Quick and Simple Tips

    1. Children under the age of 7 must use the hammocks under the supervision of an adult.
    2. While using the hammock, you can sit or lie down. DO NOT try to stand in the hammock as this is very dangerous. proper use of onewind hammock
    3. The recommended distance from the ground to the bottom of the hammock is 15-50 cm.

Step 4. Right length of the ridgeline.

When you first start out, it can be hard to define exactly how far apart the ends of your hammock need to be. The common length of the ridgeline is 83% of the total hammock bed length so an 11' hammock would need a 9'1.6" ridgeline. However, sometimes you need to adjust the length of the ridgeline so that you will get a perfect amount of sag for you.

The Benefits of Hammocking for Beginners

Hanging in a hammock is not just an activity for lazy people. It has many benefits that are worth considering if you are a beginner.

Hammocking can be a great way to relax and unwind after a long day at work or school, but it can also offer many other benefits. For example, you can use your hammock as a place to read or as an outdoor bed.

If you are looking for some new ways to enjoy your outdoor time, then hammocking might be the perfect solution for you.
