Zinc-plated steel hammock hooks are ideal for installing your Mayan hammock either indoors or out. When a hammock is hung from an unmoving, static 'J'-hook, all the friction of swinging is borne by the end-loop. We've seen end-loops literally melt from the friction created by enthusiastic kids swinging a Mayan hammock hung that way. A true hammock hook is created with an 'S'-hook closed around an eye-screw. All the friction of the swinging motion is transferred to the junction between the 2 metal components. They are also easy to install inside any wooden-framed ('stick-built') home (see "Hang It Up!" page).
