Mayan hammock stands

Despite what is being said on

NO, YOU CANNOT hang a Mayan style hammock from a "classic" shammock stand - i.e. the "tri-beam" stand.

Mayan hammocks need suspension points ten to 12 feet apart, and roughly 6 feet above ground. This is higher and closer together than the common stands which are made for hammocks with spreader bars - properly hung at 13' to 15' apart and 4' to 4.5' above ground. Mayan hammock can be STRUNG UP on a common stand, but will not open properly.

If you follow the advice of these shammock purveyors, you will end up cursing the Mayan hammock for "wrapping you up like a taco." Let's lay the blame squarely on these shammock dolts and common shammock stands, which do not properly accommodate Mayan hammocks (spreaderless hammocks). Common 3-beam hammock stands, and Roman Arch style stands, do not even suspend the Caribbean style hammock (those with spreaders) in an ideal manner.

The shammock purveyors at are clueless:

can you hang a mayan or mexican hammock from a traditional stand ...

I have a mayan/mexican hammock (without a spreader bar). Can I hang this from a classic stand like this, for.
Hammock Chair Stands -

These "classic" stands are all open forms. As such, they wobble as the hammock swings, damping out the soothing sway of your hammock in a few short seconds. Furthermore, the pipe junctions, where all the stress is placed on these stands, are on the ground, where they rust. The wooden arch-style stands are laminated - and in a short time the laminate comes apart as it sits in the sun and rain.

A few short seasons and your "classic" hammock stands will break.

The bar that lies directly beneath the hammock on classic stands is a tripping hazard.

You can't mow under it. It leaves ugly brown spots in your lawn.

"Classic" stands bigger and heavier than they need to be, and provide less utility than they should.

The solution is our patented stand- called Infinity™
The only true
Universal Hammock Stand.

Infinity™ is the only stand which will properly accommodate both Mayan (spreaderless)hammocks and hammocks with spreaders.

You can even improve the sway of the shammock you bought from the other guys, if you put it on our Infinity™.

  2. Mayan hammock stands are always useful to hang different varieties of hammocks easily. Basically the Mayan hammocks are powder coated which are more durable than normal hammock stands.

  5. Prime Garden 9' Double Hammock with Stand from Bizarkdeal

    When I revived my new hammock, I knew instantly that I HAD to write a review. I had to tell the world just how amazing it is. It's not only gorgeous but so extremely comfortable and durable. It help my friend and I with ease. The ropes are strong and sturdy and all of the hardware was well made and flawless.

    The bed measures 78 x 54 inches with a total length of 118 inches. It can hold two adults very comfortably. It even included a carrying case. The material of the hammock is so soft and so extremely relaxing to lay in and watch the kids plan and get a nice sun tan. It's top quality when it comes to durability and comfort. Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this hammock to anyone who needs a little relaxation and getaway in their own backyard. Not to mention it just looks awesome in your yard! It really is so comfortable, almost like floating in a cloud. Great hammock!!!!
