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
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.
