Get the most comfortable and safe hang with your hammock! The Hammock Hang Calculator lets you calculate how high to set your anchors based on the size of your hammock and distance between points. Figure out how long your suspension lines need to be, even if you have a built-in ridgeline!
This calculator is useful on the trail, in the backyard, or if you plan on hanging a hammock indoors.
In addition to calculating hanging information, this tool lets you now the physics of a hang: how much tension and force are being applied to the anchor points, suspension lines, and hammock. Experiment with values to “dial in” your perfect hang.
