Hanging instructions Baby Toddler Swing

The baby and toddler swing can be mounted in doorways or/and on beams, ceiling joists, verandas, pergolas and swing stands or the like. Screw 2 screw-eyes approx. 500mm apart. To have the screw-eyes wider apart than the swing itself makes it swing straight.

Make sure the holes in the eyes are facing forward so the carbine hook rolls in the eye instead of grinding.

Adjust the height with the sliding ropelocks.

This swing can be hung from, up to a height of 2.3 metres in the Baby mode,where you can pop them in and out easily and 2.3 metres in the toddler mode closer to the ground, without extension ropes. (note this is the hanging height not the length of the ropes) For any higher extension ropes will be needed.

Check the ropes, knots and attachments regularly for evidence of deterioration and replace if weakened. The sun breaks down all rope fibres over time. A safety surface under the swing is recommended. Do not hang over concrete, asphalt or any other hard surface.

6 months to 6 years

The baby and toddler swing is suitable for a baby from when it can sit upright unaided (approximately 6 months) to 6 years old or 40 kg/88 lbs. Always support your baby well with cushions etc. until your baby grows into the swing. Please remember a young baby should always be swung gently. Always use the safety belt. Only use under adult supervision.

Converting Instructions

When your child is over the age of 3 the baby and toddler swing can be converted to a toddler version by undoing the leg divider and doming it around the strap under the swing (see picture). adjust the height with the sliding rope-locks so the swing will hang 350-450 mm/14"-18" above the floor or ground. This enables your child to get in unaided by sliding the front bar up, sitting in and sliding the bar down again.

Baby and toddler swing can now be used as long as your child fits in,  approximately 6 years depending on the size of the child (inside measurement 260x260x260)

Where can I hang a swing?

There are many choices for hanging your swing either indoors or outdoors. You will need to be sure that the point of hanging is strong enough for the weight to be used in the swing and there is enough space around the swing for it to operate safely. With the appropriate hardware your swing may be hung from timber, concrete or a tree. Popular choices are inside from the ceiling, verandas, pergolas, trees and existing swing frames. Having a swing in your living room is always great for family entertainment. 

How can I hang my swing from a tree?

It is important to make sure that the branch you would like to hang the swing from is strong enough to take the weight of the person and the force of swinging. The branch needs to be horizontal to the ground so the swing will swing straight. Solvej Tree Hangers make it easy to hang your swing. Always check the hanging height to ground to make sure the ropes are long enough for the position. Contact Solvej directly to purchase Tree Hangers.

Where can I hang my swing inside?

Inside you will need to hang it from a strong structural point in the ceiling, a beam, rafter or door frame. The safest way is to use 2 stainless steel screw eyes in and clip the swing to these using the stainless steel carbine clips that come with the swing. For specific installation instructions see your swing instructions.
