Hammock stands make outdoor living easier. Take a stand, and you can place your hammock where you want, when you want, with no need for trees or walls nearby. Follow the shade or sun around your lawn on a long weekend afternoon, or move next to your flower garden for a front row view of spring or summer color. With a hammock stand, you can do absolutely nothing absolutely anywhere.
Getting the hang of things
Before selecting a stand, there are a few points you should consider. First, our selection includes both spreader bar-compatible and non-spreader bar stands, so be sure to know your hammock type.
Second, have the bed dimensions at hand to ensure proper sizing. You don’t necessarily need an exact match. For example, a 15-foot stand can handle a 12 to 15-foot hammock. An adjustable frame with a four-foot expansion range is a flexible alternative if you’re unsure yet about bed size.
Most of our stands weigh between 50 and 60 pounds, making them easily portable with a helping hand. If you prefer a hammock stand with wheels for simpler one-person portability, add an Island Bay wheel kit from our accessories section (the kit is compatible with metal stands only).
Finally, double check the “What’s not included?” section on the stand’s product page to see if a hanging hardware kit needs to be added to your purchase.
Relaxation rather than decoration tends to be the hammock’s calling card. But that’ll change when you see one of our hammock stands in person. The dramatic arc of these curved frames gives an architectural splendor to something as ordinary as afternoon laziness. These are beautiful additions to your home’s décor—indoor or out.
Wood and metal are your two material options:
Our wood hammock stands are made from cypress, spruce, and shorea wood. These are exceptionally beautiful woods with outstanding performance characteristics. Cypress is a strong and durable hardwood, while shorea is famous for its resistance to mold, mildew, rot, and insects.
Stainless steel is a durable, low-cost metal that’s ideal for a patio or deck. Aluminum offers unmatched weather-resistance and lightweight strength.
For hanging out on hanging chairs and swings, our C-frame stands and tube frames will provide the swinging support you need.
To tree or not to tree
Tree straps are a must for hanging between trees, but if you only have one tree available, hammock posts are handy arboreal substitutes.
