Warning regarding the Hammock Suspension Kit LOT5110 and LOT5130. The Hammock Suspension Kit withstands the 200 kg weight limit specified, yet the safety margin is not high enough. Please return yours to the shop you purchased it from or send it in to us! 

This applies to the Lot Numbers 5110 and 5130. These Hammock Suspension Kits are easily visually identified: The webbing strap is black and the slit cord is grey. Other versions with black webbing/black slit cord or grey webbing/grey slit cord are not affected! View image.

Tests have shown that the bartacks of the Hammock Suspension Kit of lots 5110 and 5130 are not safe enough. While the Hammock Suspension Kit withstands the specified 200 kg, the safety margin is not high enough. The 6 bartacks (Nahte) should be sewn stronger to provide the additional safety margin. The Hammock Suspension Kit is available for purchase individually or is included in the Travel Hammock Plus with above Lot Numbers.

These Hammock Suspension Kits are easily visually identified (view image): the webbing strap is black and the slit cord is grey. Other versions with black webbing/black slit cord or grey webbing/grey slit cord are not affected!
