|The things dangling off the board on the left are spring links. |
They are what we use to hook up the sensory swings.
2X6 board long enough to hit at least 2 tresses
Large Eye Hook Screws (2)
Carriage Bolts (4)
Find at least 2 studs in your ceiling and drill a hole slightly smaller than then the carriage bolts that you'll be using. Make sure they are long enough to go through the 2X6, sheet rock, and into the tress. I believe ours was 3 inches although it might have been a 1/4 to a 1/2 inch longer. We put two on each side but you can do it by only putting in one. We wanted ours really secure so this is what my husband did. Once the 2X6 is securely screwed in with the carriage bolts then you can screw in some thick eye hooks. You want them big enough to put a clip through and durable enough not to bend under your child's weight or any movement (bouncing, rocking, swinging, climbing) they may do on the swing. Then test it AGAIN before you allow your children on it.
