How do I wash my ENO Hammock
We recommend either machine washing your hammock in a front loading washer, or hand washing your hammock.
If you are going to machine wash your hammock we recommend first removing the carabiners (no need to untie any knots), then washing on cold in a front load washer (no agitator) on the delicate cycle with a mild detergent (like Woolite or Dreft), or a gear wash.
If you are going to hand wash your hammock, we recommend using a bucket, sink, or bath tub with the same type of detergents listed above.
Do not put the hammocks in the dryer. Hang or lay flat to dry
How do I make my ENO Hammock last forever?
Check your gear before each use to ensure it is in good, working condition. Safety first!
UV damage will cause your ENO Hammock to fade in color and become brittle, which may lead to tearing. Do not leave your hammock out of doors year round but keep it “so fresh and so clean” by storing it in its attached compression stuff sack in a cool, dry space between every use.
While hammocking, remember to remove any sharp objects from your person, i.e. pocket knives, car keys, necklaces of teeth and/or stilettos.
Be careful where you set up! We do not recommend hanging over sharp rocks or hard concrete, near campfires or from dead trees. Remember to hang only 18" off the ground!
Remember that puppies love hammocking, too, but they’ve got sharp nails so hammock with caution. If any small tears or burn holes do appear, pick up a Hammock Repair Kit.
Will ENO repair my hammock?
ENO will repair your hammock back to (almost) new if the compression stuff sack has come off the hammock, if the compression strap has come off the stuffsack, or if the hammock knots have become untied or are fraying.
If you think your hammock needs any 1 of these 3 repairs, please send it back to us at 24 Buxton Ave, Asheville, NC 28801.
If it needs restitching, please address the package ATTN:RE-STITCH. If it needs retying, please address the package ATTN:KNOT RE-TIE.
Large fabric tears cannot be repaired but may be eligible for replacement. Small holes or burns can be repaired with our Hammock Repair Kit.
What is the difference between the SingleNest and the DoubleNest and the DoubleDeluxe?
All three hammocks are approximately 10 feet long, and will safely hold 400 lbs.
The main difference is in the width of each hammock and the actual weight of each product.
The SingleNest is approximately 4.5 feet in width and weighs 18oz.
The DoubleNest is approximately 6.5 feet in width and weighs in at 22oz.
The DoubleDeluxe is approximately 8.5 feet in width and weighs 29oz.
The extra two feet in the width of the DoubleNest makes for a roomier hammock and a more comfortable seat when sitting across in the hammock for one OR two people, while the additional two feet in the Deluxe is perfect for a couple to REALLY stretch out!
What is the difference between the Suspension Systems?
The original Slap Strap is nylon, weighs 12oz and is 7'4" long and 1" wide.
The Slap Strap Pro is nylon, weighs 8oz and is 9'4" in length and .75" in width.
The Atlas is polyfilament, weighs 11oz and is 9' in length and 1" in width.
All styles are sold as a pair and when used properly will hold up to 400 lbs.
Do I need a Suspension System to use my ENO hammock?
Your hammock will come with two 5/16'' carabineers on the ends that you can use to attach to whatever strapping or connecting device (ropes, webbing, ect.) for the objects you are using as your mounting points.
With that being said, our Straps make the set up process extremely quick and easy.
You don't need any knowledge of knots, the Straps simply wrap around your object and tighten on themselves. With regular rope, you need to find objects that are exactly 10 feet apart. Not so with the Slap Straps.
Once you get your Straps tight around your mounting objects, you are left with several loops that hang off and allow you to play with up to 20-30 more feet between your mounting points, giving you almost endless possibilities to where you can hang your ENO Hammock.
Heavy duty rope isn't necessarily great for a tree's bark either, but our flat tubular webbing is a lot gentler on trees. Plus, who wants to carry around pounds of heavy rope when you can just throw our 9oz Straps in your bag and be ready to go.
