What to Use in Hanging a Hammock Chair
- Universal Hammock Chair Stand. Universal stands for hammock chairs are easy to install, lightweight enough for easy transfer, and has a heavy-duty steel construction for an ensured support. You can also read this complete hammock swing stand reviews if you want!
- Hammock Straps. These straps are usually made from nylon, polyester, or iron material and they are durable to be attached to any strong horizontal base.
- Ceiling Swivel Hook. This heavy-duty hanger is ideal to be used in a concrete ceiling or wooden beam if you don’t have a hammock chair stand. It can swivel in a 360-degree rotation and is very secure and smooth.
- Chair Spring. This spring comes in iron, stainless, or zinc-plated steel that is very useful in chain extension or as added support to a hammock chair stand.
How Do You Hang a Hammock Chair indoors?
Here are the common ways of how to hang a hammock chair:
- Using a C-stand. Attach the eyebolt to the S-hook of the hammock stand and test if you agree to the direction of your movement. Adjust as necessary.
- Inside the room. Use a swivel hook and drill the shield anchors to the concrete ceiling or the stainless screws to the wooden ceiling and attach the eyebolt of the hammock chair to the hook. Be sure that the anchors are tightly screwed and regularly check on the loose bolts to avoid accidents.
Which Is A Better Way To Hang A Hammock Chair? Pivot or Swing Style?
Since this edition of the hammock chair list is intended to be used in a teen’s room, it is palpable to assume that some of them might use it for swinging or turning around.
If the chair is suspended in pivot style (both ropes are attached in a single swivel or hook), the chair can be moved in 360 degrees which is best to be used when the teen user doesn’t mind the frequency of movement.
Take note, however, that in pivot suspension, the chair tends to move a lot depending on how well you attach it to the base or if there’s not enough force that’s mounted into the hammock.
In swing style, both ropes of the chair are suspended separately which means that there are two swivel or hooks suspended on the ceiling or stand. This style is a great option if the user wants a more steady balance.
However, the swing style is obviously great to be used for swinging.
So to answer the question, we recommend the latter approach because a pivot style can sometimes hinder the width of the seating area whereas the swing style allows you to freely move your head.
Is a Hammock Chair Fitting for a Teenage Room?
Admit it, when we were teenagers, we dreamed of sleeping in a hammock every night, and we mostly envy those who have one in their bedroom (at least, I did).
Now to upgrade a teenage room interior, we should go for something that doesn’t only work as a decoration but can be pretty useful as well.
And here’s why a hammock chair is our best suggestion for that:
- It’s cheap. Whether you’re a parent who wants something for her kid’s room or you’re the kid herself who wants a little enhancement for your room, money is the number 1 problem why we can’t just go for it. A hammock chair will not be a problem at all since you can own one for as little as 30 bucks!
- It’s ergonomic. It’s easy to use, efficient, and safe. No need to go for greater heights just to use it (not when you’ve already assembled it of course).
- It’s relaxing. A hammock chair is cozier than the common chairs, and it makes people want to hang out on it for a long time. So if you’re a parent who wants their kid to stay at home for a little long, (bribe) them with a hammock.
- It looks classy. Who wouldn’t want a pretty thing inside their room? I sure do. Most teens today (or always have been) are into pretty stuff, and what’s a greater option than a hammock chair that looks chic and expensive.
