Ready to Set Up Your Hammock?

Now, you don’t need an ENO Hanging Kit to hang a hammock indoors. However, I thought I would use it in this example to demonstrate how easy the process is.

Of course, another alternative is to get a hammock with a frame or buy the stand separately.

This might be a better option if you wanted to move the hammock around or take it outdoors without having to install a bunch of hanging kits throughout the house.

The Eno Indoor Hammock Hanging Kit includes:

  • Anchor bolt hangers (2)

  • Detailed installation guide

(This is handy to know because this list gives you the materials you need to essentially build-your-own-kit with parts from your local hardware or home improvement store.)

How to Hang a Hammock Indoors:

Step 1:

Use a stud-finder to locate the studs in your walls. With proper installation to a wall stud, the ENO Kit can support up to 400 lbs in an attached hammock, such as ENO styles.

Step 2:

Next, install the 2 anchor bolt hangers with lag screws and washers to studs in the wall of the room where you want your hammock to be.

Step 3:

Finally, clip your hammock to the bolt hangers. It’s that easy – I wasn’t kidding!

Comparable materials if you decide to buy separately can do the same. Not all hooks and hangers are made the same and will be able to support the same weight, so be sure to check before you buy.

$8 Stud Finder for Hanging a Hammock Indoors the Fool-Proof Way

This small and compact stud finder is not your top-of-the-line tool. However, it costs less than $10 and will do the job just fine. Furthermore, it also comes with a built-in level, and it doesn’t require batteries either.

Since you can easily carry it around, you’ll probably find that you use it more often than you think. That makes it a good value in my book.
