The stand is 2.1m tall, it's easy to assemble and it comes with additional accessories that let you adjust the hanging height - a chain, carabiner and S-hook.

It is popular with both kids with autism and occupational therapists for its soothing effect. The stand makes it very convenient to set up, without the need to install anything on the roof. If you want to use the swing outside, you'll only need a tree strap or rope - the material is fine for outdoors.
Some children like to add a soft blanket around the outside of the seat. This makes the seat warmer and flatter.

There are a few ways on how to install your sensory swing indoors:
Connect the hanging screw hook to the ceiling
- Connecting the hanging screw hooks
- 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:
- Drill Bit
4. Draw the hole location
- 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.

Before your child/children use the swing, pull it down as hard as you can to ensure that it’s installed correctly and can carry your child, if there’s no issue, let your child play away!
