Designed to be used with Slacker Single or Slacker Double hammocks (sold separately), the Slacker Suspenders Hanging Kit by Therm-a-Rest makes set-up easy and provides a secure berth for sleeping or lounging. Fully adjustable, the Slacker Suspenders allow you to hang your hammock almost anywhere without any knot-tying ability or the hassle and weight of non-cooperative rope.
I am using the Therm-a-Rest Slacker Suspenders to support the weight of my Therm-a-Rest Slacker Hammock. These suspender straps are really, really easy to use and it makes hammock set up a breeze. So basically all you have to do to set up your hammock is find trees that are about 10 to 14 feet apart. That is what Therm-a-Rest suggests. And the tree has to be somewhere under 45 inches in circumference. So most trees will fit the bill here. And you can attach it to any... pretty much any attachment point. So it doesn’t have to be tree. It can be a pole or something like that, as long as it is strong enough to support the weight of a hammock.
As soon as you pick your attachment point, you just throw the straps around the tree and loop it through the integrated loop on the end of the straps. That is going to allow you to pull it tight against the tree like I have it set up here and there are ... there is a point of adjustability here. It is a really, really durable metal. And that is going to allow you to tighten and loosen the hammock to whatever spot you want to set it at.
These one inch webbing pieces are very durable polyester webbing. And the places where it is sewn together are also very, very durable. So this is going to last you a long time. It has a weight capacity of around 400 pounds, so that just speaks to the durability here.
Something I love about these straps is that you don’t have to tie any cumbersome knots. You don’t have to loosen any knots when you are done. It is really easy to set up and really easy to take down. And because of that one inch webbing you aren’t going to damage the tree or the point that you are attaching this to. So it is safe on the environment and it is really easy to use.
Although these straps are built specifically to go with the Therm-a-Rest Slacker hammocks, you can use them with virtually any hammock.
With the durable construction and easy set up, these are going to be a great addition to your hammock and will allow you to set it up wherever you go.
It is the Therm-a-Rest Slacker Suspenders.
