I picked up one kind of like that for the wife's bridge net whatever type hammock. So I tried my hammock (10 " gathered end type) on it and ended up about 6" off the floor. Not saying it wont work but I think I remember seeing on you-tube or someplace adding some conduit to the end pieces to one of this type stands to use with a gathered end hammock.

I got one that looks like it's similar to that. It works for most of my hammocks, but some are pretty close to the floor when loaded. I don't use a ridgeline when I use stands like these. If I do, I rig it to the stand itself, and not the hammock. I also took out the J hook and replaced it with and I bolt and I don't use the chains at all, although they will work. I put a strap to the I boold and use a becket hitch to attach to the hammock loop. You'll find the stand has a lot of flex, and that's the reason I don't use the hammock ridgeline. Oh yeah, the sucker is pretty heavy, too. Mine stays outside on the deck most of the year.

I've got one of these. I also have issues with being too close to the floor. I took some para cord and ran it from one j hook to the other. Pulled it as tight as I could and tied it off. Now the only flex is when the cord stretches. It does take some fussy adjustments to get my 11' hammock to fit.

Hopefully, I will be building a set of turtle-dog stands for me to use in the backyard within the next few months, I will be hanging though at home.
Any day in the outdoors is better than a day at work.
