如何在没有任何树木的情况下悬挂吊床

您打算在沙漠或其他没有树木的荒野中露营吗? 还是只想在无树后院的舒适吊床上闲逛? 您可能很幸运–您仍然可以在没有树木的地方闲逛或放松地躺在吊床上。

Obviously, any hammock is going to need to hang from something.显然,任何吊床都需要悬挂在某些东西上。 No, we do not recommend recruiting your Uncle Jim to be one of the posts.不,我们不建议您招募Jim叔叔担任其中一员。 No matter how willing he is to offer help.无论他多么愿意提供帮助。 You need something better.您需要更好的东西。 A sturdy and reliable replacement to a tree.坚固耐用的树替代品。 Here are a few suggestions:这里有一些建议:

1.用混凝土建造自己的木桩

You might have an existing structure in your backyard, on the patio, or on your balcony—but more than likely you'll need to build your own posts.您可能在后院,天井或阳台上拥有一个现有的结构,但是您很有可能需要自己构建一个帖子。 Upright posts of any kind work, but you'll need a way to attach your hammock.任何类型的立柱均可工作,但您需要一种连接吊床的方法。 Large, steel eye-hooks are easy to find at the hardware store and are an excellent choice (or you can wrap the posts as you would a tree).钢制的大号钩子很容易在五金店找到,是个不错的选择(或者您可以像包裹树一样包裹柱子)。

An excellent method for building posts in your backyard involves 4x4's (or 5x5's) cut to the desired height.在后院中建造立柱的绝佳方法是将8x12(或XNUMXxXNUMX)切成所需的高度。 For your desired hammock height, remember that the posts will need to be sunk about XNUMX"-XNUMX” inches into the ground.对于所需的吊床高度,请记住,柱子需要沉入地面约XNUMX“ -XNUMX”英寸。

Begin by choosing your post spacing, keeping within the maximum of 18 feet apart.首先选择您的帖子间距,最大间隔不超过10英尺。 Then dig two holes about a foot in diameter and 14-2 inches deep.然后在直径约5英寸的脚上挖两个孔。 Add some gravel for drainage, about XNUMX” in the bottom of the hole, then mix concrete (you don't need a mixer, a good wheelbarrow or XNUMX-gallon bucket will do), place your posts, and pour.在孔的底部添加大约XNUMX英寸的砾石进行排水,然后搅拌混凝土(您不需要搅拌机,可以用一个好的独轮车或XNUMX加仑的水桶搅拌),放下桩子,然后倒水。

You'll need to wait for the concrete mix to cure.您需要等待混凝土混合物固化。 Concrete has a half-life, which means that theoretically it never totally hardens but it is usually safe to set up the hammock and try it out within 48-hours.混凝土具有半衰期,这意味着从理论上讲它永远不会完全硬化,但是通常可以安全地将吊床安装起来并在XNUMX小时内进行尝试。

2.吊床架或框架

Hammock stands are purpose made accessories, perfect for a semi-permanent hammock hanging spot.吊床架是专用配件,非常适合半永久性吊床悬挂点。 These stands or frames are often made of strong, but heavy steel.这些支架或框架通常由结实但重的钢制成。 Tentsile's帐篷的 吊床架 on the hand, is made of lighter weight and corrosion-resistant aircraft alumin(i)um.另一方面,它是由重量更轻且耐腐蚀的飞机铝(i)um制成。 This makes the stand easier to move around and longer lasting thanks to the lack of rust build-up from rain and moisture.由于没有雨水和湿气积聚的锈蚀,这使架子更易于移动,使用寿命更长。

In general, hammock stands have two supporting frames that run parallel to the ground, and they can be set up anywhere that is relatively flat.通常,吊床支架有两个平行于地面的支撑框架,它们可以安装在相对平坦的任何地方。 Once again, Tentsile does things a bit differently, with our 3-point hammock stand, exactly what you'll need for maximum support for your Tentsile hammock or tree tent.再一次,Tentsile在我们的三点吊床支架上做的事情有所不同,这正是为Tentsile吊床或树形帐篷提供最大支撑所需要的。

3.车辆

If camping, your car, including its roof rack can provide a good anchor point.如果露营,则您的汽车(包括车顶行李架)可以提供良好的锚点。 The roof rack may only work well if it is a reputable brand.行李架只有有信誉的品牌才能运作良好。 Cheap, after-market racks may not keep your hammock (or your body) secure, so be sure to check weight limits and test it out before hooking up for the night.廉价的售后货架可能无法确保您的吊床(或您的身体)安全,因此在挂夜之前,请务必检查体重限制并进行测试。 A car or truck with a tow hitch is the ideal option for this setup.带有牵引钩的汽车或卡车是此设置的理想选择。

4.即兴创作

挂没有树的吊床

Your yard or patio may already have the means to set up a hammock.您的院子或露台可能已经可以设置吊床。 Sturdy posts, the side of the house, and other structures can work well.坚固的柱子,房屋的侧面和其他结构可以正常工作。 Often, the problem isn't how strong the structure is, but how to attach your hammock to it.通常,问题不是结构的坚固程度,而是如何将吊床连接到结构上。 When looking for likely places to hang the hammock, corners are generally stronger anchor points than other options.当寻找可能悬挂吊床的地方时,角落通常是比其他选择更牢固的锚点。

Another creative option is to hang the hammock from your deck.另一个有创意的选择是将吊床挂在甲板上。 Or, if you have a deck that's raised off the ground a good amount (at least 4 feet), you can even hang a hammock或者,如果您的甲板高出地面(至少XNUMX英尺),您甚至可以吊床 您的甲板上-使用支撑梁作为锚点。

Wherever you decide to hang your hammock, always test out the spot you've chosen and make sure that if the hammock fails you don't fall on something that could injure you.无论您决定将吊床悬挂在什么地方,请务必测试一下所选的地点,并确保如果吊床失灵,您不会掉落可能伤害您的东西。 We recommend the most secure form of hammock, which happens to be the Tentsile way of doing things, with a我们建议使用最安全的吊床形式,它恰好是Tentsile的做事方式, 三点锚固系统. However you end up improvising, just remember to use plenty of common sense before climbing in. The goal is to create a relaxing spot to lounge, not a dangerous or unstable situation.但是,最终您会即兴发挥,只是记住在攀爬之前要运用很多常识。目标是创建一个休闲的休息场所,而不是危险或不稳定的情况。 Be creative but hammock responsibly!有创造力,但要负责任地吊床!
