I though that the hang that I had was a little high for a short fellow like me. I guess the clue was when I had to use a step stool to get into the hammock. So I dropped down the hammock to a proper height and it seems to be much better. I was a little scared to do this in the beginning because I wasn't sure how well the tree Straps would hold onto the pipe. I included a couple of pics of the adjustment so you guys can have a looksee!!!! ENJOY!!!
