Get the most comfortable and safe hang with your hammock! The Hammock Hang Calculator lets you calculate how high to set your anchors based on the size of your hammock and distance between points. Figure out how long your suspension lines need to be, even if you have a built-in ridgeline!

This calculator is useful on the trail, in the backyard, or if you plan on hanging a hammock indoors.

In addition to calculating hanging information, this tool lets you know the physics of a hang: how much tension and force are being applied to the anchor points, suspension lines, and hammock. Experiment with values to "dial in" your perfect hang.

Brought to you in partnership with “The Ultimate Hang - An Illustrated Guide to Hammock Camping.”

Great app but....

Koldsteel on

Great app to help set up your hammock for repeatable great nights of sleep. I do prefer the older app which gave you an inclinometer to calculate your angle of hang.

Nice app for hammock newbies

kermudjin on

Simple and easily understood interface providing useful guidance in planning your hang. Love the book and the website and the app is useful to have when off grid and planning to hang. Thanks, Derek!

Finally works!

CougarMeat on

When this “improvement” first appeared, it seemed a backspace key was missing from the number pad used for changing default values. Maybe it was an Apple system fix, or maybe it was an App fix (though nothing is mentioned in version history); there is now a backspace key so numbers can be changed - Yaaaa! Some may prefer the older graphics that showed all the numbers at once. But there is definitely new functionality. For example, you can lock certain values like ridge line length and distance between “trees” (anchor point) or anchor point above ground. That last number is useful to lock because at home, the an hour height and distance may be fixed. You can also change the hang angle continuously rather than in one or two steps in the older version. We now have all the functionality of the earlier version, plus more. It just takes getting familiar with the new graphics.

Step back

I don’t know why you abandoned the old app. You should go back to it and charge if you have too. It was complete and worked great. Now have to have another app. to find angle.

Returns/ Refunds?

B Arielle Reid on

How are app refunds processed?? The app is not what I am looking for.

Clinometer gone

Epic Fael on

Used this app when i first started hanging. Still busted it out from time to time to do a sanity check on my suspension angle. The redesign i too busy and the clinometer is gone. Why push through an update that removes one of the most useful features? Just wait until everything is ready.

Useful to Useless

This app went from being very useful to totally useless with the new update.

Old version was better

Redtech116 on

I liked how the old version let you see all Calc. With having to tap on them... Also where did the angle measurement go... ? The old app let you use your phone to measure the angle....

Used to love this app, now it’s all but useless

Marksman1122 on

I used to absolutely love this app for checking my hang angle. With the latest update there is no longer a clinometer included in the tools (or if there is, there’s nowhere I’ve been able to find it). This makes the app utterly useless. Luckily my compass has a clinometer, but bring back the old tools! I want to be able to lock in my current hang angle and see the forces again!

Disappointed user

Cheerwine Hammock on

The app has been oversimplified and is actually hard to use ,please go back to the original! The original app had a nice feature of which you could use your IPhone like a protractor and watch the forces change as you rotated your iPhone
