Hammock Hang Calculator

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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!
And with the new clinometer, you can measure your hang angle more precisely. Even more ways to get that perfect hang.
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.

Clear, easy to understand hammock tool
Love this app, does one thing and does it very well. No more guessing on the proper hang for your hammock. Nice job!
I bought this to figure out my hang height because that's what you need to really know to get your angle right. Guess what it don't give any info on anything
Good and bad
So I bought this specifically for figuring out the 30° angle. I'm relatively new to hammocks but have loved them all my life. I have one on a stand in my backyard and I want to hang one in my home office and also take it with me camping, hiking etc.
So, step in first the website then the app.
Good thing: the app works in airplane mode! I bought it hoping it would since the description did not say. Yet, one of my favorite local county parks has zero reception so I needed the app to work without internet access. Awesome! It does.
Bad: it has an angle hang option but it doesn't explain how to use it. Which direction do I hold my phone? Vertical! Horizontal? Am I holding it against the rope? The tree, post, or wall? I am mathatically challenged 🤔. It just is not intuitive to me. I need to be told what and how to measure for the elusive 30° hang. A set of simple instructions would make all difference for using this one option. Maybe a photo or diagram?
Uncertain: newer hammocks have straps with carabiner hooks sewn on rather than long lead line ropes, I'm not sure how to adjust for that.
I can say my husband will be thrilled with the load weight because he tends to over-engineer anything his family might be hanging from (swings, hammocks, hanging chairs) for their safety. He will be very happy to see that when purchasing the correct hardware for hanging in my office. I'm sure where the hanging chair is in my office, it's engineered to hold probably the entire family. 💗
