Trunk Straps Have Arrived
Grand Trunk takes hammock suspension systems to new heights
Skokie, IL — (May 27, 2015) –Grand Trunk is pleased to unveil the brand’s much-anticipated Trunk Straps, making hanging easier and safer for hammock enthusiasts and trees everywhere. Trunk Straps bring a new and improved suspension system in six bold color options to complement the brand’s award winning line of hammocks.
Hammocking keeps gaining popularity, with adventurers taking hammocks to new heights and vistas like never before. “Trunk Straps offers an advanced suspension system that allows freedom and the ability to get creative with your hanging out,” says Belinda Neff, brand marketing director with Grand Trunk. “From perches suspended under bridges over lazy rivers or strung up between two palm trees, Trunk Straps promote a safer, more user and trunk-friendly system.”
Trunk Straps feature a 10-foot daisy chain made from static, polyester webbing that allows hammockers to safely and easily hang from nearly any anchor point. PU coating adds colorfastness, water repellency and protects tree trunks from abrasion. 18 color contrasting, triple-stitched loops deliver 36 different adjustment points for a heightened, more reliable hammocking experience.
