Tensa Solo hammock stand

(12 customer reviews)


Tensa Solo is a simple stand for traveling light and fast. Packing much smaller and lighter than Tensa4, it also costs less. Unlike Tensa4, it requires strong ground anchoring, making it unsuitable indoors, and a little less reliable because not all soils are firm enough to support the anchors.

Tensa4 converts to Tensa Solo for an occasional farther hike, but Tensa Solo does not convert economically to Tensa4. (Many ask after finding that Solo isn’t reliable enough in the loose fill dirt beneath their suburban lawns, and here is where we advise you to choose Tensa4 unless you need the hike-friendly portability of Solo.)

Each Solo supports one side of a hammock, enough when you can find one tree or similar suitable hanging point. Solos are sold as ONE pole. Two is a complete system. Before ordering more than two, consider whether our Tensa4 stand with Solo conversion kits might be a better value.

Solo requires a ridgeline to hold the poles up when the hammock is unoccupied or not attached, whether integrated into your hammock or provided separately (not included). If your hammock doesn’t have a ridgeline but did come with tree straps, you can use a tree strap as a ridgeline, or you can order one from our Parts section. A tarp can also serve this function of a ridgeline.

Solo consists of a 5-segment telescoping pole, hammock attachment toggle, two guylines, two ground anchors, and a drawstring bag, packing to 20.5″x1.5″ (52cm/3.8cm). Pole capacity is 350lbs/160kg; in practice, the hold of the ground anchors is more important than pole strength in determining the weight limit. We suggest 250lbs/110kg for more peace of mind. Hard soils will support more; loose less.

If you want to purchase only the pole, check this link. Saves money if you already have suitable anchors and lines, but note that we can’t fully support system components we do not provide.

Check the Tensa Solo instructions for detail.

    I purchased this as an addition to my Tensa 4 stand. Believe me I enjoy them very much. And I will be using them in the near future. Having great weather in Virginia Beach, VA I sleep outdoors in the yard every Friday and Saturday night. Awesome products. Thank you.

    I love both my Tensa4 Hammock Stand as well as my Tensa Solo setup. I used them with my SMR ninox flatlay and was amazed how great they work. When car camping, I use my Tensa4 for my hammock and the Tensa Solo to create a second covered area. Everyone that sees the setup falls in love with it. The Tensa team has a customer for life!

    This is a fun, useful piece of equipment. It’s light weight and once you get the hang of it, easy to set up and adjust. Costumer service was stellar because it was really fast and they gave me lots of ideas on how to set up for different situations and ways to be most cost efficient. It always felt like you were dealing with people and being treated like an individual with specific requirements they were trying to support. So far I have only used it in my backyard but it worked great. I was specifically looking for ways to hang my families hammocks (4) closer together with less reliance on just trees. I ended up buying 4 of these. Also they are built well and feeling like it will last many, many years.

    Ok this Tensa Solo is the real deal! I purchased one of the Solo Hammock stand with Boomstakes. I have to say you are going to want to practice setting it up. Does it work? Yes! I just returned from an overnight Motorcycle camping trip and I am sooo glad I had my Tensa Solo hammock Stand. One side of the hammock was suspended by a tree the other by the Tensa Solo. I slept so well had I not had the Solo with me it would had been a much rougher night.
    More orders coming!

    It works great and allows me the peace of mind to hammock camp anywhere.

    I used this on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Towpath, where there are trees but not enough of them, and it was awesome. Rock solid, and not hard to figure out.

    I wish I had found this sooner. Opens up so many more opportunities for hammock camping. Easy to learn how to set up. No concerns about hitting the ground with the orange screws and webbing. Looking forward to taking it with me on future bicycle trips.
