    Anyone knows if a TTTM (single or double) might fit? ENO's are not that easy to buy over here ... Thanks!

    Edit : couldn't wait, so I bought a Ticket To The Moon single this afternoon and it works just fine, just unzip it and lay back. Weather was to nice to wait : hangtime now ;-)

    I liked the looks of this stand. Wife dragged me to Ikea so since I was there, we searched out this stand and bought it. We got their hammock too. I have a Kammock and thought this would work for it but the stand ended up too short. Had to use the hammock designed for it for now.

    A tree to tree might fit if its the light hiker, I don't know about a standard.

    Was thinking about adding some pipe to the bottom to make it longer to fit my other hammocks on it. But I do like the compactness of it right now. Fits perfect in one of our bedrooms.

    My solution was to take a few minutes and make a set of tarp deck anchors.

    Wow, thank you gplg, my daughter just purchased one of these stands from IKEA, I was worried on how to rig the rainfly. Now thanks to you I know exactly how it should be done.

    Gonna pick me up one of these. Maybe something like this would be good to be a tarp tie off spot in the ends.

    I have one of these as well. I used pins with ring locks instead of the bolts and I can break it down into 4 foot sections in about a minute.

    I am definitely making some of these PVC extensions.

    Re: Ikea GR hammock stand mod

    Great idea on the deck anchors gmcttr! Here is my HG hex staked out on the deck. I tied off my ridgeline seperate of the hammock stand to the down spout on one end and a pole supported by conuit clamps to the opposite corner of the deck.
