@boygenius1991 tragically, this hammock does not support 450 pounds or even close to it. I’m well under this weight limit and even with the eyehooks lifting the hammock as high as possible, when attempting to lie in it, my back is scraping the floor and driving the metal bar into my back. do not recommend.
If you check it every day… And clearly you’d have to do something with them which will probably result in death anyway… tossing them out in the woods is iffy. Feel free to adopt them. If you don’t check it they die after a day or two and the next one tries to eat them. Which is a little icky to clean out. They are pests and plenty of them so.
@unksol I live in the boonies and mice in the house are extremely common. That said, I do befriend some to my spouses lament! I used to be afraid of mice until a couple of years ago when I got up to make a pot of coffee and lo and behold! There’s a big one on the counter ledge holding a mouse trap eating the peanutbutter and seeds attached to it and it never tripped the trap! It looked up at me and stared a minute and then went back to eating. I was amazed and awed. I was so proud of a mouse that had was such a survivor I decided to get a cage and keep it. My husband killed it the next day. But…we still get a lot of mice in the house and I take pleasure sometimes in seeing them now. I just don’t tell my husband when I see one.
@phendrick Because mice are people too and all peoples matter. Can’t starve them. This is a socialist country and it would be against law. All aminals is more important than peoples. Especially baby peoples.
I thought the random scalp of red hair hanging out was a little creepy… Then I went through the pics… And the guys head turned to shiny metal. Oh wait that’s a sloth. Either way. Thanks for the nightmares meh
We have a very similar stand (with what looks like the exact same hammock) and they are fantastic! So much so that we bought 2 a while back for closer to $70 each. The stand is easy enough to move by one person if you grab it in the middle on the bottom. If I didn’t have a couple already I’d definitely get one of these!
99.9999% of the time I come I to the Meh product thread hoping to find useful info but all I find are bad puns that don’t even qualify as dad jokes. But not today, today there are actually lots of helpful posts.
@daniellemicaela Not everything is sold out - just on pause. It will open up again at 4 eastern. Someone did post that the hammock with stand is sold out though so you’d still be able to get a hammock.
Well, I received my hammock today. The box is definitely marked “Island” but the included hammock is none of the colors listed on the sale page. Except for one of the preview images… there is a photo of a black, brown, white, and gray striped hammock with a woman sitting in it…That’s the actual color I received.
Anyone else received theirs yet? I did pay for upgraded shipping over my membership free shipping.
Welp, even worse than I thought! Two of the sections of the frame have been damaged. The end of the pipe is flattened / bent inwards enough that it will not allow the smaller diameter tube to be inserted to assemble half of the frame.
What I thought was going to be the least “meh” purchase I’ve made off of this site… Got me!
@dougolas I received mine today. The box was in bad condition and filled with the little caps that go on the end of bolts - which were not necessary. It took a little work figuring it out (instructions useless) but we got it together over lunch break.
@dougolas smilar issue. Completely wrong color like you say.
Box was damaged. Didn’t include any bolts, connectors, etc. The hammock itself also doesn’t include the reinforced metal grip. Just completely horrible. Not what was pictured. Also didn’t inclhded any instructions, pamphlets, etc.
@gc3024 dang at least mine came with the 4 screws and rubber and caps. I didn’t mention in my email to meh, but my order also lacked a metal reinforcement /support ring. Sucks that we all had similar issues
@dougolas I got screws at least too, they were in a cinched closed dark green parachute/nylon drawstring bag for some reason, and there was another plastic bag in the box but nothing in it. Single sheet parts list/example of it fully setup. Clearly was an open box previously judging by the tape and state of the contents. Did have all my caps though too, which was surprising given the gaping hole in the side of the box where one of the feet tubes punched through entirely at some point. No metal support rings either though on the hammock.
@dougolas Oh no! I just submitted a ticket for this same problem. I also didn’t get the extra rainbow hammock I ordered. I’m super bummed. Would definitely have not ordered/paid money for the color I got.
Some of my pipes look out of round. They all have weld seams inside. The paint is thicc. Some of it chipped off so I could see how thicc it was. I’ve only been able to join two pieces so far. I’m going to have wire wheel some of the paint off and try again. On the bright side, i was reluctant to buy one of these because i thought it might be too light. This thing is definitely heavy duty.
Ours bent and creased along the long bar across the bottom if the holder. If I could figure out how to attach a picture I would. I contacted customer service. The hammock send to be okay, I like that it came with its own pouch. The case for the stand was ripped.
I was so excited when I ordered one of these to surprise my wife with, but then I saw it shipped Pitney Bowes. At least now I know when it arrives in 2021 I’ll have time to save up money for the costly ER visit when it bends and collapses under her until then.
@RiotDemon Maybe but their shipping is seriously screwed up. Ordered something from Morningsave on July 30 which doesn’t even show it was shipped yet and got it today. Also ordered something from Morningsave on July 27th which was in LA on July 30th and also got it today.
@Felton10 Yeah, the tracker on Meh’s site says it arrived at my local USPS facility on Aug 1. The USPS tracker says it’s on its way to said facility (but not received and this isn’t our problem) also on August 1. Woo!
anyone have any tips on putting this thing together? I was able to fit 2 pieces of the base together but can’t get either upright support to attach despite half a can of wd40 and 220 lbs of elbow grease
Mine hasn’t even been shipped yet, but looks like I’m not missing out. Frustrated because Woot had a similar one on sale a few days later (for a bit more) and now wish I had order that one, but didn’t because I thought I was getting one from Meh.
I really hope Meh can go back and get their money from whomever they purchased these from so we can get our money back. Seems like a major quality control issue with whomever they wholesaled these from.
Got mine today after it toured the whole US. From TX to GA to CA back to TX and finally FL, only to have have my 7yr old asked why I ordered the “poop brown”. I didn’t, I ordered the Island, poop brown wasn’t even an option!
So the first one was a dream to assemble! Set it up and I was in heaven! The second had tubes that barely fit together and the holes for the screws were poorly drilled. Once assembled, though, they are awesome!!!
I got poop brown instead of blue. That was unfortunate. I loved it the three times I was able to lie in before the middle bar bent and snapped. Now I’m just happy I didn’t get impales. First Meh purchase I regret making.
Pretty happy with this. I was momentarily confused by the instructions’ reference to a non-existent picture, but once I figured out the hooks go on the outside, it was fine. Got the color I asked for too AND a couple of extra bolts.
@dam091 UPDATE: Support responded to my inquiry and refunded the cost. They said if it eventually arrives, keep it for free. It arrived the next day. So, score, and awesome customer service! Thanks meh! I think I will take some candy corn now!
Finally… I purchased a full set (hammock and stand) and also just an additional hammock (with no stand).
By tracking date, it all started on July 27. Both items got ‘inducted’ in the Pitney Bowes Network on July 30th.
The full hammock set got here on August 8th.
The 2nd hammock (w/o stand) got here today, August 21.
Bizarre… I’ve been a VMP since October 2016, and this is the worst shipping experience I’ve had… and really only one of the few I’ve had where stuff just seemed to ‘disappear’.
I had already emailed meh support about this, and they said give it another week and then write back for refund… was going to get that refund today… only to be shocked and surprised when I saw the damn hammock was out for delivery today…
Ah well… back to drinking all that wine I’ve been buying on Casemates…
It’s now a race to get here between my Meh bag that I ordered on August 19th (that hasn’t shipped yet,) and this hammock I ordered on July 25th. The race is over on the other things I ordered on August 19th. Those things are at my local post office.
The hammock was in my city 18 days ago, but was sent back to Texas. Meh support told me last week not to worry because it’s already on the way to my house. :rolleyes:
I ordered on July 25th and still haven’t received it on August 26th. It bounced back and forth between Texas and California until August 19th when it stopped in California and has supposedly stayed there since. I’ve just emailed and asked for a refund. We’ll see what happens. Totally ridiculous!
I’ve been issued a refund, either it’s lost or destroyed. How does a company like Meh.com accept this from their shipping company? This is the second and last order from them that has been lost. I can’t continue to shop here.
Mine finally arrived after bouncing around between Texas and California (and I’m so close to Texas, the nearby towns have asked to just be considered Texas). We’ll put it together tomorrow, but we did open it to see how bad the items were - I actually received the color I ordered which was not poop brown, and the frame seems solid. Even the “handles” on the screws look different than the ones in the photo about this. Maybe I lucked out and got a good batch?
Additional experiential dispatches to arrive later!
Hey! I got an email that mine was delivered! It’s been a month and a half, but okay, I’ll take it. Wait, where was it delivered? Back to Texas?! Seriously, meh? I mean, I get that your name is literally “Meh”, but seriously not cool on this one.
Small comfort that I’m not the only one, I suppose.
