The critical elbow joint is made using a newly developped steel plate system. This welded plate has been rigorously tested and has been found to be the strongest available. The installed spring pins prevent unintentional disassembly of the stand yet allow it to be easily taken apart for storage or transportation.
The stand is coated with the Cape Shield finishing process only from Hatteras Hammocks. Cape Shield is a special process of cleaning, preparing, and powder coating the stand to make it weather resistant and give you many years of enjoyment. The Arc Stand is finished with durable vinyl caps to protect the pole ends and rust resistant hanging Z-hooks designed to pull hammock at an angle for secure connection to stand. Supports large or deluxe hammocks with spreader-bars.
