Selecting the tree swing and rope length for your purchase can be challenging. Therefore, below we have made an easy guide to help you determine how much rope you may need for your tree swing.
Generally, the best measurement to determine the length of rope you need is to measure from the ground to the tree limb. This measurement will allow you a general sitting position about 18 inches above the ground, and allow for the rope to be secured around the tree branch. If still in question, order at least another 1 to 2 feet per side.
Hanging Kits are available for every tree swing we sell. The available sizes are 36", 48" and 60". The inch measurement is the total amount of material from end to end. Below are the diameters that each size measures.
36 Inch Hanging Kit- up to 9 inches diameter limbs
48 Inch Hanging Kit- up to 12 inches diameter limbs
60 Inch Hanging Kit- up to 17 inches diameter limbs
*NOTE- When ordering a hanging kit for your swing, make sure to note whether it is a single rope, double rope, or triple rope design. Below are examples of what type(s) of kit should be ordered according to the tree swing type:
Disc Swing- Single Hanging Kit only (Single Rope Style)
