How to fold a hammock

We show you the correct way to fold a hammock with wooden -ends. This procedure requires 2 people. The supports are also known as bobbins or sticks. The general procedure basically consists of (1) Roll up the hammock, (2) Stretch and tension (3) Tie at the ends and (4) Put away.

Step by Step

Before starting to roll up the hammock, push the supports (poles) downwards. Place the wooden ornaments that hang at the end of the stick on the inside. Then fold, one by one, the flights first and then the arms with the rings, on the body of the hammock. At that point you can start rolling with the help of the other person. Before reaching the ring, fold it up before continuing to roll. Take a break from time to time to stretch and tighten. This is achieved by taking the end brackets and pulling out. This will allow you to achieve a firmer hammock in its fold. Once fully rolled up, tie at the ends. Lastly, put the hammock in its bag.

Protect from rubbing, sharp objects and cigarettes

When hanging your hammock you have to pay attention that it hangs well and does not rub against the ground. Hammocks must be protected from sharp objects such as scissors or knives. Smokers must be especially careful not to burn the hammock with the incandescence of the cigarette.

Pick up at night

Take down your hammock when it starts to get dark to protect it from the dew and from being soiled by nocturnal animals. If it does get wet, let it dry well.

Do not expose it to the rain.

Wooden-end hammocks should be hand washed with delicate laundry detergent and allowed to dry well. They should not be washed in the washing machine.

The traveling type hammocks must be washed by hand, you have to tie all the cables of the hammock to prevent them from getting tangled and wash it with detergent for delicate clothes.
