How to hang your Four Oak Bed Swing.

*Please note that the following instructions are intended for bed swings that were purchased with our EZ Adjust Hanging Kit.

  1. Take the short link of chain that is provided with your bed swing and run it through the loop at the end of the rope, then take the clip or carabiner and connect the two ends of the chain together.

  2. Connect the clip/carabiner to the hooks you had installed by a licensed contractor, handyman, or trademan. Now all 4 ropes should be hanging freely from the ceiling. 

  3. Move the bed swing into position lining them up with the ropes.

  4. Lift one side of the bed swing up and place the 5-gallon bucket underneath the edge of the bed swing.

  5. With the bed swing sitting on the 5-gallon bucket, take one of the ropes hanging from the ceiling and run it through the rope hole at bottom of the bed swing and pull tight. Tie a standard knot in the end of the rope **be sure to make the knot as tight and close to the bottom of the swing as possible** the bed swing will sit on the knot, so the closer you make the knot to the bed swing, the less the bed swing will fall when you remove the bucket.

  6. Repeat step 5 for the other rope on that one side of the bed swing.

  7. Lift the bed swing, up just enough to remove the bucket out from underneath the bed swing.

  8. Repeat steps 4-7 for the other side of the bed swing.

  9. **IMPORTANT** Put as much weight on the bed swing as possible, this will tighten up all the knots in the rope making the bed swing fall down anywhere from 3 to 6 inches.  

  10. Now that the bed swing has likely settled down quite a bit, set the 5-gallon bucket back underneath whichever side you need to adjust. Unhook the clip/carabiner from the ceiling and move the clip from link to link to make the necessary adjustments.

  11. Remove any electrical tape at the ends of the rope or simply cut the rope about 4 inches below the knot at the bottom.
