Instructions for baby and toddler canvas swing
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. If you purchase directly from us we can also organsie to make the ropes longer, which may have an additional small cost. Please email us if you require this service.
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
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.
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 hight 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).
Hanging instructions for child swing and board swing
Swings can be mounted in doorways or/and on beams, ceiling joists, verandas, pergolas and swing stands or the like. Screw 2 screw eyes or eyebolts approx. 500mm apart with the holes in the eyes facing forward. It is important to have the eyes facing forward because then the carbine hook will roll and not grind in the eye. Having the ropes going wider apart as they go up helps the swing to swing strait. Adjust the height with the sliding ropelocks. The swings can be hung from a height of 3 meters without extension ropes
Check the ropes, hooks and eyes regularly for wear and tear. The sun gradually breaks down the fiber in all rope. A safety surface under the swing is recommended.
The ropes provided for baby and toddler swing can reach 2.3m and child swings 3m. If you want to hang them higher you will need extension ropes.
You can purchase extension ropes to order from us please contact us.
