A porch hammock swing can give you freedom and comfort in a full size hammock in a small amount of space. You can hang a hammock chair from any rugged surface, including a porch, patio or deck. But make sure to assemble it properly. It is important to choose a fixed surface from which you can hang the chair. And then find a strong overhead bar on your deck, porch or patio. Measure the toggle bolt to your hammock chair and drill a pilot hole sized to fit that bolt. Close the arms of the toggle bolt. Insert the toggle bolt into the pilot hole until it clicks into place. Attach an S-hook to the toggle bolt. Attach another S hook to the eye of the mounting hook for the porch hammock swing chair.
Measure the distance from the place where you hang the porch hammock swing chair to the ground. Target up from the ground and determine the optimal height hammock chair when seated. And then measure the height of the hammock chair and use it to calculate the length of the chain required. For example, if there are 10 feet of space between hanging mail and ground, you want the hammock chair to hang 2 feet from the ground and the hammock is 3 feet high, use a 5 meter long chain.
Cut a chain to the correct length, or buy a length of chain already cut. It is a good idea to buy a chain a little longer than you think you will need. This allows you to adjust the chain by changing the link you put through the hook. Put one end of the chain or rope to the S-hook on the toggle bolt. Put the other end of the S-hook to the hanging bar on the porch hammock swing chair.
