Tensa4 Hammock Stand

$295.00

Tensa4 is an innovative, go-anywhere hammock stand. It provides peace of mind when traveling with a hammock, indoors or out. With by far the smallest footprint, smallest packed size, and lowest weight of any stand so capable, Tensa4 supports up to 400lbs in hammocks up to 12′ long. It weighs 10-13 pounds depending on configuration, packs to 20″ long and about 5″ around, easy to carry on a bike, aboard a plane, or a couple miles up the trail.

Check the setup instructions for detail.

Description

No good trees available or allowed to hang from? Or maybe you just want to hang closer to where your friends are, or to your motorcycle, or where the light and wind is best. Maybe you’re in a motel and not feeling great about the bed, or stuck in an airport long enough for a snooze. Needing only a single low-tension guyline to maintain balance, Tensa4 sets up quickly everywhere from on top of a twin or truck bed, to steep slopes, to sandy beaches, to concrete slabs. Get off the ground, no matter what!

It will accommodate any gathered-end hammock on the market, up to 12′ long, as well as bridge (e.g. Warbonnet Ridgerunner) and transverse (e.g. Amok Draumr) hammocks. Unlike many portable hammock stands, ours supports full-size hammocks with a deep 30° sag for comfortable sleeping on the diagonal, while still offering good seat height.

The stand works fine with tarps for complete shelter. 11′ tarps are ideal; longer require modest ingenuity or our tarp extension kit, which also provides more headroom.

The product is four poles made of 28 segments of custom-made telescopic anodized aluminum tubing, four pole connectors with carabiners, two guylines and anchors, one ridgeline, one baseline, and a bag.

    5 out of 5 Excellent!

    Christopher Shirley (verified owner)

    This hammock stand is very nice! It’s much more stable than you would think, and hanging a tarp over it is a breeze. The initial setup requires a bit of trial and tinkering, but once you get it where you like it, the setup time becomes pretty quick and easy. I don’t have suitable trees for hanging in my backyard, so this stand affords the opportunity to test out gear before camping miles away from home.

    Nathan Donaldson

    This is a great stand – looking forward to using it in the wild. I see in the photo that the hammock is attached to the stands ridgeline – I would love to see a close-up photo of this as it looks like and interesting solution.

      I do not have instructions on how that particular hammock is hung as that picture is from tensa’s site. That is not the way we would hang one of our hammocks. Here is a video from Shug on how to put up and operate the stand and hang your hammock:

      See the following paragraph that is in the description:
      “The product is four poles made of 28 segments of custom-made telescopic anodized aluminum tubing, two anchors, one guyline, one ridgeline, one baseline, a head tether, and a bag. Lines are Amsteel, as utility constrictor ropes (UCRs).”

      The two anchors actually screw into the ground securing either end. Here is a video link from Shug that is pretty informative:

    sarahchristine1

    Any experience or advice on using this indoor? I’m thinking maybe weight down the two ends rather than the two orange screws? I’m hoping to avoid nasty hotel beds when traveling as another use…

      We do not have indoor use test results and I would advise you to go directly to tensa and inquire with them.

    5 out of 5 Game changer for hammock stand portability

    Karl Quist

    I have owned a Tensa4 stand for about 3 months now. In my opinion, this is a game changer for portable hammock stands, especially for motorcycle/bicycle camping. The stand is very stable, and collapses down to a very manageable bag, that easily fits on my motorcycle. One of the most important aspects of this stand, is that I don’t have to worry any longer about whether I will be able to find a place to hang my hammock at the end of a long day of traveling.

    5 out of 5 Trekking poles

    webb.william42

    Would love to see a design to convert part of poles in to trekking poles. Then could possibly cut carry weight in Half for back packing.😁 Definitely getting one of these for my bike.

      You will be able to use it either way. We have always set it up with hammocks that have ridge lines.

    4 out of 5 Genius Design, just needs tweaking!

    chris.ofsthun (verified owner)

    I’ve been hammock camping in a Hennessy Hammock for 6 or so years always hanging from trees or between vehicles. I started traveling by motorcycle this year and found that I needed a stand as tying anything to trees has become banned in many places so I chose this stand for it’s ability to pack down into a very small package. I think it’s a genius design but could use some tweaks to make it better. I bought the new version with the straps so I would get the new system that links the poles together with the toggle. I really think the ridge line should be either a large whoopie sling or a dogbone style of ridgeline with set lengths for the hammock you want to use such as an 11ft Dutchware Chameleon hammock has a set ridgeline length and a set length line for the width of the stand to allow for maximum stability for that type of hammock. I know the adjustable straps allow for infinite adjustability for any and all hammocks but it’s frustrating to be required to constantly adjust it to find the right setup. Now that I have the length and width measurements, I’m going to make a dog bone ridgeline and use whoopie slings for the tie outs down to the screws in the ground. With a little bit of tweaking and replacing the adjustable straps, I think this will be a game changer in the world of compact car or motorcycle camping.

    5 out of 5 One Satisfied customer highly recommended to everyone using hammocks!

    Justin Williams (verified owner)

    I just got the Tensa 4 yesterday, I got it all set up and I spent the night outside on my deck. Im super happy, the stand goes together easy, was easy to adjust, its very stable and I feel very secure while in the hammock as well. I got the stand because of its compact size. Ill be using it on my motorcycle trips from now on, no more sleeping on the ground. Im looking forward to the many years of future trips and camping weekends with my Tensa4. Im very satisfied with the Tensa 4 Hammock stand. If you enjoy using a hammock this stand is a must have, best part you can set it up anywhere, No trees required! #1 stand in my book

    Thank you
