Hammock Fixing Kits
Snap-Hooks: These work well when used between trees , open beams, a pergola, gazebo or hammock posts. Our Hammock Suspension Kits for Trees comprise approximately 4m of Marlow Rope, and 2 x 12mm snap hooks.Use them with nylon rope. They hinge and can be opened to provide a hook then snap shut to hold the brasso eye fast even when swinging.
Coil the rope around the tree etc and either knot it into a final loop through which the snap-hook can pass or leave a tail and knot your snap-hook onto the end of this. Use the snap-hook as a connector between the brasso loop and the rope. This saves wear on the suspension loop and means you can put up and take down really easily leaving the rope and snap-hooks out.
Eye-Bolts: Use these when you're fixing into wood or with a masonry plug into solid stone or concrete. Our Eyebolt Suspension Kits comprise 2 x 10mm eyebolts, 2 x plastic masonry plugs and 2 x 12mm snap hooks. Screw the eyebolts into the requisite depth and as the eye is a ring, use a snap-hook again to connect the brassp loop to the eye-bolt. If added rope is needed tie the rope between the eyebolt and snap-hook rather that the brasso loop and snap hook as this will save wear on the brasso.
