First, the box of the hammock and stand arrived in terrible shape. Second, the hammock stand was missing one Caribbean and one eye bolt/nut/washer. After going to the local hardware store to purchase the needed items, I was finally able to test of the hammock. I am 6'1", 165 lbs. When sitting in the hammock for the first time, I sunk all the way to the floor (deck). I was still touching the ground after tightening the hammock as much as possible. This was a terrible purchase. As an aside, the stand for the hammock is truly huge. It is necessary to have 8-10 feet of open space available for the hammock stand.

3 strikes om this guy. Not only did it arrive so heavy the box was torn apart but when my husband went to set it up (anniversary gift for me), the parts were not soldered enough to go together so we filed metal only to find out then they gave us 2 extra A poles and no B poles. We had to then take it back apart and haul it to the store (lucky we have one here).

We got this so we could use our travel hammock in our yard. We don't have enough suitable trees to hang it otherwise, so this is great for reading on the weekends! Very easy to put together - we don't leave it up permanently - and feels very sturdy.
Theoretically, it should. It comes with attachment hardware that is pretty adaptable. The flex in the frame's arms is enough that you lose about a foot of length when an average-sized adult lays in the hammock. We had a hard time stretching a rope hammock tight enough so that it would not sag to the ground with just one person in it. The give does not matter as much with a cloth hammock, but stretch it as tight as you can before climbing in!

The spigot system describes the way the pipe-like framing fits together with a spigot inserted into a bell or hub. One piece is expanded and / or another piece contracted so they fit one inside another.
