Three standard poles, two base poles and two offset hanging hooks, and that's it. The poles' spring-pin assembly means that once you've unpacked all parts from their shipping box, you can have the whole thing up and ready for hammock hanging in about five minutes - that is, if you're really taking your time about it! We've seen the entire thing put together in just over a minute. Seriously. It's that easy.
Simple assembly, however, does not mean the stand is anything less than secure. In fact, our Tri-Beam Steel Hammock Stand, a Hatteras original design, is about as safe as it gets. The spring pins themselves have solid-steel cores, to prevent possible shearing, holding the sturdy poles of 2-inch 12-gauge steel firmly in place. Base and foot poles are attached using our patented 360-degree Right Connection weld, which in all these years we've never once seen fail.
