How to Hang a Hammock:
         Tips for Hanging Hammocks
You will want to place hooks or straps between four and five feet from the ground on your tree or stand for spreader bar hammocks, and five to seven feet for non-spreader bar hammocks, which bow more in the center.

Ideally, your two anchor points will be between 14 and 17 feet apart for most hammocks. If you don't have two trees, you can use the side of your house, a fence or a 4 X 4 piece of lumber planted into the ground in a concrete base. There are also a number of commercially available hammock stands.

You will need two 8ft pieces of 1/2 inch nylon rope for the hammock. Start by folding the rope in half. Insert one half of the rope into the hammock chair loop, then grab both ends of the rope and pull them over the loop and then through it.

Pull both ends of rope tightly. Pull both ends of the rope to the back of your anchor point. Tie an overhand knot and adjust to the recommended height, pulling the rope tight. Pull both ends of the rope to the front again and cross both rope ends under the rope work you have already done.

Take both rope ends outward and above the existing rope work, then tie an overhand knot at this point. Pull the rope ends to the back again and tie two overhand knots. Repeat all steps on the opposite, and then begin enjoying your hammock!
