Hanging Hammock Tip
Rope hammocks will stretch during the first few uses. Keep this in mind when hanging your new hammock. See How to Hang a Hammock.
If you entertain the idea of R & R in a hammock, but do not like the swinging movement, the 4 point hammock offers an outdoor retreat without the rocking motion.
Relax outdoors in a 4 point hammock for a stationary hammock experience. Traditional hammocks swing with the breeze because of their two point design--one point of attachment at each end to a tree, post, stand or other object. The stationary 4-point hammock offers an alternative to the traditional swinging hammock. Also called four point hammock lounges, camping hammocks or portable hammocks, these comfortable hammocks have 4 points of attachment--one on each of the four corners--to a hammock stand, to provide a motionless hammock nest.
Several types of fabric 4 point hammocks are available. Heavy duty stationary models of 4 point hammocks take up permanent residence whether backyard or beachfront. Lightweight camping hammocks fold up and fit into a backpack for hiking to campsites. Portable hammocks fold up and travel easily in a car or RV. Four point hammock lounges provide comfortable, relaxing furniture for landscaped yards and poolside patios.
A final alternative to the traditional swinging hammock is to modify a fabric or rope 2 point hammock. Two sets of tie down straps stabilize a traditional hammock when connected from each corner of the hammock to the base of the hammock stand. The use of tie down straps results in the look of a traditional 2 point hammock with the function of a 4 point hammock lounge.
If the enjoyment of nature or a gentle ocean breeze beckons you outdoors to relax in a hammock, don't let your motion sickness stop you from enjoying relaxation; try a 4 point hammock or a modified 2 point hammock. Have a relaxing day.
