The 6 basic rules

What you should definitely consider before using a hammock

Hang up at knee height and remove objects underneath

The lowest point of the hammock should not be higher than knee height (see 4 rules for assembly). Make sure that there are no objects under the hammock.

Test resilience first!

Before you get into the hammock, you should lean on the hammock with your weight to see whether the knot and the suspension hold


Beware of belts and buttons!

Before getting in, check if buttons, zippers, or belts on the body could damage the fabric of the hammock. Take off your shoes.

Note the maximum weight

Note the max. load capacity of the hammock and more importantly the suspension. Note that not every building material or tree has the same load-bearing capacity

Never get in with your feet!

Especially when children are using the hammock: Never jump into the hammock and do not enter feet first.
Gently sit in the middle of the hammock to get in.

Do not get up or stick your head through the suspension ropes

Never try to get up in the hammock or stick your head through ropes. Parents should watch the children in the hammock
