Easy set up and very sturdy!
We love this stand! I ordered it for my wife's 40th birthday along with a Trunktech double. After she opened her presents, we quickly and easily set up the stand, and hung the hammock... right there in the living room. It stayed there for almost a week. Suffice it to say, there have been more than a couple of naps taken and movies watched from the hammock. It is outside now, and getting used well out there too.
I have purchased other hammock stands that claimed to be compatible with gathered-end hammocks. Every one I have tried has either been too low, too long, too short, or in some other way unsuitable for the style of hammock that I love so much. As a last ditch effort I purchased the Hangout Hammock Stand from Grand Trunk. To my eternal delight it arrived quickly, set up easily, and any one of my many hammocks will hang perfectly from it!! It is sturdy and looks nice, can be used inside or outdoors, and is portable. I am so glad to finally have a stand that works for my camping-style hammocks. I recommend this product to anyone who suffers from a naked, treeless yard!
