Hanging hammock chairs are great units to have in your compound. The cool thing is that you can easily install them.
How to Hang a Hanging Hammock Chair
There are many ways in which you can install the unit. If you are planning of installing the unit on exposed wooden beams such as patio cover, gazebo or ceiling, you are on the lucky side as you won’t have to look for beams thus you will have an easy time hanging the unit.
All you need to do is to install the hook into the center of the beam until only the curved part of the hook is exposed. You should then hang a chain from the hook and suspend the unit from the chain using an “S” hook. For ideal results you should leave about 6″ of chain hanging free.
If you are going to install the hanging hammock chair on hidden wooden beams or rafters such as porches and ceilings, you should start by locating the hidden beams by tapping them lightly on the ceiling.
You should locate the center of the beam and install the unit as you would when installing it on the exposed wooden beams.
Are you planning of installing the unit on cement or adobe ceiling? You should start by drilling a hole into the cement and then apply an adhesive mixture into it. You should then insert a lead plug into the hole and tap it lightly with a hammer.
Finally, you should screw a straight hook into the lead plug and allow the adhesive to cure.
How to Take Care of the Hanging Hammock Chair
Care starts from the moment when you are hanging the unit. When hanging the unit always ensure that the loops and suspension arms are straight.
You also need to regularly wash the unit. There are two ways you can clean the unit: hand and machine. To clean the units you need to remove the seat from the bar and tie the ends together in order to prevent tangling. You should then wash the hanging hammock chair, rinse, and hang it to dry.
To avoid injuring yourself you should regularly inspect all the points of suspension and attachment for any signs of wear. If you notice anything unusual you should discontinue using the unit.
