Tensa4 is a patent-pending, lightweight, compact, indoor/outdoor full-size hammock stand, the commercial version of the original “tensahedron” design shown by one of Tensa Outdoor’s founders on Hammock Forums.
Packed size is about 20” x 4” x 4”, and it weighs 11 pounds. We rate it to hold 400 pounds. It will accommodate any gathered-end hammock on the market. The stand has completed a beta testing program with a variety of different hammockers (small to large, light to heavy) without significant problems. We have used it with several different tarps without need of modifications or accessories. The product is four collapsible poles, one anchor, one guyline, one ridgeline, one baseline, and a bag.
The stand is made mainly of 28 segments of 4 telescoping sizes of aircraft-grade aluminum tubing, with over 500 distinct machining and finishing steps. Lines are Amsteel, as utility constrictor ropes (UCRs). We make it in a small home shop, partly at the kitchen table, with quantities limited.
Extra shipping if outside the USA. We are asking a conditionally refundable $10 deposit to hold your place in line. Once in line, we will give you an estimated delivery date. You will have 7 days to decline that date and receive a full refund of your deposit. If we are unable to meet the estimated delivery date we will give you a new one, with the same 7 day right of refusal. If there is any substantial change in the stand and/or the price you will again have the 7-day right of refusal.
When we are ready to ship we will ask for the remaining payment ($290). You will have 7 days to pay, or we will go to the next in line.
Current wait for fulfillment is running between 30 and 60 days, occasionally sooner.
