    Inside Hang

    After I searched and read all the posts on how to hang inside I decided to go to Home Depot to look around… I found heavy duty lags by Spax and some surface mount 1200lbs D rings.
    I mounted them to studs in two opposing walls and slept like a baby all night! I wanted to take some pics with me in it but I was using my iPhone. You can see it’s hanging directly over my sofa (just in case it didn’t hold!) and Koda underneath.

    Describe how you're trying to upload your pictures, and I'm sure one of the moderators or another member will troubleshoot for you.

    I would have added a backer plate to those D rings to help spread out in side loads. Just a thought. Good Job though.

    I use the photobucket app for the iPad. I take the photos in the photobucket app and just copy and past it in the forum body.. I am not sure if the iPhone is the same way but if it is, then it is very easy...



    I use the I/lag bolts with the opening vertical and use carabiners. The carabiners just make it easy since I have several hammocks that I use inside. I sleep in my BMBH and then set up a GTUL or WB traveler for my son to play in during the day. I just clip the whoopies into the carabiners so it makes it fast and easy to switch out hammocks...

    Nothing like waking up everyday and swinging your feet out of the hammock, cept for Wednesday. Had to get the 50 pounds dog off me first.
