Hammock Hanging Accessories:
Overview of items that can be used to hang hammocks
Many people consider purchasing a hammock, but do not know how to hang the hammock. There are a variety of accessories that will make hanging your hammock, chair or swing easy and stable. This article will provide an overview of these accessories and should provide information that will help you determine which of these accessories will be right for you.

One of the most important aspects of a hammock is the rope. The ropes will be used to hang the hammock and to support most of the weight of the user. Ropes need to be durable, and most hammocks will come with the proper hanging equipment. Its good to inspect your ropes every few months for fraying or weakness, although, with proper care, they should last for several years. It is also relatively easy to replace the ropes when you need to. The best way to care for your ropes is to treat them well. Do not cut them or overstretch them.

Loops connect to the ceiling, tree or anchor point, while hooks connect your hammock to the hanging loops. A rope or hammock chain is used to connect the hammock to the hooks that will support it. The looks are generally metal and are pretty durable. You should not ever have to replace a loop unless it happens to become rusted and you do not like how it looks. Overall these are durable.

Tree straps help protect your trees by wrapping around the trunk. They are usually large enough to fit around the trunk of all but the largest trees, and they are designed to not slip down the tree's body. These not only save the tree, but distribute the weight around the tree to prevent the trunk from bending.
