Why mess with homemade trial-and-error hammock-hanging methods? There’s nothing worse than going back and forth to the hardware store when you forget a part. With this Universal Chain Hanging Kit, there’s no need. Each kit includes two of everything – chain lengths, S-hooks, and hooked eye bolts – so you’ve got all you need to set up your hammock. Whether your hammock has spreader bars or not, this universal kit is the answer. It also works great for hammock chairs.

The hardware in the kit is treated with zinc so that it’s extra resistant to weather. No more worries about rust or metal fatigue. Just decide on your location, screw the eye bolts into the source (tree, beam, etc.), hang the S-hooks, and sling the chain. Attach your hammock and you’re ready to relax. 

Using the Universal Chain Hanging Kit with any hammock or chair in any location. Set it up in your backyard, under your balcony, or between your two favorite shade trees. With easy set-up and quality hardware, you’ll be lounging in minutes. 

Make sure you are installing this kit in a solid structure. Screwing EyeBolt MUST be screwed in all the way until Eye is resting against the structure. Leaving a gap the between eyebolt and the structure will eventually cause the exposed eyebolt pin to break.

Determining the appropriate beam size for your hammock bolt-in anchors involves considering several factors, such as the material of the beam, the load capacity of the anchors, and the intended use of the hammock. Here are some general guidelines:

  1. Material and Strength of the Beam:

    • If you're installing bolt-in anchors into a wooden beam, the beam should be a solid and structurally sound piece of wood.
    • For wooden beams, a common recommendation is to use a solid beam with a minimum size of 4x4 inches (approximately 10x10 cm) or larger, depending on the expected load and the specific recommendations of the bolt-in anchor manufacturer.
  2. Load Capacity of Bolt-In Anchors:

    • Check the load capacity specifications provided by the manufacturer of the bolt-in anchors. This information will guide you in selecting a beam size that can safely support the expected load.
  3. Intended Use:

    • Consider the number of people who will be using the hammock simultaneously and any dynamic forces that may be applied. Larger beams may be necessary for heavier loads or multiple users.
  4. Professional Advice:

    • If you have any doubts about the appropriate beam size or the structural integrity of the installation, it is advisable to consult with a structural engineer or a professional with experience in load-bearing structures.

The safety and stability of your hammock setup depend on proper installation and adherence to recommended specifications. If in doubt, it's always best to seek professional advice to ensure the safety and stability of your hammock installation.

Sarah Bockstege (Fort Lauderdale, FL, US)

I love thIs hammock!! Live in Florida and the hammock is going great with the weather (it’s under a tree with lots of shade) and I bring it inside when it’s going to rain. It is so easy to hook up the hammock when you want to chill, very nice. I would definitely recommend this to friend and to family

Catharine McCracken (Rochester, NY, US)
As always...

The right equipment at the right price. Great company

Great hammock great hookup

We got the hammock and hooks for my sister in law’s 50 th birthday . It was finally warm enough for her to use it. The hardware was sturdy and easy to use. She loves the hammock. All pieces were delivered to her quickly!

Couldn't find it for less anywhere else

We used these to install our new hammock between two large trees at the cottage and will be using them for years to come.

Note: These are meant for permanent installation and were required for a hammock we purchased despite the note that 'hardware was included'

We take the hammock down when we are not there and hang it in seconds on these hooks when we get back.

Installing a hammock is usually not too complicated. However, the most common issue is deception. NOT with the product itself but the FIT!

We provide minimal dimensions for the specific product under the SPECS Tab.

Before purchasing a hammock or a stand, it is important to allow yourself 5 minutes to measure the space you have on your patio, between the trees or anywhere else.

Doing that with a measuring tape (and not using the good old eye guessing technique 😊) will allow to choose in accordance with the space you have and allowing for relaxation in no time when your order arrives!
