The Ultimate Portable Hammock Stand

Absolutely the EASIEST and LIGHTEST and STRONGEST portable hammock stand in the world!

Set up quickly and HAMMOCK ANYWHERE you please. With 3 different models available you'll be sure to find one to meet your needs. No Trees, No Problem! Music Festivals, Oh Yeah! On the Beach, you bet! Tailgating, we got ya covered! You can use this anywhere. Having friends or family visit with no room for them? Set them up in a comfy hammock right indoors. Now worry about the hardwood floor with our non-skid rubber feet.  Visiting the in-laws yourself? Take it along and sleep in style. Are you into Hammock Camping? We have one for that too! The list is endless where you can use these.

Repeat after me: I can use my new Ultimate Portable Hammock Stand Anywhere!!

How we got to where we are today

The tripod hammock stand is not a new idea. The concept started many years ago in the form of a bamboo stand by folks of the hammocking community hammockforums.net. It evolved into many DIY versions over time. A couple of years ago we noticed that there were a lot of folks who just didn't have the means to build their own. Whether it be skill, tools or a place to work, they just couldn't accomplish the task. Working from this idea, we developed a Kit that allowed most everyone to put together a stand. We have sold many, many of these and the kit has been a huge success.

After a couple of revisions on our kit, we decided to venture into the idea of a full stand that was light enough, strong enough and easy enough to allow you to HAMMOCK ANYWHERE. We spent countless hours with pages of engineering formulas to put together just the right combination of pole sizes and lengths to give you the strongest stand at the lightest weight possible at an affordable cost.

Quality Built In

These will be constructed from high grade alloy aircraft aluminum and Delrin plastic components for a super strong but light weight design. Every part on this stand will be custom machined right here in the USA at our machine shop in South Carolina. All aluminum components including legs and top rail will be black anodized finish. Tripod legs are adjustable to allow for uneven ground or raising and lowering your hammock while still maintaining a 30 degree hang angle.

Why we need funding

Our goal from this Kickstarter project is to be secure the funds necessary to purchase our material in a bulk quantity for our initial run and to stock units for immediate sale as this is a very large investment for us. Once stocked, the hammock stand will sustain itself for future production.

Risks and challenges

This will be our 3rd Kickstarter campaign with the previous 2 being a success and on time!!

As we are the manufacturer with all machinery and tooling in house we have very low risk factors as we do not depend on 2nd and 3rd party manufacturers to produce our products.

Our risks, although extremely low due to designing with the most common sources and materials available, for The Ultimate Portable Hammock Stand would be raw material procurement as we can not control stock levels of these. Be assured that we are very experienced in manufacturing processing and will bring a great product in a timely manner to all of our customers.
