Yes, ROCT Outdoor’s 3-N-1 Mesh Hammock’s arrive “outdoor ready” with 4 carabiners and 4 tree friendly straps. This means you receive all the gear necessary to walk outside and enjoy your hammocks the moment you receive them.

The hammock is cocooning me, what do I do to get the sides to lay flatter?
Yes, if you lay straight in the hammock it will form a sort of cocoon. To eliminate this, shift your body to lay at a slight angle. Doing this will help “open up” the hammock and get the sides to lay flatter.
Additionally, when hanging the hammock try to hang it with just enough slack and tension. Some of the cocooning effect can be eliminated by not having the hammock so taunt, i.e.give the hammock a bit more slack. After hammocking a couple times, you will know just how you like it set.
What is the weight limit on my hammock?
That depends on whether you purchased a single or double. Below are the weight limits based on size, and AirFLOW mesh vs. nylon.
AirFLOW Mesh Weight Limit: 330 lbs

How do I care for my ROCT Outdoor Hammocks?
We recommend cleaning your hammocks by either hand washing or machine washing in a front loading washer. If you are going to machine wash, first remove the carabiners or other hardware, wash with cold water on the delicate cycle with a mild detergent, like Woolite.
As hammocking often occurs under or around pine trees, sap is a common problem. Spot treat sap residue with baby wipes before washing.
Finally, we don’t recommend putting your hammock in the dryer, hang or lay flat to dry.
What if my knots have come undone on the ends of my hammock and the strap has come out of the channel?
This sometimes can happen when washing your hammock. Basically you need to slide the strap back through the end channel of the hammock. We find that having a stiff tent rib or something similar helps guide it through. Once you have it through, tie the two ends together in a secure knot.
How do I best care for my hammock while using it?
Laying the hammocks on the ground can cause snagging of the material on sharp sticks, pine needles and pinecones. Therefore, it is best to leave the hammocks in their stuff sacks until you have the straps secured on trees. Then pull the hammock out, hold the entire hammock while securing first carabiner, then move to the second carabiner.
UV exposure can cause your hammock to fade become brittle which will lead to tearing. Do not leave your hammock outside when you are done, always put it back in the attached stuff sack and store in a cool, dry space when not in use.
Remember while hammocking, remove any sharp objects from your person, i.e. pocket knives, car keys etc… that can snag or rip your hammock material.
Though dogs love hammocking with their owners, it is easy for their nails to create small tears so use caution. If a small tear does occur, there are several hammock repair kits on the market.
