How to hang sex swings
Posted by Carlo Apas on
What everyone wants to know when they purchase a sex swing is how to install it. Furthermore, most people would like to find a way to install it so they don’t have to explain it to their landlords, or even worse, in-laws. So, to make your life and sex play easier, we came up with several ways to mount your sex swing.
You decided to buy a sex swing, but you’re not quite sure how you can install it? Sex swing instructions are usually pretty simple, but if you want to know how to hang a sex swing before you buy one, we got you covered. We prepared 8 best ways to install your sex swing.
1. Over the door
With door sex swings, installation is pretty straightforward – you get a swing that is basically a seat with stirrups, handles and a lot of straps. At one end, you will see two acrylic tubes attached to two straps. Drape those tubes over the top of the door, so they are on the opposite side from you. Close the door, and lock it for extra security. You can’t mount these on hollow core doors, pick something sturdy instead. Also, make sure that the area around the swing isn’t crowded with things. You will want enough space for you two to move easily. This way, you can put your swing on whenever you want, and take it off whenever you don’t need it. You can pack it easily, and it doesn’t take up a lot of space. Perfect for couples who want something small and simple to bring exhilaration to their sex life.
2. Beam installation
This way is perfect for single or dual hook swings. Hang a strap over an exposed ceiling beam. Mount a swing on it. Ta-daaah – that’s it! It couldn’t be simpler. What we really like about the beam strap is the fact that nothing has to be drilled into anything, so there are no ugly holes on your ceiling, and your landlord won’t have a problem with it. Another great thing about beam straps is that they’re really small and portable. It’s something that can travel with you, as it’s not limited to your home. If you’re looking for a way to take sex play out of the bedroom, this is a great way. Get creative, try it in the middle of the forest, on tree branches, between two trees – the sky is the limit here.
3. Door to door
This is the perfect way to mount your sex swing. Just find a suitable hallway, and you’re set. Of course, you need a dual hook sex swing for this method to work. Dual hook swings are great because they are wide, so they provide a lot of comfort, and a lot of options when it comes to positions. Trust us, the width makes all the difference! To use this mounting option, you need two doors that are directly across from each other. You can install eye hooks on doors or simply use an over the door mount on each of the doors. Of course, this isn’t for wide hallways, as it will put unnecessary stress on your swing. The distance between hooks should not be less than 24” or more than 37”. Once you get your sex swing instructions from the manufacturer, you’ll see exactly what’s recommended for your model.
4. Wall to wall
This is very similar to door to door, just a bit higher up. The only difference is that you have to screw the mounting points into the walls. If you can do this, it’ll be a lot more stable and stronger than door to door mount. It has all the benefits of both the door and the ceiling mounts, but none of the drawbacks. These mounts are easy to hide, so as long as you hang a picture frame or a clock over them, no one will know what you do when you’re alone with your partner. Just like door to door, this method is only good for dual hook swings.
5. Door to wall
When you don’t have two doors across from each other, and you still want mounts that are easy to hide with art, this method is great. A combination of options 3 and 4 offers simplicity and comfort. Use an over the door mount on one side, and install a hook across the hallway at the same height. Of course, this one only works if you have a dual hook swing, but it’s fun and easy to conceal!
6. Direct ceiling mount
Everybody knows about this mounting method. Simply use a tiedown anchor, or an eye hook, and attach it directly to the ceiling. Although it isn’t perfect for people who don’t want everyone to know what they’re doing when they’re alone, this is the most reliable mounting method. You need to choose a part of your ceiling where the beam is, so you don’t destroy your ceiling and end up in a nightmare. People love this method because it lets them be creative; it’s good for single and dual hook swing sets, and it’s relatively easy to do. If you’re renting, or you don’t want your friends and family to know about your little sexy games, it’s best to think of an alternate use for the hooks on your ceiling. Creative lighting that can be removed when you need to play, or a decorative hanging plant – be creative and no one has to know about your little kink.
7. Dual hook chin up bar
This is the most flexible sex swing installation method. If you decide to travel, and you want to take your sex swing with you, this is the mount you need. It’s easy to carry, it doesn’t take up much space, and you can make it work almost anywhere. The main problem with it is the fact that it has a weight limit. It can’t take on more than 200 pounds. You can only use it with dual hook swings. Another thing you need to be aware of with this method, is that it will be hanging a lot lower than it would be with a ceiling hook. This means that you need a swing with a large adjustability range for this to work. This item is easy to get by – purchase it anywhere you want, and replace the crossbar bolts with hooks.
8. Self-standing installation
You can take any sex swing model you like, and then get a swing stand for it. Stands are great because they can take a lot of weight, so you can both swing. Also, they are easy to assemble, and even easier to take apart and hide away. Not to mention that they don’t leave holes in your ceiling or walls. If you’re just getting your first sex swing, we don’t recommend this, as it’s the most expensive option. But, if you want to invest in a good solution, this is it.
You see, it’s easy. Just pick the installation option that works best for you, and then purchase a swing model that corresponds to it. Nothing easier.
