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.

材料

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
US$42.60

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。

construction

YATS-set-up

将每个支柱顶部的(2.5cm)孔中钻两个1,垂直间隔1(2.5cm),距顶部边缘的(2.5cm)1英寸)。

在支柱底部附近的(2.5厘米)孔中钻一个1,从底部边缘1英寸(2.5厘米)。

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).

SET-UP

  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.

记录下来

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.

在初始设置之后,我将连接到帖子的所有绳索留下。这允许下次更快地设置。

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.

    This is a testy reply! This would be a neat project!

    • Derek. says:

      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).

  2. Looks great and I will have to try this at the next Cub and Family Weekend. Thank You Good Sir

    • Derek. says:

      我喜欢三人吊床的原因之一是因为它在侦察营训练中工作得很好。回到弗吉尼亚州,我们所有的营地都在大田里举行,每个部队和包装(在Webelos周末)被分配了一个情节。在检查期间,这种立场令人印象深刻的展示,吸引了一群人群。

  3. Lilprincess says:

    A test reply, but last year we did this for our three boys. A great set up!

    在佐治亚州,如果你能把那根木桩埋在地上将近3英尺,你就再也拿不出来了。你院子的永久部分。

  6. 比尔 says:

    Made this today with two scouts. Was a great easy project.
    大约一个小时从家庭仓库到吊床架。
    My Suggestions….
    将所有绳索切成尺寸。长长的长度使其太空。两个单独的底部绳索。
    Amsteel ......用融合矿。太多的伸展(我的220磅可能没有多少帮助)。

    • 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.

    • 比尔 says:

      我现在已经去了绳索的骡子。1800#实力。而且没有伸展。

  7. Brigham says:

    嗨,
    我想知道你用来将绳索连接到杆子和赌注的类型的结。

    • 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.

      我相信,这个设计上的小变化意味着减少了裁剪和打结,以及一个更安全的支架。如果可以的话,我可以把照片贴出来。

  9. john says:

    德里克,
    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.

      下垂支柱和线条的最大因素是您使用的绳索类型。我提供了我使用的东西,多绳子,但它是弹性的,特别是当你用少数人加载它时。这可以使支架弯曲一点。我通常必须坐在摊位上,然后重新收紧绳索几次伸出伸展。

      然而,它并不理想的那条绳子。我应该更新说明并推荐(如果我还没有)其他类型的绳索,那么易于摇摆。我的一位朋友们拿出了一只AMSteel,这不会有这些问题。

      • Chris says:

        德里克,
        顶绳的作用是什么?为什么60°最佳?

        • 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. says:

          这是一种奇怪的形状,可以完全覆盖,而不会拼接你自己的篷布。我看到一个人占据了一个大的篷布(也许20×20)并将其居中在支柱上,并使用中心杆将雨水放在中心汇集。然而,它不会完美地拉下两侧。如果您想要草图/模板,我可以设计和上传插图?

          • 汤姆C says:

            We use two of these frames with our Scout troop on our Annual Camp every year with Poly rope, we accept that we will nee to retighten 2 to 3 times during the week.
            至于庇护所,我们将标准的3×3 SIL尼龙塔隆耳带用于每个吊床的金刚石形成,这导致一个非常冷的形成,其中它们各自在中心的重叠形式上附着在地面上。

          • Derek. says:

            听起来很棒!

  10. 将在本周末建立其中一个幼童侦察舞厅。是尺寸的大小(2“x 3”到8英尺)对设计至关重要?我可以使用8英尺长的2x4s吗?

    • Derek. says:

      您可以根据需要使用2x4s或其他硬件。这正是我用过的。他们的立场,我的基础上我的设计,使用更大的梁作为支柱。我想找些轻便便携的东西在童子军营地使用。请分享你在露营地的设置照片!我很想看看他们。

    • 比尔 says:

      我用了2×4的。只要检查一下绳子的长度。我觉得它们很长。我不得不缩短。

  11. 上尉。道格 says:

    Derek.first let me thank you for this sight and your book both are fantastic.
    我只是在我的后院建了一个,以测试即将到来的童子军营地…非常酷,我体重约255,一旦调整,它根本不动。。
    A couple of questions.
    你能告诉我脚应该是从中心点而且彼此之间的距离......我似乎有很多绳索留在底座(绿色)绳索上。
    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…

    • 上尉。道格 says:

      Derek.
      无视我的问题,我刚刚发现绳索在不同的视线上的长度......我自己和2个孩子挂在后院,它永远不会萌芽......

    • Derek. says:

      我很乐意看到你成品架的一些照片。我很高兴为你工作!

  12. 吉姆博格斯 says:

    如果你在中间放了一个中心帖子,你还能在中心挂三个吊床吗?

    • 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.

  13. 布瑞恩 says:

    这种设计可以打开,允许4人(足以让我的全家人)吗?我通过添加第四螺柱假设。谢谢。

    • Derek. says:

      可能吧。三角形更坚固,平衡性更好,尤其是当负载不相等时。这是值得尝试的,但可能有更好的解决方案。占地面积也会更大。我可能会用一个改进过的海龟/狗看台,在每个顶点下用三脚架捆绑一个正方形。

  14. 瑞安泰勒 says:

    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?
    *此外,为了适合我的车内,我可以将支柱切割成两个4.5英尺的部分并将它们栓在一起吗?

    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.

      如果是我,我会把三个2x4s绑在我的车上。如果你想建造什么东西,我会请教工程师。

  15. 保罗 says:

    这是一个伟大的吉格舞,德里克!这个周末我只做了一个支柱,用聚乙烯绳把它系在晾衣绳上。非常坚固!我有个问题要问你。有什么原因不能用一根绳子(66英尺)做底部和侧面的绳子?你可以在绳子中间的支柱顶部绑一个云雀的头,然后把钢筋的两边都绕着,然后沿着支柱底部的某个地方系上一个卡车司机的挂钩。我将在本周完成stand(建造另外两个支柱),并且可能会尝试这个,除非你反对。

    • 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:

    我最近为纽约北部的一个音乐节mysteryland做了一个吊床,它太棒了。我们把它放在我的后院前,是为了测量绳子,确保一切顺利。我们对钢筋做了一些调整。我们有一些困难,以防止绳索滑到钢筋,所以我在我的她在我的她的东西,我们可以用来作为一个塞子,我唯一能找到的东西是一些夹子和软管夹。我们拧紧了钢筋上3/4的夹钳,并从每根钢筋上的绳索上夹到夹钳下方,以防止其滑动或使绳索摩擦夹钳的半锋利部分。这使得设置比以前更容易了。因为绳子已经量好了,所以我们到了音乐节,最多也就花了10分钟把整件事摆好。它存活了4天,得到了很多人的称赞。我们把台球面放在木桩上以避免任何伤害,我们在木桩中间放了一个帐篷,这样我们就可以不受数量限制了空间。那个因为第二天下了大雨,衣服上的线也翻了一番。关于这个装置,我只能说得很好,唯一遗憾的是我没有得到戒指,因为我可以看到顶部绳索上的轻微磨损,只是人们不断地上下。非常感谢你的计划!如果你喜欢的话,我有几张照片!

    • 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:

        网站不允许我在这里发布图片,但我会尝试通过电子邮件发送。钢筋的角度可能不好,所以我下次一定要试试,肯定会投资一些环。我看到经常上下的人在最上面的绳子上磨损最严重

  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:

        对于许多人,我建议建立一系列的三脚架基地与脊杆连接。它很容易扩展而且非常坚固。如果你住的地方离竹子林很近,它们就可以做成便宜又结实的竹竿。

        • 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:

            我想。你可能不得不抨击家伙,因为竹子里的钻孔可能没有结构上的声音。

        • 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:

    支柱之间的长度是多少?我的吊床需要超过12英尺才能正确悬挂。

    • 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).
    我用的绳子太短,没法爬到支撑杆的上部。我把绳子往上拉的方向。当你在凌晨1:30落地时,你会很粗鲁地醒来。
    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:

    有人计算过排队的长度吗?只是好奇而已。除了在钢筋上设置更陡的角度,是否有人做了任何事情来保持钢筋上的环?

    我用麻绳做了3根14英尺长的线作为我的测量棒来放置木桩。在中间临时放了一根木桩作为我的中心柱,从那里开始测量。那很简单。

    非常有趣。

    • 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?

    对于立柱,我见过2x3s和2x4s。小的够3个成人用吗?我真的要大一点的吗?

    Treated or untreated wood or does it matter?

    边线和底线是1条线还是2条更好?

    • 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.

  26. […]是一个很好的选择,如果你有三个吊床,你想挂在一起,包括2个人便携式吊床。这种设计将压缩力通过支柱[…]

  27. 丰富的J. says:

    德里克,

    爱练架 - 一个问题(如果我通过评论错过了它,请原谅我):它会持有一个人,而另外两个吊床是空的吗?(像午睡一样思考,或者如果我的幼崽在半夜撤退到帐篷。)

    Thanks for all you do!

    • Derek. says:

      是。这个立场只有一个人抱着很好。只是注意,原来的计划要求使用一些廉价的多绳索。它有效,它保持成本,但它需要将松弛从中拉出。一旦发生这种情况,它会持久。一些人注意到那些绳索上的伸展,这就是正在发生的事情。一旦绳索伸长并拉动,它们就不会具有相同的拉伸问题。也就是说,有些人已经投入了较小的,更轻,更强的绳索或绳索。

  28. […] for sure if our camp would be near any water or even seasonal washes, so I planned on bringing my 3-person hammock stand just in case. It turned out that the camp was near a large wash that has many large trees along […]

  29. Tim says:

    德里克,

    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.

    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.

  32. 布莱恩斯图尔特 says:

    I’m about to make one of these. I just ordered a 600′ roll of Amsteel blue. I was thinking about the anchor points for my hammock (Hennessey Explorer Deluxe) and was trying to figure out the hight so my hammock hangs right. Guess I’ll just have to play with it at first. I’ll take pics and get them to you. Thanks Derek

    • Derek. says:

      Hmm. I don’t think the struts are designed to be pulled in two opposing directions. It may compromise the tensegrity.

    这看起来很酷很容易做…我在想…8'的支柱对我的吉普车来说有点大,而且,我不需要我的吊床那么高…你能缩小整个东西,使支柱6'…仍然保持60°的角度,这将使顶部离地5'左右,这将是足够高的吊床。那会对我的六边形有什么影响?实际上,它可能不再是一个合适的六边形了,是吗?你知道数学会是什么样的吗?还有什么东西我遗漏了,会导致较短的支柱不起作用吗?

    thanks,

    ok… i created one of these… i love it. i went with 7′ post cause they fit better in my jeep. after doing a whole bunch of math and setting this up in our park about 4 times (our backyard doesn’t have the space) with various hexagons (both irregular and equilateral), i finally just tried the 14′ deal of the original and it worked perfectly…

    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….

  42. Dean says:

    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.

    谢谢!

    • Derek. says:

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

  43. 维拉 says:

    德里克,thanks so much for posting this!

    I just purchased a Tentsile Trillium hammock and had the most wonderful time using it this past weekend.

    我想知道如何把它带到燃烧人-你认为这个设置也可以与帐篷吊床一起使用吗?吊床最大可容纳880磅(约4-5人)。

    • 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.

    很好的指示,我为我的队伍做了这个夏天为期一周的夏令营。我喜欢这个设计,它也教童子军一些重要的结结,使一个相当酷的营地小工具。两个问题:对于这样的装置,你认为最大重量限制是多少。我也选择了2X4,并使用了3/8聚乙烯绳,额定值为200磅。只是想知道是否有人有三个大尺寸成人(250-300磅)在所有三个方面和它举行?第二个问题,对于最上面的绳子,只是想知道是否有人对穿过孔的绳子做了什么不同的事情,担心它会随着时间的推移而磨损,考虑在那里放一根PVC管,边缘用砂纸打磨过,但是想知道有没有人有过这样的经历?又一次,好主意。我的邻居对我的安排很感兴趣,他认为这样做行不通…

    • 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:

    3个2x4s的底部所形成的小三角形有多小吗?如果你把这个三角形做得尽可能小,你能把半径从14'减小吗?我正在尝试采用类似的设计,占地面积更小。还有,吊床的锚点彼此相距多远?

  46. 约翰 says:

    所以这些可能是愚蠢的问题,但我试图购买我需要在此处运行的材料所以在这里。
    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?
    另外,是3英尺的钢筋赌注吗?只是考虑将这些东西驾驶到地上,这个亚利桑那州土壤很难,并不期待这一点。你能和那些更短吗?
    Anyhow, thanks for the help

    • Derek.Hansen says:

      当我拿起木头和赌注时,我从家庭仓库中拿起了编织的多绳索。由于您放在支柱上的紧张局势,较长的钢筋赌注很重要。我用一个小槌驾驶赌注。我也住在亚利桑那州!它可能很艰难,但在我们最后一次旅行到鲍威尔湖,即使是硬土,也很重要。钢筋的直径较小的槌子真的有助于它更容易地进入地面。我还推荐一对锁定钳子,以拉动扭曲并在完成后拉出钢筋。

  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.

    这是a photo of me right after setting up ->https://www.instagram.com/p/Bj1BL_0hsgv

    帮助我的一件事是先收紧底部绳索,帮助保持支柱底部处于正确位置。然后我在最上面的绳子上留下了很多松弛的地方。在把直道抬高到离地面略大于82英寸(60度的正确长度)后,我把它们收紧。工作很好,但肯定尝试了一些尝试和一些尝试和错误。

  50. Tony says:

    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.
