    Word of caution though - you may want to reinforce the inside with a wooden dowel?

    try simply passing your suspension thru the hanging loop under the ridge pole and using an S-hook on the end of your tube

    that would effectively make your loops/weight want to move outward and possibly solve the issue w/o drilling any holes

    You do not want the loop hanging from the tripod to shift from vertical way all ideally as this is what will risk some tipping.

    The s hook hanging from the open end of the ridge pole may work? But I would make sure you cut the pole to be very close to the length of the point where to loop attaches to the ridge pole...otherwise you I believe create some greater torque on the pole and the system.

    My pole has like 6-7 inches of added length on each pole end that goes beyond the point of the loop...if I were to attach by those ends - I suspect it would bend the pole

    Wow this thread is super helpful! I have a couple quick questions I'm hoping the experts here can assist with (I'm currently on page 55 of this thread and am getting a bit overwhelmed with all the ideas)...

    1. Would a 10 foot top rail be long enough to use with an 11 foot hammock? Not planning on using this outdoors (just in my basement) so no need for a tarp...
    2. For those using a 10 inch fence top rail are you cutting off the tapered end of the rail?
    3. Would a simple hack saw be sufficient to cut the top rail?

    Thanks and sorry for the noob questions!

    You can probably use a 10' top rail if you hook the hammock almost directly to the pole. The general rule is a Ridgeline length of 83% of the hammock length. Remember that doesn't include any suspension. If your Hammock fabric is 11' long that doesn't leave much room to play with any type of long suspension. Of course everyone prefers different amounts of sag in their hammock so if you like a lot of sag you can get by with a shorter top pole like a 10' pole. I generally suggest a top pole around 13' just because it allows for more flexibility but again, if you only want to use it in one room at one height you can work it out with a shorter pole.

    Most people use two top rails cut down so you can break it down in to two more portable pieces and use the tapered end from one to fit inside the other. If you want to keep it a one piece you could leave it or cut it off, whichever you like best. A hack saw works fine for cutting it but you may want to file or sand the burrs off after.

    Add me to the list





    The hammock is a Dutchware Chameleon and the ridge pole is 4m (or just over 13ft in old money).

    A flying, or Australian Turtledog for the garden room,

    Suspended from hooks on the roof beams.

    Unhooked from one end and leant up against the other wall,
