Preventing Damage

The best way to make your hammock last long and keep it in good condition is by knowing how to prevent damage.

Never Force a Zipper

If your zipper gets stuck, or is not running smoothly, don't force it! Zippers should be running smooth all the time, when they're not, something may be wrong.

Lift your shoulder when you are zipping and unzipping your hammock around your shoulder area. Putting your weight in that area creates tension on the zipper, and when you operate a zipper under tension, you may break zipper teeth, tear your netting/fabric, or pop the zipper slider off the zipper.

Check your Pockets

Don't jump in a hammock with anything that might catch on the hammock and tear a hole. Small holes can quickly become big holes.

Washing your Hammock

Washing your hammock is a pretty simple process. Fill up a bathtub or 5 gallon bucket with warm soapy water (a bit of dish soap works just fine) and wash by swishing the hammock around and scrubbing.

Rinse thoroughly with water to get all the soap off. Then you can dry your hammock by hanging it up outside. If your hammock has Tie-out Hooks, I suggest tying it out to help it dry quicker.

  • Can I treat my hammock with permethrin?

    Yes you can! Many of our customers have done this, and we have as well. We havn't noticed (or had reported) any negative effects from using this insect treatment. Just be cautious with it and read all of the warnings on the product. Also, permetherin is extremely toxic to cats when wet. If you have a pet cat, make sure you are very careful with it!
