To hang a ceiling chair you’ll need just a single anchor point. Here’s a quick overview of the four best suspension sets for hammock and hanging chairs on the market which you can easily install and relatively quickly attach your hammock chair to the ceiling.
1. SWING HANGER BY MARATHON
This high-quality swing hanger is a perfect choice to hang your hammock chair “swing style” with two suspension points on our porch or your living room.
This is certainly not the cheapest swing hanger you could find, but it is a high-quality product, very solid, easy to fix up and completely silent. You can leisurely enjoy the midnight swinging without disturbing the neighborhood, cause this swing hanger works like a charm with no squeaks, no rubbing and no plastic ring that breaks down after a couple of days.
Thanks to modern ball bearings technique, the suspended snap hook runs like on rails, which allows constant movement up to 60 minutes nonstop and beyond. The excellent rolling feature guarantees a maximum of smooth motion and pure relaxation without any background noise.
You can choose between premium zinc plated or stainless steel hanger, which is seawater proofed and perfect for the beach or in swimming pools with chlorine-containing air.

For outdoors we recommend the new model model made of stainless steel AISI 304. The model with improved runnability will let you enjoy many minutes of really smooth and continous motion. One small push on the porch swing and it keeps going, and going, and going, and….
Keep in mind that you are buying individual hangers. For a porch swing or any other swing chair with two suspension points you need to purchase 2 of them.

Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installation and safety when fixing the suspension set. The installation must be done by a competent person and to a load-bearing material. Check all individual parts for signs of damage regularly. Should you find signs of damage, replace the respective parts immediately. An extraordinary exposure to weather and intensive use will bring about wear and tear faster. Never exceed the specified maximum loading capacity of the product.
In the case of new installation, before using your new ceiling chair, be sure to test it for safety.
