How to Hang a Porch Swing

It’s worth time and effort to properly hang your porch swing.  Doing it right will help insure that your porch swing gives you years of safe and comfortable enjoyment.

We recommend that you through-bolt your swing to your porch ceiling.  That means drilling through support beams, placing eyebolts through the holes and fastening the bolts with washers and lock nuts.   Then use ‘S’ hooks to hang the chains supplied with your porch swing.

Hang your porch swing so that the front edge is about 17-18 inches from the floor, that way you can “rock” your porch swing with your feet.  Position the porch swing so that you have at least two feet of space behind the swing and 18 inches to the swing sides.

All of our porch swings are supplied with standard hanging hardware.  If you need something special for your particular porch, we suggest sourcing it from a local Ace or True Value hardware store where you also find advice and contacts for local handymen to hang your porch swing, if need be.
