Thank you for the warning.
If my former husband ever comes aroung again, I am going to suggest a Hammock Hang, I will be sure to hang the hammock I will loan him, next to mine, just a little ahead of mine. Then I will be sure to damage my pole the same way you did. I am sure you see where I am going with this. Oops accidents happen.
Seriously, I would send Lei a letter letting them know what happened, it could be fatal to someone.
Whenever I purchase something new and read the warnings I always wonder how some of the listed dangers came to be included, this would be one of those crazy sounding warnings. I would not have guessed my pole part would become a missile, that could kill someone. Just like the guy that had a Stingray barb through his heart.
