    Lets see, the best way to describe it. A short piece of square tubing that fits into the upright, then a piece welded going horizontal (out). Then another short piece welded so that it is sticking up. Your tarp would then attach to this. The only thing to touch the stand would the the tarp suspension at the ends.

    Clear as mud?

    Then if your using this inside or just for a nap and don't need/want the tarp, you can just leave the extensions off.
    That would work, too.

    With any stand used outside, it's a good idea to tie it down. Gusty winds will knock a stand with hammock attached over the first time you turn your back.

    It's worth noting that it's possible to go smaller than I did with this stand. I built one for use in a canvas wall tent that measures 26"x100", and it easily accommodates my Speer hammock.

    When I looked at this my trailer hitch came to mind to make joints for diss-assembly. the hitch pins can hold joints together as well as anchor points, also if making slip joints midway up and across for ease of storage and transport, all can fit in a duffel bag.

    I've been looking for a durable stand with a small footprint. Weasel (youngest son, forum member) has talked about hanging permanently but his room is pretty small. The turtledog stands we made just take up too much room, and there's a lot of wasted space because of the pyramid shapes of the tripods. We couldn't get enough ridgeline for him to get a comfy lay in.

    Looked at this thread when Oldgringo linked it for someone else. I don't have any welding equipment (or skills)...but I DO have friends. Sent the link to a friend of mine who is much more capable at this stuff...he's making plans for a non-welded version for me this weekend.

    This should work great in the son's room. Makes full use of the length of the room, can be pushed up close to the far wall. It will be fully capable of being broke down, and very adjustable in height and length. Will post what he comes up with.

    Love this. I think the round top tube - two peice design modification would make it pretty versitile too.
    Just an out of shape middle aged guy who loves doing outdoor things with his great kids...
