Description

Tensa4 is a highly portable indoor/outdoor hammock stand. It is the commercial version of the original “tensahedron” design shown by one of Tensa Outdoor’s founders on Hammock Forums.

It will accommodate any gathered-end hammock on the market, up to 12′ long, as well as some bridge (Warbonnet Ridgerunner) and transverse (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.

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 vehicle. 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 bed, to steep slopes, to sandy beaches, to concrete slabs.

The stand works fine with tarps for complete shelter. 11′ tarps are ideal; longer may require modest ingenuity to tension properly, with tips available.

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).

    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.

      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:

    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.

    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:

    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.

    Question

    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.
