I should have looked at the pictures before I bought. I have an extra large Mexican hammock. To hang at the proper angle, so that a person can lie across it the ends of the hammock need to be nearly 6 feet above the ground. The ends of this stand aren’t even 4 feet high, which means the hammock needs to be hung much tighter than is should be to keep your butt off the ground. This forces you to lie lengthwise, not the way these hammocks are supposed to be used. I’m disappointed that the sellers didn’t point this out.
