Tensa4 to Tensa Solo conversion kit

(19 customer reviews)


Owning both a Tensa4 and one or more Solo conversion kits provides the flexibility of owning both systems, more cost effectively than owning them separately. To save weight and pack space, bring only the parts you know you need, or take everything to be ready for anything.

This kit provides the parts necessary to make one Tensa Solo pole from an available Tensa4 pole. You’ll need two to hang without any trees or similar supports available. Order up to four kits to make up to four Tensa Solo poles from one Tensa4 stand.

Each pole requires two guylines and two anchors. We assume you will re-use those included with Tensa4 for the first pole. If you order two or more conversion kits with one Tensa4, be sure to order the extra guylines and anchors needed.

Kit consists of:

  • 1 #5 tarp extension segment with tarp connector
  • 1 large foot (removable)
  • 1 Tensa4 inner-foot removal tool
  • 1 lightweight drawstring bag
  • Optional: additional stakes and guylines.
Our included print instructions are incomplete, and don’t match some details of what you will receive, as we make ongoing small changes to the conversion kit and to Tensa4 itself. In the interim, we’ve made an instructional video of the conversion process:

    Though I haven’t tried the Solo Conversion Kit yet, the components look to be of high quality.

    Staking adequately can be a challenge, but the product is top notch.

      Yes it can. My best advice is get creative. Using that I have hung on a couple of granite slabs with what most people would say was absolutely nothing to anchor to.

    Love it. Some fiddling was necessary on first use, but once dialed in it is excellent.

    I like the Tensa 4, but the only problem is that when I want to bonfire while sitting in a hammock, the Tensa 4 frame gets in the way, so I ordered the Tensa Solo Conversion kit without much expectation.

    And the first time I used Tensa Solo, my expectations were betrayed.
    Of course for the better. A sense of stability that cannot be imagined from that shape.
    When you tighten the webbing, the pole is completely fixed, and it doesn’t shake or glare.

    The day I first tried Tensa Solo, there was a dozen meters of wind.
    I tried it, thinking that if I felt a danger, I would stop halfway through, but Tensa Solo overcame this wind!

    From this, I was convinced that Tensa Solo would be a lifelong companion!

    I purchased two Solo conversion kits to use when canoeing. One many sites where we do most of our canoeing (Northeast US), it hard to find enough open area under two trees to hang one hammock, let alone two if my wife comes along. With the two conversion kits, we only need one tree and can hang two hammocks close enough to cover with our large tarp. These kits are small and light enough to bring along, even with multiple portages.

    With my Treez, Solos and a Tensa4, I now have enough equipment for my wife and both kids to hang.

  15. Albert West (verified owner)

    Tensa is a great company to deal with, and their equipment works great!

  16. Albert West (verified owner)

    I really enjoy this equipment, and Cheyrl was very helpful in providing information and the product I needed!

  17. Davide Giovanni Maria Salvetti (verified owner)

    The Solo conversion kits work great, they let me hang everywhere.

  18. Stephen Y. (verified owner)

    This is a nice, well thought out conversion kit. It makes it easy to convert from the Tensa 4 to the Tensa Solo.

    I’ve been testing the solo pole for 3 nights(so far) in my backyard. The hang feels every bit as solid as my two fence post hang.

    I’ve been keeping an eye on the anchors and did have to move one of the because it was leaning but it didn’t fail!

    From my test runs I think the main keys are to run the guy outs as long as you can and then anchor the orange screws about 6 or 7 feet apart.

    Love being able to do one tree hangs with such a compact lightweight option.
