron” is a bad enough, prickly-sounding name. But collapsahedron? C’mon. Might as well involve trap doors, falling blades, offer of final cigarette, blindfold etc.

    With a little more thought I could have called it the RETRACT-a-Hedron.

    To answer Geoff i do not use any foot end anchors. I usually just hang a gear bag on the end to give some tension until i lay down.

    Collapsahedron 覧 my collapsing version of the Tensahedron

    OK, I replaced the Amsteel on one of the apexes with what is essentially a locked brummel figure eight. I have diamond knots on my hammock CLs, so the small loop on each end will just slip over the knot.

    The rubber piece I cut from a narrow bicycle tube as suggested above and is only there to cover the sharp ends of the aluminum poles.

    Collapsahedron w/ 12' hammock

    Hey all,

    First time hanger here with a first time build. Thought you might like to see the limits of the paint pole collapsahedron stand tested. Could it accommodate a 12' x 68" gather-ended hammock?

    For the build, I took most of my cues from Jefiner's variation, hanging directly from the extra little aluminum extenders to gain a few inches.
    8" Amsteel continuous loops serve as suspension, and the ridgeline is set to 120". Only a few inches above the ground, but it seems to work.
    The foot end is about a foot higher than the head end.
    I'm about 6'3", so when hanging my feet almost touch one of the supports, and my head runs an inch or two under the other support.

    If you see anything wonky, I'm open to adjustments! I do wonder if a flatter lay can be achieved...

I'm roughly 150 Lbs and would like to build a portable stand. I made one out of wood last year and enjoyed it.

    Thanks for any thoughts/ideas!
    Did you try this?
