Parachute hammock – Riding a hammock is easy and, once you know how to do it, also fast. The most important thing is the following safety through proper assembly, and the choice of the right place. The hammock should hang in its entirety. Ideally, a high to long ratio of 1: 2. The most pleasant distance between the two ends of the hammock is between 3 and 4 meters. If the hammock hangs without enough space, lying on it will not be so comfortable. If the distance is too large, it can be compensated with a rope between the hooks and the hammock.
Ideal height for fixing to the wall: 1.8-2.3 m. If you extend the parachute hammock with a rope, it may be higher. At its lowest point, the hammock should be about 30 cm above the ground. However, remember that a new hammock has not yet been fully stretched, so it must be somewhat higher at the beginning. Drill the holes, insert the pins, screw the hangers and hang the hammock. If you have a good brick or cement wall, we recommend the 4-bolt wall hook . The load is distributed by the 4 screws. In this way, it can be mounted with appropriate 8 mm pins and resistive screws.
For other brick walls we recommend using screws that penetrate deeper into the wall. With a set of eye bolts, pins, carbines and ropes you can hang a bomb-proof parachute hammock on a brick wall, which can be lowered and hung with a simple handle. If necessary, you can put a drop of oil on the screw thread before screwing to prevent the pin from drifting. Gypsum walls are light partitions, which are not designed to withstand heavy loads. To fix a hammock to this type of wall, before fixing the second side, a fixing bracket must be placed, placing a pole or a patented support, as is done for example in the bathroom for the washbasin or to mount a toilet floating.
