Rated 5 out of 5 by Rafal84 Sturdy and Extremely easy to assemble.
The Hammock Stand feels very sturdy, a bit on the heavy side, but that is the drawback of having something sturdy. Assembly requires no tools at all, maybe a rubber mallet for the end piece covers, but I didn't need one. Only drawback is that the stand came a bit scuffed up from rattling around in the box during shipping.

Bought the hammock several years ago and hung it between two trees, but it was never the right distance. Bought the stand. Perfect. Easy to assemble, heavy duty, very stable, just the right span for the hammock. Wish I'd bought it sooner, the hammock would have been more comfortable.

My father has this hammock stand, and I have two sons who have put it through every conceivable stress test over the past 8 years. It has withstood them all perfectly. Apparently you can stand it on one end and climb it, catapult other humans off of it, flip it over, and it still stands straight and strong.

This is the second hammock stand we have purchased -- this one for daughter's family after loss of tree "stand". Solid construction, should last outdoors for many years.

The hammock for this stand was ordered a few years ago to hang between 2 trees but there are no trees here where we moved, so the stand that went with the hammock was ordered. so happy it was easy to put together. we use it often as weather permits.

Originally, I had used two trees to support my L.L. Bean Hammock. I soon realized that the distance wasn't correct to give the hammock the right level of comfort. After purchasing the hammock stand, I found that it was constructed to provide excellent comfort.
The stand is very well built, a bit pricey, but worth the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLJax Hammock Stand - sturdy!
I only received this recently, but can tell you that it was very easy to put up (according to the spouse).
This stand replaces the old system of hanging straps between trees, and I am very pleased with the purchase. I can only think that we will have years of enjoyment in the yard! Very sturdy with a good powder coating.

by lopma95 Easy to set up and use
I bought the stand to go with the L.L. Bean Duracord Hammock. It is a simple, easy to use stand that is sturdy. I expect that this will last as long as my previous one (~20 years).

Rated 5 out of 5 by FineFabrics Quality and Stable
This is a very stable piece of equipment that snaps together and will tear down to store for winter storage. It doesn't rock or move when you enter or exit the hammock. You feel secure with this under your hammock. Be prepared for a very large presence. It is big, so not likely that you will put it on a patio or deck. It supports a double wide hammock without blinking. Good job LL Bean.
