Where to hang tree straps
Where ever you decide to hang your straps, ensure that whatever the strap is connected to can hold the intended weight of the user(s).
See a list below of ideas where you can mount the straps:
* Veranda poles
* Tree branches * Trees (if width allows)
How to hang tree straps
After choosing a sturdy place to mount the strap(s), begin by holding the end with the loop, wrap the Tree Strap around the chosen pole or tree at a height that you are happy to hang the hammock from, then slide the ring end through the loop and pull firmly until the strap is tight around the pole or tree.
From there, continue wrapping the strap around the chosen pole or tree until the appropriate length is met. To avoid the strap sliding, use a half hitch around the pole or tree to make it tighter.
Once you have achieved the appropriate length, attach the supplied 'S' hook to hang your hammock from its ring.
Once completed, repeat the above steps on the second pole or tree. Once you have done this, you should be able to hang your hammock on the straps.
We advise you check your hammock tree straps atleast once every 6 months. Outdoor elements like rain and sun can wear the straps out, and worn straps can lead to accidents and injuries.
