Step 3: Fasten for 1 last update 2020/05/31 seat slats, arm supports, arms, and bottom support as shown above.Step 3: Fasten seat slats, arm supports, arms, and bottom support as shown above.

Step 4: Mount the ceiling supports on rafters or floor joists above your swing. Depending on the amount of weight you want your swing to support, you can use lag screws and swing swivels screwed vertically into the joists. But for optimal safety, we recommend through-bolting to 2x6 blocking. Over time, a lag screw can loosen—a through-bolted connection never will.

Step 5: Install swing hangers and mounting hardware on the swing. To estimate your chain length, test-hang the swing using rope.

Step 6: Take the swing down, cut the chain to length, and install.

Step 7: Get swinging.
