Hammock Chairs: Comfort that Fits your Space   

Hammock chairs are versatile and space-saving options for relaxing in any outdoor or indoor location. They can be accessorized for custom performance!


Hammock Chair Set Up Options

There are three easy methods for setting up hammock chairs. Which one is best for you?


Universal Hammock Chair Stand

Stands offer easy set up anywhere. They’re light enough to relocate often, yet their heavy-gauge steel construction and 5-foot base offer secure chair hammocking wherever you get a fancy to do so.  Their compact size doesn’t require much space.


Eco-Friendly Hammock Straps

Traditionalists love to swing from trees, and sometimes they use hammock chairs to do so! These weatherproof nylon straps, two per kit, gently hug the tree and contain steel loops at the ends of the straps. Two “S” hooks are the interface between the straps and your full-size hammock or chair. The tree strap kits are lightweight and compact, a great choice for day-hikers and backpackers who want to take relaxation with them.


Chain Hanging Kit

This kit is the favorite for those who like to tap their maple trees for a taste of syrup. While that alternative fact was a lame attempt to get a laugh, these durable and length-adjustable kits offer more permanent installation anywhere you’ve got seven feet of clearance. The hardy, double zinc-coated hardware includes everything needed to hang all hammocks and hammock chairs quickly and securely. The kit’s low cost allows aficionados of hammock chairs to install one in their favorite tree and another in a covered or indoor location. You might want to drill a pilot hole smaller than the screw diameter for easier twist-in installation.


Nylon Ropes

While tree-friendly straps and strong chains are ready-to-use methods of hanging a hammock chair, they're not your only options. Some hammock enthusiasts use strong rope such as 5/16" nylon rope that holds up well in any weather and is quite affordable. It's available in a range of colours to match your hammock swing. We suggest you use new rope only to ensure that it is in good condition and will provide reliable support while relaxing with your feet off the ground


Accessories that Make the World Go Round

Hammock chairs get even better when accessorized to your preferences.

  • Spring: This 8-inch coil spring absorbs shock and puts a little bounce in your seat wherever you hang your chair
  • Swivel: OK, this will make you go round, not the earth, and it’s a good way to twirl for amusement or to get a new perspective on the world around you.
  • Hammock drink holder: This handy accessory holds bottles and similar containers, some of which contain liquid that can make your world start spinning for sure!
