    Hammock Stand from Lowes

    I found a heavy duty hammock stand in Lowes today, $117.00. The stand is 15' long and will support up to 400 lbs. I tried my Bias Winnie on the stan at found that i couldn't adjust it enough to keep it off the ground. So, I pulled out the Grand Trunks Ultralight and wouldn't you know it works. I plan on using the stand this weekend for a car camping trip at a location that has no trees. If the temps stay like this for the rest of the week I'm going to roasting at night.

    The Garden Treasures is the one I purchased. I'll get a photo posted with the GT installed when I have a chance.

    Looks like one I got a couple of years ago from a hammock store at a Tangiers Outlet store.

    I can hang a ENO DN from it and have done so and have used it a couple of nights to sleep in. However I can not get the angle right so it was not a very comfortable night. Only reason I used it was because we were having some work done in the bedroom and it is too hot and humid right now to sleep outside.

    I have the same stand. It was too low for my Hennessy DJXL to stay off the ground so I built a TurtleLady stand instead. It's my "laboratory" in the back yard for testing out new hammocks / tarps / suspensions / bugnets etc.

    hammock stand extension

    Just to let you know, I have a similar stand that I use in the bedroom for my ENO DN. I had extensions made to raise the height of the ends about 12-14 inches. This made hanging my hammocks much more enjoyable / useable.

    I have been using the original pipe extensions for over 3 years now with no problems. Others have had bending issues with the type of pipe they used but mine are just exhaust pipe bent at a muffler shop.

    I originally posted in ($40 hammock stand) started by nogods where I contributed showing pictures and descriptions of the extensions I had made. They can be found by searching in my profile by going to stats, find all posts by firecaptain53, scrolling down to $40 hammock stand.
