    Warning: Hammock stand RECALLED

    Here's a screen shot of the particulars on a commercial hammock stand being recalled for safety reasons:

    Wow, that's an expensive recall for an average sized company, but recalling would be better than the possible law suits. I always liked the way those stands looked.

    I actually have one just like that on my terrace. But I bought it off German ebay, so I doubt it'll be covered by any recall.. I am keeping a good eye on the wood layers though, because that they could separate has been evident to me from the beginning..

    It anyway doesn't work with my wbbb, so who cares..

    You're right. The CPSC has logged EIGHTEEN incident reports with one injury that required medical attention! See: CPSC
