Shop the Round Hanging Chair.
What you will need:
- A Drill
- Stud finder
- Screw eye
- Locking carabiner
- Chain or rope, pre-measured
All of these items you can find at your local hardware store and most hanging chairs come with a rope pre-measured for length and weight.
- Locate the joist.
Locate a ceiling joist in the area where you want to hang your chair. If you’re installing the chair on your porch, find a joist or use a stud finder to locate one that can handle the weight of a person and the chair’s weight together. Once found, mark the centre of the joist and drill a 3-inch hole. An ideal place would be in the middle of the beam to evenly distribute the weight.
- Install screw eye
- Hook a rope or chain
Attach a strong, thick rope or a rust-proof chain through the carabiner or the screw (most hanging chairs will come with a suitable rope). If you are using a chain, make a simple loop with the ends through the carabiner. Ropes are also a great option, but make sure they are strong enough to hold your weight and the knots are tied securely, we recommend tying 3 knots.
- Test the chair
