How to Hang a Hammock Chair
The beauty of a hammock chair is that you don’t need to search your garden for two trees that are the right distance apart. It can be hung from just about anything, as long as it can take the weight and there is enough room to swing.
The important considerations are:
- Whatever you attach your hammock chair to must be able to take the weight of at least 120kg, the load capacity of the hammock
- The height of the fixing from the floor must be not less than 2.2m. Anything less will have you scraping the floor.
- At least 1m space is needed behind and to the sides of the hammock to allow you to swing and spin.
- To attach your hammock chair to a branch or arbour loop a heavy rope over the limb and attach with an ‘S’ hook, making sure the ‘S’ hook and chain are strong enough.
To attached your hammock to a ceiling joist or beam use select the hammock chair plus fixing option which comes with a ball mounted hook, carabiner, chain and screws, that gives a drop of up to 78cm.
