suspension for backyard hang on 07/09/2012 22:57:20 MDT Print View

ok

first off im really not a hammock camper however

i have a grand trunk ultralight hammock that i would like to hang in my back yard for

early morning and late evening hanging and just relaxing outdoors

problem is the only place i have to hang it is in between two 4 inch diameter steel poles that support my patio cover in my back yard so what i need is some advice for the best suspension or straps to attach to the round steel poles without them slipping
and me hitting the concrete back first

im good with something home made or something cheap from harbor freight tools or the wal mart stores if they carry anything that might work for this kind of thing

any suggestions are welcome

thanks guys

kevin

4 inch steel poles sound like pipe to me. Do a pipe hitch really snug and it will hold you up without any hardware.
