Tensa Solo hammock stand

(6 customer reviews)


Tensa Solo packs much smaller and lighter than Tensa4, making it a great choice for backpacking, and it costs less. Unlike Tensa4, it requires strong ground anchoring, making it unsuitable indoors, and a little less reliable because not all soils work well with all anchors.

Each Solo supports one side of a hammock, enough when you can find one tree or similar suitable hanging point. 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, either built into the 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 page. A tarp can also serve the function of a ridgeline in holding the poles up when the hammock is unoccupied.

Solo consists of a 5-segment telescoping pole, two guylines, and two Orange Screws as ground anchors. Pole capacity is 350lbs/160kg (anchor strength permitting), packing to 20.5″x1.5″ (52cm/3.8cm), anchors and lines adding some. Extended poles are 58″/147cm to the hammock suspension, plus a 10″/25.4cm tarp extension.

    I purchased 2 Tensa Solo hammock stands, they are awesome! Easy set up, light, both fit into a nice carrying bag with anchor stakes and tie downs and any suspension gear. Use one with a tree, a car, or another anchor source, or use two Solos together wherever you want to hang. Never choose to sleep on the ground, awesome hang with Tensa Solo.

    This is an amazing product, so simple and effective.

    Easy setup, and resulted in one of the best nights sleep I have had.

    Make sure you drive the screw stakes in as far as you possibly can, and avoid soft dry dirt. Like they recommend, only hang your hammock as high as you are willing to fall, I appreciated that advice quite a bit when I didn’t drive the stakes deep enough the first few failed attempts.

    This hammock stand will stay permanently in my camping bag, even if I suspect I will have enough trees available. You never know when someone else will take the best hammock hanging spots and you’re stuck with a non ideal location.

    Todd & Cheryl,
    I am happy say that the Tensa Solo is a great product. So far I have only set up in my backyard using a Hennessy hammock w/ UQ and a typhoon tarp. After some trial & error, as well as DIY UCR lines it worked out very well. Thank you. G

    Very easy to setup, intuitive and durable. I’ve used it 3 weekends so far and it’s been great. Thinking about buying another set for my son so we’d be free to hammock anywhere!
