How To Set Up A Hammock - Sleep Safe Everywhere


This article will show you how to set up your hammock basically everywhere.

Once you follow a few easy steps sleeping in a hammock can be easy, safe and fun. 

1. Look Up 
Make sure that nothing can fall on you from above. Avoid old trees with loose branches.

2. The Right Distance
The distance between the two main pillars (most of the times these are two trees) should be 3-5 meters. 
Note: choose trees that look alive and strong and are at least 15cm in diameter

3. The Right Height
Rule of thump: attach your hammock at the height of your own head in order to guarantee an easy entry and exit. 

4. Center Your Hammock
Make sure your hammock is centered - this will ensure a more comfortable sleeping position as your head and feet are on the same level.
