It's time to install your swing.
We are so glad you are here!
By now, you have your swing and want to hang it up so your child can start
enjoying all the benefits that come from swinging. Well, you're in the right place.
No need to have advanced handyman knowledge to be able to hang your swing-
just a few tools, and a few minutes!
Follow the instructions below to install your outdoor swing.
Find your location
We recommend finding a branch that is at least 4-6 inches in diameter on a healthy tree (no dead branches please). The more level the branch the better.
You can also hang your swing from a beam, stud or swing set.
1. Pre-drill hole
Attach a 1/4 inch drill bit into the drill and drill a hole clockwise in the center of the beam. We think eyes are pretty amazing so we recommend sporting some sweet protective glasses while you do this.
2. Screw in the eye bolt
Twist the eye bolt into the hole that you just made, after a few turns you will need to use the screw driver for a little extra oomph. Use those muscles and continue to turn the screw until the threads are not visible. If you have a dual suspension repeat this step about 16-24 inches away.
3. Hang the swing
Your swing is fully assembled and ready to hang so at this point let's test it all out.
Hook the swing up and give it a strong pull to make sure everything is secure. Enjoy your swing!
1. Hang up the tree straps
Wrap your tree strap around the tree or branch. There are a few ways to do this and if you are having trouble, reach out and we are happy to coach you through it.
2. Hang the swing
Your swing is ready to hang! Your swing is fully assembled and ready to hang out of the box simple pick up the hardware and pull the slip knots out.
3. Test and Adjust
Give the ropes a sturdy tug to ensure a strong connection. You may need to adjust the ropes. You can do this by adjust the 4 knots below the dowels either up if you need to raise the height of the swing or down if you need to lower the swing. If the height is right make sure that the front and back bars are level. If they are not you can adjust the knots to level them.
Congrats!! You did it!
Remember to regularly look your set up over.
