I have been wanting to add a free-standing hammock hanger to my backyard to enjoy the nice fall weather and now that the fall season is here, I decided to start researching options. I have an ENO DoubleNest Hammock that is approximately 10 feet in length. When I saw some of the prices of the ones available online that would fit my hammock I thought they were a bit expensive, or at least more than I was willing to spend.

I probably could have modified my hammock to fit, but they weren’t meeting my footprint constraints anyway. I wanted something with a very small footprint since I have a small area to work with and didn’t want to have to step over a large fixture frequently. I also wanted the hammock to be very easy to install and remove from the hanger since I wasn’t planning to leave it up continually to avoid weather and sun damage.
