这个Byer of Maine Paradiso Double Hammock on the shores of Lake Powell, Arizona.

Back in 2010, I published some instructions for making a 3-person hammock stand on HammockForums.net. I’ve updated the illustrations and information and am posting it here for easier access.

I’ve spent a lot of time and money trying to find a great hammock stand for my tree-less backyard and at events (e.g. car camping, music festivals, Boy Scout camporees) when or where trees are not available. Having a stand that travels well (portable), is easy to assemble, and doesn’t cost a fortune are also bonuses.

Enter the 3-person hammock stand.

This is not my own design, but it is inspired from a tensegrity stand used during the1998年燃烧的人活动.Seeing the hammock between the struts was revalatory, so I had to try it out. I purchased everything at Home Depot for under $40, well under the “too expensive” radar[1. This is a great price, considering most commercial stands range anywhere from $60 to $200 or more]. Construction was fairly easy, but did require a drill and a few drill bits for the holes.


QTY 描述 单位成本(EST。) Total (est.)
2 × 3 × 8 studs (the struts) $1.50 $4.50
6 三ft (1 m) rebar (the stakes) $1.35 8.10美元
1 2英尺×0.5英寸(61×1.25cm)硬木销钉(钉子) $3.00 $3.00
6 2英寸(5厘米)钢O形圈或钢结构者(以最大限度地减少赌注磨损) $3.00 $3.00
〜250英尺(76米) 绳索/线(我在不同颜色的不同颜色中购买了3/8(30.5米)的3/8(30.5米),共计300英尺(92米) $ 8.00 $ 24.00

注意:而不是多绳子,我发现伸展一点,你可以使用一些7/64 Amsteel.对于增加的强度,重量和散装,并且几乎没有伸展。考虑使用6焊接钢O形圈(或爬升额定的山册),以保护绳索免受钢筋的磨损。





After building the stand, I realized I needed better anchor points for the hammock so I drilled a hole (1/2 in/13 mm) near the two top holes where I placed a 4 in (10 cm) dowel. You can add anchor points further down the strut to better accommodate your hammock. I ended up adding a second anchor point at 4.5 ft (137 cm) from the bottom of the strut.

Rope Assembly

这个top ropeis one line, 50 ft (15.25 m) in length. Once set-up, it creates a triangle with approximately 14 ft (4.3 m) sides.

Cut 3bottom ropesat 33 ft (10 m) each (e.g., cut a 100 ft (30 m) line in thirds).

Cut 3side ropesat 33 ft (10 m) each (e.g., cut a 100 ft (30 m) line in thirds).


  1. Set up the stakes in a hexagon shape. The radius should be 14 ft (4.3 m). The easiest way to do this is to have two 14 ft (4.3 m) strings. From the center point, measure out for your first stake point with the first string. From there, use the second string from the first stake and the string from the center point to determine the next stake point. Use this pattern to determine the six stake points.
  2. Tie off the side and bottom ropes. Middle the ropes and insert the bight through the bottom or second-to-top hole respectively and tie aLark’s Head knot安全。
  3. 将顶部绳索穿过顶部孔。拉绳子拿起松弛,支架会上升。我在一端咬了一个图8,并用它用作锚点来领带Trucker’s hitchto get the structure taut.

注意:这个inexpensive poly rope that I list and use on this stand often needs to be set or pulled stiff when you first get it. Some folks have complained that the rope stretches, and that seems to be the case on the first few uses as the rope is getting pulled stiff. Basically, the rope is only loosely braided and must be tightened up. Once this occurs, the line won’t stretch as significantly. I’ve made several stands using the same inexpensive materials and I take about 15-30 minutes tightening up the top and side ropes until all the fibers are pulled tight. The Trucker’s hitch really helps with that process.

I made some minor tweaking in the knots to make sure the posts were at a near 60-degree angle.


This hammock stand comes down quickly once you loosen the Trucker’s hitch. With the top rope loosened, the rest of the ropes are easily unhooked from the rebar stakes.


Getting the rebar stakes out is the hardest part, depending on the ground conditions. Use a pair of副抓地锁钳to twist the stake around and then it easily comes out of the ground.

      It’s fun! In my backyard, we built a small fire in the middle and enjoyed resting in our hammocks while enjoying the warmth (be careful not to make it TOO big or risk a melt-down).

    • Derek. says:

      Great suggestions, Bill. I’m glad the designed worked. Paul at AHE recently made one with Amsteel 7/64 with success. I’m going to pick me up some Amsteel and upgrade my stand soon.

    • Derek. says:

      I list the knots and techniques under the “setup” section.

      For the bottom rope you can tie figure-8 on a bight on both ends and leave them alone. The side struts can require some adjustment depending on what rope you use, so using an adjustable knot like a taut line hitch or truckers hitch is nice. After I set mine up the first time I left the side and bottom ropes attached, which makes setup faster.

  8. 布赖恩 says:

    Used your instructions here and in your book to make one this weekend. After a little trial and error adjusting rope lengths and strut distances, I successfully hung two hammocks and enjoyed a Sunday afternoon hang with my brother-in-law. I agree with you and Bill on the cordage suggestions. Amsteel would be ideal, but poly rope is cheap and works. I used a poly blend but it is very stretchy. Also, I had to use a trucker’s hitch, rather than two half hitches, on the side ropes, because the two half hitches kept slipping when I entered the hammock. Currently, I’m not using the anchor point pegs, rather I’m just wrapping my suspension straps multiple times around the struts. Do the pegs add any benefit other than convenience (i.e. safety)? Also, thanks for suggesting the different types of knots you used. Very helpful.

    • Derek. says:

      Thanks Bryan! I made a new stand last month for my brother. It was an interesting exercise to make another one and I seeing what changes/updates I could make. The steel O-rings around the rebar stakes really worked well. We didn’t add the anchor pegs/dowels on the struts at all — just wrapping the webbing around the posts worked well enough. It’s more of a convenience factor. On my stand, I had adjustable Whoopie Slings that wrapped around the posts and pegs, making it easy on/off.

      保利绳是很有弹性的。当我们第一次设置up his stand we had to adjust every strut at least 3 times Like you, I had trucker’s hitches on all the vertical cables and the top cable. Once it was ratcheted down, it worked great and we had a nice time relaxing.

    • Derek. says:

      Oh, I should also mention the different knots we used. For the side ropes (yellow), instead of 6 different cords, I used 3. I tied a Lark’s Head through the wood strut and then threaded the working ends through the steel O-rings that were around the rebar stakes. In this way, I could tie Trucker’s Hitches on the lines easily. The Lark’s Head worked great and didn’t slip.


  9. john says:

    We set this stand up at the Ommegang beer festival last month and I have 2 questions. How important is the 60 degree angle and should the top rope remain taut when the stand is weighted. We found that the top of the 2x4s moved toward the middle of the stand when weighted. No failures or falls but that played havoc with our tarps and ridge lines. Any thoughts?

    • Derek. says:

      这个60-degree angle on the struts is optimal for stress reduction and to help ensure that the strut receives the most compressive forces. However, it’s an approximate, so you can be flexible.



      • Chris says:


        • Derek. says:

          这个top rope is absolutely essential. Without it, the stand won’t stand up. The top rope keeps all the struts together by keeping tension on all the struts.

          What you are attempting to create is an equilateral triangular pyramid, or tetrahedron. With all the angles at 60-degrees, it forms a very strong structure, equalizing the forces across all components. When you change the angles of the struts, you could compromise the effectiveness of the compression, so that the struts receive some bending forces (that could be bad).

      • David Todd says:

        我已经做了很多次这个设计,并在我居住的夏威夷使用过,我也在Burning man做过。很好,很喜欢,但问题总是归结到封面。我用过床单,但它们不是防雨的,我用过防水布,但是它们的尺寸不合适,而且风很大,我也不能让雨水从中间倾倒。我正在尝试设计一个覆盖所有三个吊床和中间区域的覆盖物,以保持区域干燥。我想在中间用一根杆子,但还是需要设计一个好的盖子。有什么想法吗

    Derek.first let me thank you for this sight and your book both are fantastic.
    A couple of questions.
    And a comment….I put a truckers hitch on each of the Yellow ropes to get some leverage on tightening them. I did an eye splice on the tops of the yellow ropes as well as one end of the blue…

    • Derek. says:

      First, I don’t think the distances will be long enough. Second, that center post would need to be anchored to the ground somehow, or if it was a post cemented deep in the ground. Otherwise, I don’t believe it would work.

    Derek,Phanomenal Setup!我们计划在今年在Bonnaroo音乐和艺术节上使用这些这些。对Yah有几个问题:

    *Would it be better to cut the struts on an angle at the bottom so they sit flush with the ground?

    See Image:http://i.imgur.com/yEEvSVS.png

    • Derek. says:

      Thanks Ryan. There is no need to cut the struts. The struts are taking compressive forces, driving them into the ground. As to cutting the struts in half and using a coupler, my inner risk meter begins to rise. The segments introduce a weak point that may fail. On this stand, since the load is not symmetric, the struts get pulled at different angles, which will stress those joints.


  15. 保罗 says:


    • Derek. says:

      If I understand correctly, the answer is yes. I need to update this post because the last two stands I’ve made were simplified a little. For each strut I used a single line for the side and bottom ropes and middled them and used a larks head knot to attach to the strut. I also use steel rings on the rebar to prevent abrasion. Truckers hitch to tighten.

  16. Celly says:

    狄瑞克:这看起来有趣。它看起来像大多数of your hammocks are hanging a fair distance from the top of the struts. Has anyone ever asked you about using shorter struts? Like maybe 7 foot or 6 foot struts? Presumably, you could move your ground anchors in a little (maybe closer to 12 or 13 feet rather than 14 feet) and reduce the lengths of the side and bottom ropes. I haven’t done the math, but presumably, if you keep the struts in the same locations, but just lop a foot or two off the top, you should be able to keep the angles all the same by moving the ground anchors in toward the center by a corresponding distance (and shortening the ropes correspondingly).

    Have you had any issues with abrasion on the top rope? I know you mentioned others using 7/64 Amsteel. It would seem like Amsteel (and other rope) would get torn up every time you raised or lowered this stand. Are you sanding out the top holes? I’m wondering if an eye bolt with lag screw threads (drilled into the “inner” side or the top end of the strut) would relieve the abrasion issue (if it is an issue).

    • Derek. says:

      无线电话:您可以构建短圣站在一起ruts and tendons. The advantage (perhaps) of what I’m illustrating is how little construction and extra hardware is needed. I think to avoid abrasion on the top strut I would recommend using some webbing loops and carabiners on each strut that the top rope is threaded through. There are lots of ways to spice it up and customize it

      • john says:

        for mine, i just put a little section of vinyl hose in the holes at the top which seems to work… it also makes it easier to pull the whole thing up and the rope has less trouble pulling through the holes.

  17. Megan says:


    • Derek. says:

      Awesome!! Yes, I’d love to see some photos. Curious, did you angle the rebar stakes away from the posts at an angle? I’ve never had slippage issues like you describe when I do this. The rings help a lot. Did you also tie a larks head at the strut on both the side and bottom ropes?

      • Megan says:


  18. Ian says:

    what length should the side ropes be? Fiddling around with rolling hitches we found that 9′ bottom and 10′ sides seemed to work best, but with poly rope we got some slippage under load. I think figure 8 knots to a set side might be best and do all the tension on the top rope. (logically I would think 8′ would be the right size for each of the outer ropes but this doesn’t seem to give the right 60 degree angle.)

  19. says:

    Someone mentioned modifying this for 4 people, but I am wondering about 5. Has anyone given that a try? I this would make a great Webelos project/camp-site!

    • says:

      After thinking about this for a little while it seems that the equilateral triangles are pretty key to this. That said, what if you used two of these together to provide for a 6-person hang?

      • Derek. says:


        • says:

          That makes sense, Derek. I guess I was really liking the coolness factor of this set-up, so maybe I’ll do both. By the way, I happen to live in southeastern Louisiana and we have a lot of Bamboo down here. Do you think I could swap out the 2×3 boards with some 3″ diameter bamboo?

          • Derek. says:


        • 约翰Sanders says:

          德里克,I built this last year and have upgraded this year to amsteel. I made adjustable loops on either end of thirty feet of amsteel and use a larkshead at the middle for the bottom ropes and side ropes. I think those are too long (or my adjustable loops are too short). When tightened up what does the length of these ropes end up at. Any suggestion for tensioning the top rope with amsteel. Does a trucker’s hitch still make sense? Or would an adjustable loop (giant whoopie sling) make sense? With the poly rope I used last year everything stretched and we had to keep adjusting the whole set up.

          • Derek. says:

            I haven’t done the stand with Amsteel, but I want to. I think big Whoopie Slings would probably work, but you could probably get away with a trucker’s hitch. Amsteel is notoriously slippery, so test first.

  20. 约翰Sanders says:

    德里克,I think I solved the bottom and side rope issue and the stand set up nicely today. Still worried about tensioning the top rope but I might try a couple different options and practice my trucker’s hitch.

  21. Clark Griswold says:


    • Derek. says:

      Twelve feet? You must he hanging a mayan! Awesome. The length of the stand can be adjusted by lengthening the inner triangle. You’ll have to make some new calculations, but it will work.

  22. 比尔·惠特尔西 says:

    I wanted to report my first failure with this stake and support pole system. Instead of using the three person stand set up, I used on support pole, and a tree for the other side (due to no good hanging trees).
    To avoid this mistake: Use longer support lines and lay your steaks back a little. Maybe even tie a knot on the stake to make the slide up harder.

  23. Josh says:

    Built my stand today. Went pretty well. My teenage daughter helped me lay out all the lines and pull it all together and tie the knots. Bonding experience. Laid in it for a moment that spring and boom. One of my rings slipped off and one support came crashing down. Reset the rebar with a steeper angle and all is well. got back in and all was well again.

  24. Josh says:




    • Derek. says:

      I’m glad it is working for you! The angles on the struts should be about 60 degrees, making a equilateral triangle/pyramid shape. The ropes going down angle out a little further as they descend to the rebar. if you have钢筋设置为60度以上,你应该不会有戒指滑动的问题。上一次旅行,我有两个摊位同时去,而不是戒指,我使用那些廉价的钢制钩环,通常与吊床。他们工作也很好,当我转身的时候握得很好,所以小的一边在钢筋上。

      • Josh says:

        Great idea on those inexpensive carabiners and the smaller end on the rebar. Would help the slipping. But I will do better on the 60 degree angle so my steel rings don’t slip off.

  25. 马伦 says:

    Well Derek, it’s time for Y.A.T.S., Yet Another Tensegrity Stand, 3 Person Hammock Stand in Texas and I have some questions.

    What strength line should be used? Does the poly rope do the job or should I hold out and order some Amsteel?

    这个re are varying thicknesses/diameters of 3’ rebar, in this case is one size better than another?


    Treated or untreated wood or does it matter?


    • Derek. says:

      Mike! Great to see you here. I’ve built a few YATS now, and I’ve done them all with the inexpensive stuff and they work great. Poly rope from Home Depot, 2x3s, and 3′ rebar. I have added the steel O-rings or steel carabiners to reduce the wear on the poly rope when attached to the rebar. I’ve loaded these stands up with three adults and had no issues. However, if I wanted to provide extra security, getting 2x4s and better rope is not a bad idea. The real problem with the poly rope is that it hasn’t been set, so what some folks observe as “stretching” is just the slack being taken out of the rope once a load is applied. I usually take a few extra minutes to work the rope and tighten it over and over to get the stretch out, especially on the side and top ropes. The bottom ropes don’t do a whole lot when the load is applied.

      Make sure you secure the side ropes. At first I cut and tied them individually, but then I found that I could use 1 rope length, middle it, and tie a simple Lark’s Head knot through the hole and it worked well. I can’t vouch for every style of rope if slippage may occur. I think I had one reader complain of slippage on the side ropes which made the structure topple a little. It is essential that those side ropes are static.

      This summer I built two stands and used them at Lake Powell on the sand. I just used the stock materials I have listed and they held rock solid. The only downside was that we had horrific winds and I wasn’t prepared with tarps and tie-outs to match the ferocity of the gales.

  29. Tim says:


    Have you or anyone you know tried to hand multiple hammocks on a single side of the structure? I am envisioning 2 “eno” style hammocks on each side of the triangle, one strung up just a few feet above the other, for 6 total hammocks. Given that I use properly weight-rated ropes or amsteel, do you think that could work (with the use of a step stool or ladder to enter and exit the “top bunk” hammocks.

  30. N says:

    Did anyone have the experience of the struts snapping when two or more of the hammocks were occupied by adults?

  31. Doug says:

    Just tried this out at a Beaver Colony camp using 2.5mm 12 Strand Dyneema SK78 for the side and bottom guys, and 5mm for the top. Used 90mm 43mm 2.4m treated timber. Worked really well but getting the tension was not easy but a couple of carabiners and prussek loops to create a 3:1 winch affair worked a treat.

    Need to work on getting the base distances optimal as my hang angle was a bit too extreme due to the length of the hammock.

    one other thing i did was have a local welding shop create a 10″ pipe with a piece of still welded on the top as a cap. i put this over each rebar to keep the rebar from vibrating while i drive it in. putting the stakes up goes super-easy with this thing. i don’t see how to post a picture but it is a really simple tool to make….

    德里克,this is an awesome design and I’m planning in using it this weekend. I’m adjusting it to use four 2x4s so I can hang four hammocks. My question is, if you’re aiming for equilateral triangles, how does that work with 14′ ropes but only 8′ struts? I guess I’m just trying figure out how long the bottom and side ropes should be.


    • Derek. says:

      Hmm. My measurements may be off on the illustration, but in practice, the longer rope allows for adjustments.

    • Derek. says:

      我不确定站工作with the type of forces used by the Tentsile platform. They are essentially a trio of slacklines, so the pressure exerted would likely be more than the system can handle.

    • dejoha says:

      It does seem quite magical once it is set up. I’m glad it’s working for you! I have two stands I use often and I’ve had all three hammock positions taken up by grown men and been fine. The cheaper rope holds okay, but if I were to be on the safe side, I might opt for much stronger 1/8″ Amsteel/Dyneema cordage instead. Using Whoopie Slings to adjust the sides would also make it easier to set up and adjust. I’ve added extra hardware in places to reduce abrasion.

  45. Josh says:


  46. 约翰 says:

    What type of rope did you use? I’ve finding several different types of poly rope (diamond braided, hollow, twisted, etc), which kind did you use exactly and does the working load of the rope matter much?
    Anyhow, thanks for the help

  47. JC says:

    Hi Derek, can you give more details on the tarp sizes you recommend for getting max shade out of this structure? I’m kind of confused by the diagrams. Thanks for the amazing guide!

    • Derek.Hansen says:

      Sorry for the confusion! It’s really simple, and a basic square tarp is actually the best! A 9×9 or 10×10 would be perfect, either square or turned as a diamond like I show in the illustration.

  48. 萨姆 says:

    非常感谢这个设计,和保持on answering questions about it after all these years! I’m working to put one of these stands together for a week-long desert camping event this fall, and the one place I’m running into confusion with this design is in the question of equilateral triangles. 60° angles provide for the most strength and stability, but based on the design it looks like there are some angles that are at 60° — the wood struts where they meet the ground, the corners in the top rope — and others that can’t possibly be 60° angles because of a difference in the lengths of the sides of the triangles.

    For the ground and side ropes to create an equilateral triangle with 60° angles, each of the sides created by the wood and ropes would need to be the same length, so theoretically the rebar should be no more than 8′ apart, to match the length of the wood. Placing the rebar stakes 14′ from each other means that those triangles won’t be equilateral, even if the wood makes a 60° angle with the ground. The pyramid shape created by the wood+ground rope+side rope would have to be lopsided, not a perfect tetrahedron.

    Am I misunderstanding something about the design? Or are 60° angles only important in a couple of key areas (where wood meets ground, the top rope)? Is the 14′ measurement important, or just designed to give enough space to hang hammocks between the wood struts? Thanks in advance, and thank you again for sharing this wonderful idea with the internet!

    • Derek.Hansen says:

      你是正确的 - 三角形不是等边的。它更像是一个比现实的理想或近似。支柱在那个角度更为重要。您可以调整设计以使支柱更短,或者使绳索更长。瞄准等边的瞄准保持最小,使负载平衡更好,但在现实生活中,有很多欺骗。14英尺测量也是可以调整的近似。它允许使用长长吊床和拖车,但可以在某种程度上缩短它。照片显示吊床如何适合。

  49. JC says:

    I did it! I made this stand a week or two ago and can’t wait to bring it to the burn this year. Thank you so much for the design and sharing you thoughts and answering questions.

    Thanks so much for this how-to! We did this setup at Hulaween this year and it worked perfectly. We did a lot of testing beforehand, and settled on cut and spliced amsteel 7/64 for the rope. I can give more details to folks that want it, but we found the weakest part of our system was the rebar (we used 4 foot in relatively sandy soil) and as the rebar shifted naturally, we would just pull slack out of the top rope. In our tests, we loaded 4 adults on the frame with no problem including a double hang on one side with nothing else loaded.

    Our site also had a nicely placed tree that we used to add a fourth hammock to the mix, coming off of one of the 2x4s.

    To top things off, I sewed up a Silnylon triangle shaped tarp (~435 square feet) that kept off the sun and rain.
