    Sinister Minister,
    Thank you.
    Yes, it was many steps, but I got it.
    Much appreciated. I don't know now if my friend is free to help me, but we will get underway possibly next weekend.
    Hope to hang with it soon!

    here is mine just

    Just finished mine a few days ago. but i need some extensions on the uprights so that i can hang my BBDD winter dream tarp.

    I can cover the hammock but the tarp ridgeline is close to the ridgeline of the hammock.

    Maybe 1-1/2' extensions on the top or just make longer uprights.

    Nothing new here, but I thought I'd show off a couple photos of my PHS and thank those who worked so hard in developing this design.

    Can you also fold the feet so you have a very compact package relatively speaking?

    I've been kicking that idea around in my head TNRat. I used two knobs from a lawnmower handle to make it easier to set up, and take down the uprights and braces. I was thinking of doing the same with the outriggers. I may drill another set of holes on the sides, and mount the outriggers for storage/transport. I was also thinking of just loosening up one bolt on opposite sides of the outriggers and swinging them under the frame. What to do?

    A) Pull one bolt from each end and swing outriggers parallel.
    B) Install cleated anchor (as used on childrens playsets made of lumber)
    nuts on the underside of the outriggers, overdrill holes through main
    beams and slide in 1/2" internal diameter thin wall pipe or bushings,
    source and install 6"x1/2" shouldered eye bolts. This setup will allow
    for quick and easy bolt removal and seperate carrying of the outriggers.
    **C) Remove the outriggers completely and carry a couple 12" heavy duty
    stakes. Plant them immediately outside hammock, then run one
    continuous length of 550 cord from one syspension eye bolt, around
    one of the heavy duty stakes, through the other suspension eye bolt,
    around the other heavy duty stake, then cinched tight back through
    the 1st eye bolt with a trucker's hitch.

    I fully intended to convert to option #2, but after stumbling upon option "C"
    while trying to "make do," I elected to stay that route (8' less of 2x4 to carry).

    good ideas

    just thought id chime in though and point out that cleated anchors are also called "T-Nuts" if anyone is having issues tracking them down

    Im planning on building this stand and will definitely be implementing plan B on it
    ...in it for pics.

    SiniMini's directions in .pdf

    Might build one of these. Wanted an easier way to view SinisterMinister's directions (THANKS!) so I just put his images in a .pdf file. Hope it's useful to someone.

    The file size limit for .pdf attachments on the forum is set too small to attach the .pdf here (it's 2.25Mb), so I've got it hosted on one of my domains...

    Awesome that there are so many of these out there.

    I made my latest using 2x3 studs, and 2x4's for the verticals. Noticeably lighter, with no apparent loss in strength...
