I'm using a stand inside made of 1" electrical conduit. I bought corner (30 degree slope) fittings for those tarp canopies online somewhere a couple years ago, along with a straight connector for the top bar, mainly because I thought I might occasionally need to travel with the stand collapsed. It took the three fittings, which cost about $13, plus 3 conduits, which were about $6 each. I already had vinyl caps for the legs. I intended to paint it, but never got around to it, 'cause I'm not that much into aesthetics. I worried that the fittings might not hold up to the stress, but so far so good. I probably sleep in it about half the time and I don't see any trouble yet. It looks like a mini swing set.

Hate to send you to the other hammock site, but there's a great thread on a simple stand that might be a good fit for you. You've got lots of options. That pipe stand could easily fold up when not in use.

Super simple, strong, fairly cheap, very quick bipod style stand.

Cheers. Not sure that same attitude exists on the other site. I'll leave it at that so we don't hijack this thread.

Thanks Brian,

I did see that one, and I really like the one you built from 2x4s. :)

If you decide to do the sketch up plan, I'll save it for future reference. <Big grin>

I'm still thinking on this, and the swingset plan from hammock forums looks like it might be just that, an indoor swingset. Unless I was to paint it...great for outside, when there's no trees. It looks like a hammeck stand...

The talk about compression forces makes me want to do a composite build with the pipe being the ridgeline very close to the ceiling and the wooden parts being the stand along the sides of the wall.

Anyway, I'm still in the thinking and planning stage and all the ideas are great and keep them coming!

Take it easy,

I'm skiing in WV this weekend, but will send you my Sketchup model next I'm at my laptop.

Hey, I can't upload the sketchup file here. I think the site has a filter that only allows for image files to be uploaded. Makes sense. PM me your email address and I'll shoot over the file. I'm headed to a hang here in NC this weekend, but will be back on Sunday night.

I'm interested in ideas on hanging indoors, without drilling into the studs, walls, etc.

I've hung using a turtle dog indoors, when I had lots of floor space. I've also drilled into the header studs and used porch swing anchors in a house I've owned, which was my preferred method. (Plan B if the
Private Landlords that accept DSS doesn't mind, patch the holes when I move out :-) )

I would like to be able to have the stand be "flush to the wall" or close enough that it doesn't take up room space, including avoiding a low hanging solid pole ridge if possible. I can unhook one side of the hammock to store during the day.

I'm relatively heavy, and would be using an 11' gathered end hammock, various ways to add the suspension can be done, like continuous loops, whoopies, etc. DIY

The distances from end to end would be like a standard bedroom, at least 14' or so.

Are there any ideas out there? It has to look relatively nice and not so much a "hillbilly/red neck" version, sorry if that offends...Significant Other would have to approve.

Thanks!
HI
I'd recommend you use the general concept behind the Turtle Dog stand, but take advantage of the fact that it doesn't need to be portable.

Hi
I think it's against the rental property agreement to change anything in rental property without the permission of the landlord.

Sometimes one idea spurs another so here is what I do for a temporary stand in my garage. I have a ridge pole similar to a turtle dog stand. I set it on 2 aluminum folding step ladder. One of the ladders is a little short so the pole sets on top of that ladder. To keep the pole from sliding off of that ladder there is a clamp on both sides of the pole.
