    Hammie Mode


    Need: 2 strong trees 🌲🌲
    Creates: Oversized double hammock for king-sized comfort
    Difficulty: Easy


    Convert to hammie:


    1. Collect both red carabiners at each end of your M.C. Hammie
    2. Pull opposite directions

    Viola! You’ve reached Hammie Mode nirvana.


    Attach hammie:


    Option 1 (With just your M.C. Hammie)

    There are lots of ways to do this, here are a few options:

    1. Biners wrapped around opposite ways and clipped to self
    2. Extra long single strap single wrap, biner used to create self-cinching knot
    3. Extra long single strap setup with double wrap on tree and clipped to self


    Option 2 (with Wildish Freedom Straps)

    1. Cinch Freedom Straps around trees about 6 ft. high
    2. Clip M.C. Hammie to straps at desired height

    Warning: Make sure set-up is secure and won’t slip before you slide into your M.C. Hammie. First setup M.C. Hammie at chair height above ground and adjust for comfort.

    Blanket Mode


    Need: Ground space. Lots of space.
    Creates: A ground blanket for picnics, playtime, or sunbathing
    Difficulty: Super Easy


    Convert to blanket:


    1. Spread your M.C. Hammie out and lay it on the ground
    2. Done!

    Secure blanket [light play]:

    1. Stake down all 4 corners through silver and red carabiners

    Secure blanket [heavy play]:

    1. Stake down all 4 corners through silver and red carabiners
    2. Stake down all 4 edges through middle webbing loops

    Reminder: M.C. Hammies are machine washable. Be sure to remove carabiners before dropping in washer. Always air dry.


    Fort Mode


    Need: 2 hiking poles/sticks, cord, ground stakes
    Creates: A shady and cozy space for a play, nap or family pet
