    Re: Handy Hammock - The Ultralight Hammock Stand

    Ok it's tricky... But I think second and third time up will be sub 10 minutes with under 5 doable...

    Weird packaging but functional...



    Apparently mine received the extra quality controlled it needed...


    Final happy product...



    Edit: two minutes after hitting submit on the last post it fell over with me in it... No damage other than wife laughing at me when it happened... The little ball came out on one side

    Does it need to be down more snug than that, rope was run under with ball on top... confused I is...

    Handy Hammock - The Ultralight Hammock Stand

    One of mine came today also. What's really strange is it's labeled package 2 of 2.
    I guess the post office likes to do things backwards.

    I think you might have set up the ground anchors incorrectly. Please check this video clip - thanks!

    Re: Handy Hammock - The Ultralight Hammock Stand

    Alrighty, I'll try that... I didn't realize I needed to do the knot thing around the pegs... Oh well it held, I knew it was my fault some how... The system is cool as all get out, I love the idea of it... And it's nice to be mobile and light...

    Handy Hammock - The Ultralight Hammock Stand

    Well done video, Jason!

    Wrapping the ball around the pegs and tucking it into the loop is a small but important detail.

    Jason,

    The instructions at http://www.handyhammock.co.uk/page/instructions show a different method of securing the guy lines than you show in the video. Which do you recommmend?

    Taylor,
    Not sure I follow you. The video I linked to and the pdf instructions on our site show the same set-up for the ground anchors.

    Hopefully this image clarifies...

    Darn, I can't believe I missed this great group buy. I have been looking at these since they came out. The new job kept me so darn busy I couldn't get on the forum as much. Oh well, maybe another time.

    Great job Jason!!!!!
