    Must have!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If you own a hammock, you need these straps! They make setting up any hammock much more versatile than the standard straps. They also do their part to help protect trees from damage! Who doesn't love that?

    A MUST!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've used a few hammock strap setups through the years, and this one is my favorite. Incredibly easy to use, and a little more customizable than straps with loops sewn on. You can dial these in to exactly the size you need. Makes setting up/taking down a hammock a breeze.

    Almost a necessity

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I use the Grand Trunk Double when camping or sometimes even in the backyard. Unfortunately the hammock itself does not come with anything in the way of extending the straps, so you're stuck with a small window of needed length between trees. If you don't find the right trees, you're basically out of luck.
    Not with this accessory though! Not very expensive for what you're getting in my opinion. Really opens up the possibility for setting up your hammock in may new places. And it helps protect the trees!! Double win.
    Very sturdy and durable. Easy to setup and use. Love the "stuff" sack it comes with as well. Definitely recommend you pick this up.

    Worth it

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I knew I would need extra rope and this hanging kit gets the job done. The pre-tied knots are convenient, but the real seller for me was the tree protector straps, doesn't slide, and doesn't let the rope dig into the tree. The kit is insanely simple to use to string up your hammock. so. simple.

    Wrong weight capacity

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    Product states 300lb limit on the straps so it won't work for my double hammock. Backcountry made the return easy and free but the rest of the process is a bit of a hassle. As I wanted to use them this past weekend it was a disappointment and now I have to wait until they receive the return so that I can call and order a different strap with my credit so I won't have it this coming weekend either. Not the first time this has happened. Let's get the specs right on the site.

    Does the job.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought this to go with my Grand Trunk Single Parachute Hammock. The straps that came with the hammock were just rope and I was worried that the rope would either slide down or damage the tree. These straps are super easy to use, stay in place, and don't damage the tree. They also fit inside the hammock bag when I remove the original rope that came with the hammock.

    Does the job.

    Hammock set up made easy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Grand Trunk's TreeSling's make setting up your hammock nearly anywhere a BREEZE. The sleeves are awesome because it is much less intrusive on trees than rope or other methods of hanging a hammock would be. It comes with pre-tied knots to attach to, with plenty of room for adjustment or to add your own knots. A must for any hammock camper!

    Hammock set up made easy

    just what I needed

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    For times when the space between trees is too far apart for the standard cord that comes with your hammock you want this to bridge the gap! I have a grand trunk single hammock which already came with rope that works perfectly fine if you find the perfect spacing between trees. I wasn't always so lucky and got frustrated so I picked up a pair of these and couldn't be happier! You can set them up virtually anywhere. I recently bought the eno double deluxe (which if you can find it on sale is great but the grand trunk double is a great bang for the buck, about $20 cheaper) and it doesn't come with a cord or strap to set it up so I got another set of these to go with it. Perfect pre-made knots and a nice tree saver/no slip feature to make sure it sets up right and secure for your needs.

    Are the cords coming from the tree straps adjustable? If so, how would they adjust? Do you have to tie knots to adjust or is it simpler than that?

    Best Answer

    They are already tied in knots that you can change up a bit if you wanted to ... But you will have a bunch of spaces between knots so you can adjust the length of the rope that you are using to set up your hammock. This kit is super simple! ENO makes slap straps that are basically daisy chains - similar concept. This is definitely better than what comes stock with most hammocks though because these include the thicker tree-protecting sock that also won't slip as easily as just paracord on tree.

    The picture on this link for a similar product might give you a better idea of what you're getting with these straps from grand trunk.

    Hopefully that helps!

    Thanks for the answer Laura! I went ahead and purchased them and they work great! I have a Warbonnet Blackbird and use the Grand Trunk hammock when my son camps out with me. I wanted an inexpensive suspension as simple as my blackbird hammock and these definitely worked nicely. Thanks!

    What material is used in the straps? Only...

    What material is used in the straps? Only says "synthetic"

    Hey there Russ, as these are just precut lines of webbing with a fancy "tree-protecting sock" I would venture to say that the synthetic fibers are made up of something along the lines of nylon, polypropylene or polyester. Ultra high-strength webbing can sometimes include Dyneema or Kevlar, but these are probably a nylon/poly blend.
