What are spreader bars?

Spreader Bars

The key and often overlooked part of the hammock is the spreader bars. These are the simple "bars" at both ends of the hammock that keep it wide open. This widening of the sleep area creates a flat space where your body can rest comfortably. These bars can be adjusted based upon personal preferences. The bars are usually made of wood, light metal or unbreakable plastic.
