Hammock ropes WITHOUT tree strap
• MICROROPE – the cheap and easy hammock rope:
The simplest ropes for an outdoor hammock are our MICROROPES. They are infinitely adjustable, but a bit more laborious than our other suspension sets. In addition, they do not come with tree protection. You should only attach these hammock ropes to posts, frames, vehicles and the like. For use on living trees, it is essential to use an additional tree strap.
