I saw this thread a few months ago and thought it was an awesome but expensive idea. None the less, I keep the idea in my back pocket until I had the opportunity to bring it to life. It took me a long time but I finally got everything I needed and got it up.
I had moved to Arizona about 4 months ago and it took me about 3 months to get all the tools and the help to get this up and usable. But it is up and it is very sturdy!!!! SHOUT OUT TO HF member “dejoha” for the great diagram that I followed!!!!! I included pictures of the setup as well as the Hammock itself. It is one of my camping/hiking hammocks (Warbonnet Blackbird 1.7). But throughout the changing seasons here in Arizona, I will switch out to more appropriate hammocks. . ENJOY!!!!
I don't know how I never thought of that... I'm bringing home the threader from work this weekend! As a gas fitter, I gotta say that is AWESOME.
