Portable 100% Duct Tape Hammock

Step 3: Hanging up the Hammock

At this point I found it easiest to hang it up and continue from there. I tied the 1ft strips at the end up to poles to hang the Hammock. You could also tie string to the end strips then tie the other end of the string to something to hold the Hammock up.

When hanging the Hammock it is important that there is a sag in the main support. The center needs to be the lowest part and the ends the highest. It should not be parallel to the ground.

Because of this the side supports should also have a sag to them. However we want them to be parallel to the ground. To fix this roll up the slack (see second photo on this page) and wrap up the slack with Duct Tape.
