Possible Cat Hammock Stand

Ok guys, just to be clear, I am not some crazy cat man, I'm talking about rigging a hammock stand to my cat frame.
I am thinking of using these, which are the same as the umbrella mount from DRE and some tubing. I am envisioning two clamps, and about 8ft of tubing per side, at some angle around 45 degrees or so.
What do you guys think?
the Hollaender website says its axial load strength it 2000lbs or so, which is slightly less than what I weigh.

I have been thinking of doing that exact thing on our raft- I think I could actually get two side by side. That's one of my winter projects.

I saw a pic I think on the raft porn thread. It's a great idea (I think). And something I have been considering as well. I was thinking about lo pros that I would leave in place with PTO pins through the pipe so I could easily remove for the day. No tool required.

yeah, pins would be necessary for safety and for my set up.

Already commercially available, though maybe not for the weight thresholds you are describing

Here you go. Remember that the load on those bars is a lot more than just your weight, but less than 2000 lb.

Thoughts, instead of the lower aluminum tubing bar, how about another cam strap with eye bolts similar to the top hammock connections?
