great stand
Reviewed by tim from olympia, wa on Sunday, October 24, 2010
This is a great stand. Well engineered. The comment below about the poor instructions is difficult to understand. The instructions just has pictures but you can put it together without even looking. It is obvious how it comes together if you see a picture. It is heavy because it must be in orde... Read More

  • Good Stand
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lazy Retiree from Roslindale, MA on Sunday, May 13, 2018
    The package came quickly but the flimsy box was broken, as well as the plastic bag inside holding the small parts. Fortunately, all the various bits were there in a pile on our porch. A conscientious delivery guy I guess. Anyway, the stand was easily and clearly put together by me, a semi-fit 67 yo woman. It is sturdy and holds our hammock chair well although you can’t swing about because the spreader bumps the stand if you move too much. But no problem getting in and out. We have the hook height at 85”. Height is adjustable and could go 4” higher or 8” lower. Very happy with this stand.
  • Perfect Rest!
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Wilderness girl from Oregon on Tuesday, July 18, 2017
    This product has been improved since I bought the last one so that it looks nicer. Easy to assemble and strong. Works well! I ordered a second because we enjoyed the first so much.
  • Sturdy but flawed
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Automatic Mojo from Ilinois on Saturday, June 10, 2017
    The stand is sturdy and will support anyone that sits in the rope chair. However, the angle of the top piece does not give the rope chair sufficient room to turn much to the left or right. Takes some of the fun out of the hang.
  • Very sturdy and tall!
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Pumpkinjuice from Missouri on Thursday, March 23, 2017
    This is just perfect for the hammock chairs I have. It is adjustable so you can make it super tall or lower to the ground. It seems very sturdy, a small amount of swinging will not make it tilt. I would highly recommend this and it is a fantastic buy for this price.
  • more stable than it seems
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Julie from Colorado on Monday, September 26, 2016
    I was a little suspect and the directions aren't that great, but it is much more solid than I thought.

  • “Would this fit an ENO chair?”
    Asked by Momofnerm from Mn on 7/20/2017 10:23:37 AM
    • Wow, sorry but I do not know what an ENO chair is. The frame is just like in the illustration. When I sit in the basket type hammock, the cross bar does sometimes hit the upright bars. Feel free to send another question and I will do my best.

    • As long as it fits within the sizing parameters this item should work for most chairs of this style.

  • “If I set up this swing stand in a bedroom, how much floor space does it need?”
    Asked by selah from Michigan on 1/3/2016 3:16:04 PM
    • If you bedroom is large it may work, but not in an average size one. It does take up some space. It would be perfect in a loft. Mine is on the porch and I love it!

    Asked by Dyzzy Cyndy from Tuttle, OK on 2/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
    • It stands 80" high and has weight capacity of 250 lb. it could possibly be used a stand for a punching bag.

  • “What is the difference between this stand and the less expensive on that you offer?|Neither picture for either frame and none of the customer questions talk about being able to hang and use the footrest properly. Is that possible with either frame? And if so, how as I don't see a way to hang the foot rest.”
    Asked by looking to sleep in chair from NJ on 9/17/2010 12:00:00 AM
    • I just hang the footrest from the same spring I hang the chair (the instructions talk about an O ring, but the O ring is separate, not attached as pictured and I don't know how the heck to use it, but hanging the rope directly on the spring works fine...and so does hanging the footrest their.
      Answered on 10/2/2010 12:00:00 AM by tmf from buffalo ny
    • The footrest hangs from the top ring (the same ring the ropes for the chair are tied to) by a separate rope. You can use the footrest by adjusting the height to your desired place by shortening or lengthening the rope (using the knot at the ring). When not in use, the footrest is easily swung around in back of the chair.
