ENO Deluxe Hammock Hanging Kit
This little contraption is designed to go straight into the drywall—through a wooden stud, of course. It is rather small and much less intrusive than a hammock stand.
The best part? You can easily clip the hammock off when it’s not in use.
This handy wall hanger promises an easy assembly and adjustable design. It has a pretty sleek look, keeping all of the hardware behind the case so you don’t see any of the screws.
When attached to wooden studs in the wall, this device can hold up to 250 lbs.

Other ways to hang a hammock
Depending on how you plan to use your hammock, there are a few different ways to hang it, aka hammock suspension systems.
If you have a small, portable hammock that you want to take camping or hiking, you’ll simply need some tree straps and carabiners.
If you don’t have trees—or are looking for something a little more permanent—you may want to invest in a hammock stand.
Or, a folding hammock that comes with its own collapsable stand.
