1. Temporary setup with swing straps – take the swing anywhere you go!
If you prefer not to install the baby swing permanently, swing straps are the perfect solution for temporary installation – plus, you can take the swing with you anywhere you go! The swing straps allow the swing to be installed without using any bolts, tools, screwing and unscrewing. You simply wrap the straps around a tree branch, the frame of a playground swing set, a beam on your terrace or porch, or anywhere you want really!
Swing Straps for easy temporary instalment – can be purchased separately.
You can also use the swing rope and carabiner/snap hook (included with your swing purchase) to temporarily secure the swing to a tree branch, beam, etc. Please note that this will speed up the deterioration of the rope and shouldn’t be used for permanent fixing.
2. Attach the swing to an existing swing set
The swing comes with carabiners which can be attached to any securely fixed bolt, hook or ring and are easily removed once finished using. It only takes a second to install the swing at an existing swing set.
3. Permanent installation using hardware
To create a semi-permanent dock in your house or backyard, all you need is a pair of eyehooks that can be purchased from any hardware store. This is what we refer to as the “permanent” fixture (but even this can be removed!)
If you would like to install the swing permanently in your house or backyard, it will have to be attached to a stronger beam – like a wooden doorway, ceiling joists, or the top beam of a swing set/play set.
For example, indoors, the swing can be installed in a doorway and with the use of carabiners, the swing can be easily removed when not in use so it won’t affect the everyday use of the doorway.
