The easiest way to support your Paradise hammock from brickwork, concrete or stone walls is to fix in a M8 expansion bolt (not suitable for cement block type walls unless reinforced).
The most commonly available expansion bolt is the M8. To fix the bolt you will need a hammer action power drill, a 12mm and a 4-6mm masonry drill bit. If you are drilling into brickwork you should first locate the centre of the brick, as this is the strongest part.
Once you have marked where your fixing point is going to be drill a small pilot hole with the 4-6mm drill bit and then enlarge it with the 12mm bit to accommodate the Rawlhook. Ensure that the Rawlhook has not already been expanded, tap it into the hole and turn it until it is tight.
Attach the nautical rope to the hammock hooks and fixing points and set desired height.
Once attached, ease your weight onto the hammock and recheck the bolt ? it will probably need to be retightened. Repeat this operation a few times until the bolt is firmly secure.
