How do I get into the hammock chair perch?
Back up closely to the front of the hammock chair. Gather some netting and hold close to the back of knees while sitting down. Some adjustments to the netting may be necessary to maximize chair comfort. (ie, stretching net out to recline with feet up)

How do I get out of the hammock chair perch?
Turn and face the tree or structure holding the bracket. With feet on the ground, take 3-4 steps backwards as the hammock will slowly support you to a standing position automatically. Easy!

Which is the front/back of the hammock chair?
The back side is where the netting is higher. (The lower side is the front). Once ready, just clip the hammock chair onto your Pelican Perch.

What kind of knot do I tie?
Since the Perched Pelican is portable, a slip-knot is recommended for set-up, to facilitate easy removal after use.

How do I tie a slipknot?
It’s similar to tying a bow in your shoelace. Leaving a loop in the knot allows it to be untied easily, even after there has been the weight of a person hanging in it. Again, see the detailed knot-tying instructions on the HOMEPAGE of this website.

How small/large a tree can I perch from?
We recommend trees from 3” diameter to 23” diameter. However, larger trees can be accommodated by getting an extension rope to encircle the tree.

How long does it take to set-up the Pelican Perch?
After a little practice, you will be up and “perched” in about a minute. Please refer to the set-up instruction videos on our HOMEPAGE.
Where are these brackets made?
We custom make each bracket by hand right here in the USA!

Can I leave my perch and chair up all season?
Yes, you can, because the wooden dowels have been coated with 2 layers of polyurethane. However, the perch is easily set and taken down, so you will extend the life of your perch if you keep it out of extreme weather elements.

Will the rope stretch with age?
No, it will not stretch. Only the highest quality polyester cordage is used to manufacture Perched Pelican products.
