How to hang up a hammock?
Before you can use a hammock, you have to hang it up in a suitable place. For this, you can use a stand, where you can attach your hammock to, or hang up your hammock between two trees or on the ceiling for instance. For this, you need extra fixing material. When hanging up a hammock, you need to make sure the cords run as straight as possible. So do not twist or tie them together! Next, you have to make sure the hammock sags when hung up, and that it hangs 20 to 40 centimeters above the ground when you sit down in it. A hammock will usually stretch 5 to 15 percent, something to keep in mind when hanging it up.
Sitting down in your hammock
Is your hammock hung up safely? Then you can start relaxing! A hammock with a spreader bar is easy to get in to. The stick makes the hammock stay open, so that you can easily sit down in it. Getting out is done by first moving your legs out of the hammock. Attention!Never put your feet in the hammock first, do not practice gymnastics in it and never put your head between the ropes.
