How to install a hammock

To hang it indoors, you will need a rack finder or a magnet to locate the ceiling beam. Hang the extension spring from the ceiling support and hook the suspension chair onto it.


Just wrap the rope around the beam or branch, adjust the length

of the rope, and then hang the chair. Simply attach an S-shaped hook or large

hook loop (make sure it has the correct capacity) to hang the chair. Yes, you

can use nail detectors and drills to hang the hammock on the ceiling, and

install eyebolts on the ceiling to fix the top of the chair.


When hanging

a hammock chair, you just need a minimum height and one overhead

suspension point, such as branches, beams, or fixed ceiling hooks. For higher

ceilings, you will need an approved rope or chain for additional hammocks. If

you are going to put something in a concrete or brick wall, you will need

special screws or bolts for concrete set at the correct height from which you

can attach a hammock or rope. It's also worth mentioning that nail detectors

don't work on popcorn ceilings, so you may need to measure out 16 inches to

find a beam and then use a thin nail and hammer to see if it hits the wood.


In a hammock (without struts) suspended from a stand, you

usually lie slightly lower than when you hang the hammock yourself. A hammock

with struts is usually a little more unstable than without.


A hammock with struts can be pulled fairly tight in the holder

(so it shouldn't hang in a crescent shape). If you have a hammock without

struts, it may be shaped like a crescent moon. Most hammock rocking chairs have

a brace that distributes the weight evenly and only requires one attachment

point to support it.


Adjust the length of the chain or rope to make the swing hang at

a comfortable height. Depending on what comes with your swing or chair and your

personal aesthetics, you may want to hang the swing on a chain or rope. All you

need to do is to connect the rope or chain on the top of the hammock chair to

the carabiner or S-hook spring hanging on the top of the hammock.


Basically, similar to hanging from trees or walls, you can use

tree straps or place hammock hooks directly on poles and stretch ropes or

chains from them to the hammock. Installing a hammock to the ceiling is similar

to installing a hammock to a wall and can be done with sturdy hooks and ropes.


Read on and you will get the right way to hang your swing

hammock from a ceiling, tree, beam, ceiling, porch, beam, or gazebo. A rocking

chair in a hammock is extremely versatile because it can be hung in many

different ways.


Installing a new hammock chair indoors or outdoors is quite easy

compared to other types of hammocks because it requires less space and you can

hang it with a single attachment point. It doesn't matter if you want to enjoy

a beach seat under a tree, or want to warm up in your room with the feeling of

rocking on a gazebo, installing a hammock chair is easy. Our hammock chairs can

be installed anywhere with a ceiling of at least 7 feet and several feet on all

sides to provide a relaxing swing.


A good hanging accessory option for this setup is our set of

hammock chains and hooks. For this, you can use something like eyelets and

hooks or our hammock hanging kit. Then simply set the hook to the desired

height (see Space Requirements above to determine the height) and attach it

with a rope or chain to the hammock.


This can be very dangerous if the hammock hook is not firm or

fixed in the correct way. If your hammock chair requires you to use a rope knot

to hang it, if you still don’t know how to tie a safety knot, it’s best to use

a carabiner or chain. The special hammock strap allows you to connect and

remove trees easily and quickly without complicated knots.


Make sure the hammock is directly under the rope loops on the

tree branch. When everything is set up the way you want, tie two half knots

around the hammock loop, harness kit, S-hook or carabiner. Thread the rope

through the ends of the hammock ring or pendant, slide the ring up, keeping the

rope taut, and end with two half-inch knots just below the branch. Wrap the

rope around the tree at least twice to create 2 suspension points to distribute

the weight evenly.


Attach one end of the cable to the seat harness and the other

end of the cable to the S-hook or eyebolt carabiner. Then attach the S-hook

through the eyebolt ring and attach the swivel, spring or chair suspension kit

to the S-hook and secure the chair. Find the pin, attach the ceiling mount,

attach the swivel to the spring, attach the chain or rope, and attach the chair

with the carabiner.


If you want to hang your hammock chair indoors and don't have an

S-spring, chain or carabiner of the right weight and length, take your time.

You just need to find a sturdy tree branch in your yard and by following the

steps below on how to hang your hanging chair from the tree you are ready to

go. If you hang it outside, you will need a tree branch that is at least 6

inches in diameter and at least 6 feet above the ground to support your weight.


It's also a little easier to hang, as it only requires one

attachment point. You can lie in a hammock with struts, so it will take up less

space when using it. Unlike a hammock, a hanging chair does not have to be

exactly the same size.


If you expect your chair to support heavier people (over 200

pounds), you can do a little more research before hanging the chair from a

single beam. The weight that a ceiling beam can support depends on many factors

(how strong the beam is, whether the weight is in the center of the beam in

relation to the edge, how much weight the beam already holds, etc.), so you

should want to make sure your beam is sufficient sturdy before hanging the



It takes a lot of force to insert the screw hook into the beam.

This is perfect because if I strategically drill a few holes in the ceiling, I

will know exactly where the hammock is hanging so that it rests on the beam. I

know that the hammock must be hung from the beam of the ceiling, but I think it

is almost impossible to find it through the plaster and wood ceiling.
