A necessary accessory for hammocks is the stand. The most popular hammock stands are available in wood or steel and assemble easily. These hammock stands offer either a welded or screwed together construction for safety. One of the safest designs is constructed by welding the elbow into the foot cross piece with a 360-degree weld called a "right connection".
