How to install a sensory swing?

There are a few ways on how to install your sensory swing indoors:

Connect the hanging screw hook to the ceiling

  1. Connecting the hanging screw hooks
  2. Find a joist in your ceiling

It's much better if you have a stud finder tool so you can easily locate the joist.

What to do if you don't have a stud finder?


A quick tip: Knocking the ceiling. If your knocking sounds solid, then it must be one of your joists. If it's hollow it isn't. Try another direction of your ceiling. Majority of the joists only direct in one direction.

Now you've located the joist, you can start to locate anywhere from those joists you're planning to hang the sensory swing seat at.

      3. Installing your sensory swing 

Equipment you need:

drilling equipment - siesta hammocks

  • Drill
  • Pencil
  • Drill Bit

      4. Draw the hole location

hanging kit - siesta hammocks

  • Use the ceiling hanging kit to measure where you can drill the holes. Mark its holes with a pencil.

Please note: The majority of the joists are in different sizes so some are not wide enough to drill those four bolts. 

Solution: Drill at least 2 blots along the joist. Sometimes, two bolts will be enough to support the seat.

  • Using the drill, drill into the joist where the pencil markings are. Drill each hole.
  • Clean out the drill using a vacuum, brush, or blowing into the bits. Always use a protective face shield, sunglasses to protect your eyes and not get dust in them.
  • Insert the hook into the hole and screw the bolts through the ceiling hook.
  • Tighten all the bolts using a screwdriver.


  • Connect the carabiner to the sensory swing hook that’s already installed.
  • If it’s too high from the ground, you can use a hanging chain kit to extend the seat lower to the floor.

  • An ideal safety precaution for hanging sensory swing is to put a mat under the sensory swing in case the child falls so it'll not result in any serious injury to the user.
  • It's a must that the distance from the ground should not be more than 35cm.
