    Indoor Hammock Stand Setup - suggestions welcome!

    I've been an indoor hammock sleeper for about 3-4 years now, total convert. I had a previous setup that was great, eyelet screws lagbolted into wall studs through a piece of 1x4 pine to protect the drywall. BUT - my landlord sitch has changed and I can no longer connect to the studs with my setup. So, I bought a wood hammock stand online, a Sunnydaze larch wood banana shaped thing (picture attached). I realised after setup that I misread the stand's hang height online (arg!). After a lot of fiddling with it and adding a ridgeline, I can sort of get my Nakie hammock at the right height and a better hang angle...but the edges are still too tight. Might build myself a stand at some point like I had originally planned, but for now I'd like to find a way to make this one a bit more sleepable. Any suggestions to fix this?

    If you have the money those Yobo Hammock Stands look to be the best indoor stand that you could safely put up without worrying about putting any holes in the wall.

    I do stands alot, probably 90%+ of the time, and have found that if I have two poles the same height it works best for me to attach the foot end directly to the pole/stand and then adjust the head end out from the pole/stand until I have the right amount of drop. That's my starting point. That is if you usually have your foot end higher like some of us do.
    Adjusting the ridgeline a bit shorter should ease up on the hammock edge tension but also will lower the overall hang.

    Have you tried the stand without the ridgeline.?
    Outside the rl makes sense, consistent sag, blah blah blah. But indoors I prefer none since Iím not altering the tree distance. Simple enough to try.
    And changing to shorter custom continuous loops or whoopies can give you a good hang without straps and chains. And it could quiet things down, if chain connections is squeaky?
    Nice looking stand and set up.
    Keep the landlord happy.
