Everybody loves the lazy part of hammocking. But it can take a lot of work to create a perfectly lazy day—and hanging it is just the start. Hammock accessories are the little helpers that every hammocker needs to ensure hanging safety, keep fabrics clean, and protect materials and parts from the elements. So before you kick back and relax, here are 10 Hammocks.com accessories that every owner should have.

If you’re hanging your hammock between trees, tree straps are essential for easy setup and even weight distribution. If yours is a windy climate, a hammock tie-down strap is a must; it helps keep spreader bar hammocks from suddenly catapulting their occupants.
A smart alternative for difficult hanging spaces, Byer of Maine smart rope uses a nylon rope and aluminum carabiner for hanging from tree or post, and is adjustable up to six feet (you’ll need two ropes per hammock).
Most hammock stands are easily portable with two people. But for ultimate ease of movement from lawn to patio and back, add a wheel kit to your stand (Island Bay kit is compatible with metal stands only).
Spring is here, let your hammock swing! A hammock spring makes for a more comfortable, gently swaying experience.
Cotton hammocks are both gorgeous and ridiculously comfortable, but they’re more vulnerable to water and sun. A sock is the protective solution, enclosing your hammock and avoiding the hassle of constant setup and takedown.
Protect your washable non-spreader bar hammock from wear and entanglement by dropping it in a heavy-duty washing bag—a must for Mayan and other hand woven designs.
