Have you been wondering how to hang a hammock in a garage? You’ve come to the right place!

One day I was inside my garage and decided that I would re-organize it because it was in such a mess. I then proceeded to take down everything that was hanging on the walls including all the tools. I then had the brilliant idea to put a hammock up in my garage! Now, I had never hung a hammock before, but I was confident that I could do it.

I did some research online and found that I would need some specific tools to hang my hammock in my garage. I would need two drill bits, a screwdriver, a tape measure, and some wall plugs. I also found the best place to hang a hammock is from two support beams that are close together.

So, armed with my new knowledge, I set out to go shopping and find a great hammock that would be best for my garage and how it would fit in the space that I had. Once I had all of my supplies, it took me less than 30 minutes to set up my hammock! It was super easy and now I have a great place to relax in my garage.

There are a few things to keep in mind if you’re thinking about hanging a hammock in your garage. 

First, make sure that you measure the distance between the two support beams before you buy your hammock. 

Second, be sure to use the appropriate drill bits for the wall plugs. And third, take your time while hanging the hammock so that it is level and even.

There may be potential complications when hanging a hammock inside your garage like not having enough space, or the support beams not being strong enough to hold the weight of the hammock and person. 

But overall, hanging a hammock in your garage is a great way to add some extra relaxation space without taking up too much room! Check out our how to hang a hammock indoors guide here.

Common Questions:

Can you hang a hammock from wall studs?

Yes, you can! But, you will need to find the studs in your wall first. Then, you will need to use a drill bit that is the appropriate size for your wall plugs. 

Once you have found the studs and marked them with a pencil, you can drill a hole and insert the wall plug. Be sure to use a level to make sure that the wall plug is inserted correctly.

How do I know if my garage ceiling will support a hammock?

The best way to know if your garage ceiling will support a hammock is to look for two support beams that are close together. If you have a truss roof, there should be support beams running the length of your garage. 

These beams are typically 2x4s or 2x6s. If you have a beam running the width of your garage, it is likely not load-bearing and cannot support a hammock.

How do you hang a hammock on drywall?

You can hang a hammock on drywall by using wall plugs. Wall plugs are plastic or metal anchors that are inserted into walls to provide support for screws. 

To install, first use a drill bit to make a hole in the drywall. Next, insert the wall plug into the hole and screw it in until it is flush with the wall. Finally, screw in the eye hook or carabiner.
