RED FOX SLING
SAFETY WARNINGS


Congratulations on the purchase of your new Red Fox SLING hammock. A Red Fox SLING is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and take a break from a busy lifestyle. However, there are a few precautions that should be taken to ensure that you use your hammock in a safe manner. It is important that these guidelines be carefully followed to avoid the risk of serious injury.
Please read and follow these instructions for safe and enjoyable use of your new hammock. These guidelines are recommended by Red Fox Wireless, not only for your safety, but to also extend the life and enjoyment of the hammock. When hanging the hammock it is necessary that it be done properly. This means that the hanging points for each end of the hammock should be within the recommended minimum and maximum hanging distance prescribed by Red Fox Wireless. If the hammock is stretched too far between hanging points, it will increase the likelihood that tipping will occur. Likewise, if the hammock is not stretched far enough, it will sag and you may hit the ground when you sit in it. The best height is 1’6” from the ground.
It is important to hang the hammock in a secure location. If a hammock stand is not used, the hammock should be fashioned to structures that are able to support the weight of the hammock and its occupant(s). Furthermore, much care should be given to make sure that the hammock is properly tied or fastened tightly to the structure so that it will not loosen or fall when you get in the hammock. The hammock should never be fastened to an object that has the potential to move. If you are anchoring the hammock to trees, you need to make sure that the trees are the correct distance apart. Make sure the trees are strong enough to support the weight of the occupant(s). In addition, make sure that you hang the hammock so that it is high enough off the ground. Otherwise, a person can hit the ground when getting into the hammock.
Please remember that children should not be allowed to use the hammock while unsupervised. While hammocks provide a fun means of relaxation for children, they do provide a certain degree of danger. Children can become easily entangled in hammock strings resulting in serious injuries such as strangulation. Hammocks can become quite unsteady at times and children may not have the balance or coordination to enter or exit the hammock without falling to the ground. There should also be no horseplay in or around a hammock.
To prevent these potential problems from occurring, children should be supervised at all times while using a hammock. If you have children around, do not let them use the hammock unsupervised. If children are not supervised, they can fall out of the hammock and hurt themselves. Be sure to instruct children that the hammock is not a toy. You may want to store the hammock out of the reach of children when it is not in use.
It is a good idea to bring the hammock inside when you are not using it. Rain, snow or UV rays will, over time, weaken the hammock’s fabric.
When you are in the hammock, do not make any sudden movements. Otherwise, you or someone else may fall out of the hammock. Before you get in the hammock, make sure that it is set up properly. When you get in, move slowly so that you do not put the hammock into a state of imbalance.
Failure to follow the following instructions could result in injury or even death:
  • Never swing in the hammock. This will only damage the ropes and the trees they are tied to.
  • Be sure you use living, solid trees as supports.
  • Pull on the ropes that you tie to the trees before getting in the hammock to be sure that the trees are strong and the trunks are not rotten.
  • Do not put more weight in your hammock than the weight limit given in the specifications.
  • Always check knots on main ropes to be sure they are tied properly before entering the hammock.
  • Always check main ropes to be sure they have not been damaged or frayed. If they are not in excellent condition, replace the ropes.
  • Never stand in the hammock. Standing makes the hammock unstable.
VERY IMPORTANT!
  • LOOK OUT for “Deadfall” - old branches that have died and remain lodged high in the tree.
  • When choosing a place to sit up your hammock, always check the branches above where you are anchoring the hammock to make sure that there are no “Deadfall” branches or trunks caught in nearby trees that may fall and injure you when napping or sleeping during the night.

There is an element of risk in any adventure, sport, or activity associated with the outdoors. Red Fox has taken reasonable steps to provide you with a quality product so that you can enjoy your hammock; however the activity is not without risk. If you are unwilling to accept the risk associated with use of this hammock, please contact Red Fox Wireless at support@RedFoxWireless.com within 10 days of purchase to arrange return and store credit for the value of your hammock purchase.
