Ideas To Hang Red Porch Swing
Red porch swing is a great place to go talk to a friend, read a book or see what is happening in the neighborhood. Everyone likes the gentle swing and tranquility of a porch swing. But before installing the swing, you must make sure that the support beam is strong enough to support the weight of the swing and the people in it. After that, the installation is not very difficult and yo can do it by only one person.
Measure to put the red porch swing. You will need at least 2 1/2 feet of walls and rails to swing. More room better. Bolts or hooks should be placed at least 1 to 2 inches out from the swing. So a 6-foot swing would have the bolts between 6 feet and 2 inches and 6 feet, 4 inches. Pre-holes in the support beam to keep the division wood. Then, screw eyelets or large hooks.
Then, place the red porch swing chains on the hooks on the beam. There will be a single string going down. About halfway down, there will be two channels, one for the rear swing arm and the upper arm front. The oscillation will have two sets of eye bolts installed in the arms. Install the eyebolts on the chains on the front and back of the arms. Adjust the chains if you feel the oscillation is too low by placing one more link in the eye the bolts on the arms.
