One concern many people have with a new hammock stand is tipping. Will my new hammock and stand tip over unexpectedly? Hammock stands are built to resist tipping, but if you are particularly concerned, look for a hammock stand with a wide 'stance'. This means legs or supports that cover a wide angle from end to end.
