    Help IDing Costco Hammock Stand

    I realize this is not a camping stand but I have scoured the internet with no luck.

    I bought the hammock stand below several years ago (6-7) from Costco. The hammock held up great until last year. Since then I have been unable find out the make/model. Costco no longer sells it and was no help.

    I attempted to buy a hammock from Lowes or Home Depot last year but it did not fit. I tried adjusting/shortening the ropes but that resulted in too much tension and ropes snapping. It was comedic.




    Anyway summer is here again and I would love to get a hammock back on here. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    I imagine most any hammock would fit, hopefully without breakage or comedy . A helpful number for us would be the distance between the 2 hooks.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Whats the distance from end to end of your stand?
    Or hook to hook?
    You might end up just buying a regular hammock, like an ENO, Hammock Bliss, or similar?
    If Costco won't help you, then we will.
    May have to custom build a hammock to fit the spacing?

    +1 on the DIY. Especially if its only for the yard. Pick a colour!

    Check out the no sew options even!

    Thanks for the prompt reply guys, much appreciated.

    @acercanto, @gargoyle

    O.k. here are two distances.

    Hook hole to hook hole = 112"

    Hook to Hook = 107"-108"

    The hooks themselves hang down a bit once inserted.





    @Browny

    Thanks for the reference. I'll check it out.

    Did the hammock that came on it have spreader bars? That sounds a bit short (between the hooks) for a gathered end hammock to have the sag it needs w/o your back touching the stand. It might fit...but you might end up having to shorten your hammock body a bit.

    Or I could be completely wrong.

    more info to help

    I have the same problem trying to find a replacement hammock, I have attached pictures of my Squirrel eaten hammock. We had a hard winter and the squirrels need more warm materials for their homes. If you guys can help us it would be great.

    Thanks

    Yes the former hammock did have spreader bars.

    The un-researched replacement did as well. It was too long so I tried shortening up the ropes but the tension was then too great... snap, crackle, pop went the ropes.

    Did you try replacing the ropes on the other hammock?

    Yup, that is nearly the EXACT set up we had except the former hammock was tan in color.

    This is my third attempted in about a year at trying to find a replacement. If things don't work out this time I am calling 1-800-GOT-JUNK
