To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
CHECK THE WIDTH OF THE MOUNTING BRACKET. The hardware is good quality....very heavy duty. The one issue I had was with the mounting bracket. Considering how much weight this needs to hold, you need to screw it directly into a 2X4.(assuming you are hanging this indoors, as I was, in my kid's bedroom) A 2X4 is only 1.5 inches wide...the holes in the bracket are slightly wider than that. So I was faced with one of the screws being on the edge of the 2X4, that made me uncomfortable. Maybe it would have been fine, but my teenager sitting in this is 110 lbs so I was concerned. I ended up going into the attic and nailing another a short 2X4 into the existing one to effectively widen the screwing surface to 3 inches. This did the trick, but definitely some extra work.
Bought this to hang a hammock chair from an exposed ceiling beam. Parts appear to be very high quality, sturdy and nicely finished but not well-suited for this purpose. Here's why: 1) spring is too stiff. Doesn't stretch at all, even when a nearly 200 lb person sits in the chair. 2) hooks on spring are very shallow. Seems like it could easily slip off when getting in out of chair and hurt you (it's very heavy) 3) swivel hook opens by pulling the latch outward away from the hook. While this may be safer than the typical push in type, it takes 2 hands to operate so you can't grab whatever you're attaching it to. Very difficult to operate. 4) swivel is metal on metal so it doesn't rotate easily with weight on it. The chain or rope will twist more easily making it useless.
I should have saved my money and just bought a large eye bolt and S-hook at the hardware store.
I'm so far a little so-so on this. i recognize the benefit of having a spring hanging off the ceiling hook, so I think the design and parts included are fine. however, the spring hook tends to rotate a little on the ceiling mount as the ceiling hammock rotates on its axis, causing unpleasant popping noises. the rotating part of the carabiner was supposed to prevent this, I thought. The carabiner does not rotate easily, perhaps by design, but again, this means either the spring's hook is moving around a little, or worse, the rope attached to the carabiner rotates on its axis and twists, instead of staying flush and allowing the carabiner to rotate.
I bought these to hang a few hammock chairs. The spring, swivel, and base are very sturdy. However, I dropped a star on the rating because the included screws will not support the weight of a grown adult. I strongly suggest using 1/4" x 1 1/2" lag bolts. They will hold the weight of an adult with no problems.
Used this kit to hang my new hammock chair. Very simple to install and love the fact of having all the pieces needed already grouped in one purchase, hate spending time in the hardware isle searching for individual parts that don’t always work out.
After ordering a hammock chair I realized I din't have any mounting hardware. I was initially going to use a single fish eye hook, but this kit made life much simpler. I could only hit wood on the two center line screws, but the hammock is meant for my daughter, so this is fine. Having the spring provides additional flex along with the hammock itself. I did have to hit Home Depot to buy some additional chain link (about 18") and an extra caribeener to clamp it all together. This kit could be even better if it included 24" of chain to allow for varying heights, but I understand it might price the parts too high to be competitive. All the parts are very sturdy and provide sufficient confidence that the hammock chair will have a great life in my daughter's bedroom.
When we had a pergola built in our backyard, I bought this to hang my hammock chair. Then we picked up some similar hardware at a big box store to hang some more chairs. While the others already look weathered, this one still looks new. It's also nice that everything you need (except screws) is in one package. I had to mix and match and figure it out at the hardware store.
This is a solid, heavy bunch of hardware! I'm not in my new home yet, but I will tell you that the service this company provides is out of this world! I received an email from them, told them my situation, that I'm not in yet but will be hanging this in a pergola, and got a nice response telling me what to look for in the wood when I hang it and that I should reach out to them if I have any questions. This is a small company, and they really want to treat the customer right. I'm sure the product will equal in quality their customer service!
Just got this and installed 4 in my house for a yoga swing for myself and a play swing for my kids. I read all the reviews and used bolts I read about instead of the screws included. I’m over 200 lbs and trying to lose weight but was really excited to try trapeze yoga. Two of these hold my weight with no budge! Now I can have the added benefit of the yoga swing in my home gym!
We purchased this hanging kit to mount a chair in our Granddaughters bedroom from the ceiling.The product is the wrong shape to secure all 4 screws into the beam and worse part the screws were far to short. We had to go purchase much longer screws and only then was it secured enough to use. Side note our 2 Granddaughters are quite petite.
