Basic Hammock Setup
Before you get started...
Before every use inspect the hammock, and straps for defects that may compromise a user’s safety.
How to Set Up a Coghlan's Hammock (Video)
1) First find two trees the hammock can comfortably fit between. The trees should be between 10' and 14' apart.
2) Unpack your hammock and provided rope from the handy stuff bag.
3) Measure a loop in the cord that's about 20% longer than the circumference of the tree you're using.
Then, tie a knot to create the loop.
4) Wrap the new loop around the tree at head level.
5) Pull the knot through that loop creating a cinch.
6) Open the part of the loop between the knot and the tree and attach your hammock carabiner.
7) Repeat this process with the other tree.
Once in the hammock you should have about 18" between the ground and the center of the hammock.
Check that your ropes are properly secured and both carabiners are closed.
Before you get in...
After setting up your hammock, double check that your suspension ropes and straps are secured properly, and that all carabiners are closed.
Be sure that the ground beneath the hammock is soft, and free of rocks, plants or any objects that might injure a person after exiting the hammock or if they fall out of the hammock.
Be sure that there are no sharp objects (keys, tools, pocket knives) in your pockets or attached to your person, that may damage the hammock, compromising its safety.
While using the hammock...
While occupied, hammocks should not be hang more than 18” from the ground.
Be sure to sit low in the hammock to make sure that it hangs evenly and securely.
