This under-desk hammock lets you take a nap at work

Most of us can admit that we've almost fallen asleep at our desks at least once. Or worse, it's actually happened. Sometimes, even multiple expressos won't see you through the last hour of your shift, which can feel like it's ticking by slower than a day in jail.

But now, you can embrace the fact that sometimes things get a bit too much at the office with your own handy desk hammock. Perfect if you're unlucky enough to work late, or simply want to catch some zzz's on your lunch break (we ain't judging).

Manufactured by Uplift Desk, the Under Desk Hammock was designed with the band's desks in mind. However, as you can see, it would be easily useable with a number of other standard office desks too. Simply clip the carabiners in and enjoy a well-earned rest.

To install the carabiners, you will need to use a hex wrench to install the anchor plates that come as standard with the brand's UPLIFT V2 frame.

At this point, it's worth noting that in an office situation, it can hold a maximum weight of 200lbs, but when used as a normal hammock, it can hold up to 400lbs.

The brand has even created a simple step-by-step tutorial to make using and installing the hammock a breeze:

As the video above demonstrates, the hammock is best used with an Uplift Desk because its height can be adjusted electronically, meaning that you won't be too close to the floor while chilling.

Available in two colors, grey and blue, the hammock is also a must-have for anyone who is looking to ditch their incessant (and most likely expensive) coffee habit.

What do you think? Is it the office solution you didn't know you needed, or will you be sticking with a cup of Joe?
