2. 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.

3. 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.

Congrats!! You did it!

If installing a dual suspension swing or a Grow With Me swing, repeat steps 1-3 for the second eye screw.  Make sure the second hole is located 15-24" from the first screw and located on a stud.  

After hanging the swing, give it a strong tug to ensure the swing is securely in the ceiling studs.

I live in an apartment, can I hang the swing?

Most building are constructed with studs and drywall. Some are concrete and in that case you will need special mounting hardware. As for hanging something up it depends on your lease. It usually falls into the same category as hanging pictures on the wall. If in doubt reach out to your landlord.

I have textured ceilings, what should I do?

A little trick we have learned is to take a piece of paper and put that between the ceiling and stud finder. This will allow it to glide along easier.

I can't find a stud, what should I do?

We recommend checking your batteries. Sometimes it is easiest to test the stud finder on a wall. Studs are typically about 16- 24 inches apart and run the same direction across the ceiling. We do not recommend guessing. If you do not hang your swing in a stud it is not safe and will fail the "pull" test that should be used before putting a child in the swing.

Can the swings be used outdoors?

One of the things that people love about our swings is that you can move them around just by unclipping them. You can take our indoor swings outside to enjoy for the day however the wood is not treated and the fabric is not fade resistant so it will not hold up to the exposure of being left outside.

My swing is too long/ too short, can I adjust the height?

Yes! By adjusting the knots up or down on all 4 ropes you can change the level of your swing. We are happy to coach you through this. Reach out if you have questions.

How long can my baby use the swing?

There are too many baby items out there that our kids liked for literally days. I mean days I could count on fingers and sometimes toes. We didn't want more products in our homes that fit that category. Our swings can be used for years and can easily be relocated as your schedules and rythmes change and your the child in your life grows. If you are looking for stats our swings can be used by kids up to 55 lbs for Low Backs and High backs and 65 lbs for the Grow with Me.
