How to Hang a Hammock Chair Indoors DYI Tips


HANGING GUIDE


It’s time to relax and kick back! A hammock swing chair is extremely versatile because it can be hung in lots of different ways. Some prefer to use a traditional hammock chair stand or a tree branch, however one of the beauties of a hammock chair is that it can be hung from any ceiling. 


Do not be afraid, hanging a hammock chair indoors is a very simple process and we will guide you from start to finish.
Most hammock swing chairs have a spreader bar that distributes weight evenly, and will only need 1 anchor point for support.


💡 Once you find your spot at home, make sure that there is enough space for you and your swing to move freely.

    STEP 1
    Find a sturdy beam on the ceiling by using a stud finder. Make sure you use a pencil to mark both sides of the joist. It is extremely important that you drill into the middle of the joist or beam.

    (Skip this step for concrete ceiling)
     
     
    STEP 2.
     Drill holes on the dry wall/beam or concrete. 


     
    STEP 3:
    Install the ceiling mount using the 4 bolts or screws, depending on the surface. 

    💡 : We strongly recommend a ceiling mount vs a simple eye hook because it will provide a stronger anchor point. 

     



    STEP 4:
    Attach 1 spring hooks to the ceiling mount and hang the chain. Adjust chain to the desired height. (can be double chained or single depending on the weight it will bear).
     
     
     
    STEP 5:
    Attach 1 spring hook or S hook to the other end of the chain and then hang your hammock chair. (either one works great!).

    Note: Your Limbo Imports hammock swing has a reinforced steel eye that will give it extra security and stability.

    STEP 6:
    Test your installation. Gradually, shift your weight from feet to the chair. If it holds you, it means you have done the right installation of the hammock chair. Ideally, your hammock swing chair should be at least 3 feet away from the floor.  Do not leave small children unattended.
