You are now ready to attach the swing and test it out. I advise testing the mount with something under you like some couch cushions or pillows…just in case. Falling on your ass is never fun. When I did mine I sort of jumped up and down while in the swing while watching the eyelet for movement. If you want to have you and a partner in the swing at the same time make sure to test this as well, chances are you will be adding close to twice the weight. Just make sure you are under the weight limit of the swing.

So let’s look at ways of mounting a swing where you either don’t want a big hole or want to hide it.

The first thing that comes to mind is for those that are not sure if the stud will be strong enough or maybe the stud is not in the best location. This could also work for apartments where a big hole is not desired.
For this you will need to find two studs, preferably next to each other. Measure from stud to stud (outside to outside) and find (or cut) a piece of 2X4 this length. You can then use screws to attach it to the studs. Now this will be a eye sore and all but you will only have four small hole that can be filled easy with spackling, much easier that the 3/8” hole which may need some paint to hide it. You can also mount the eyelet anywhere on the 2X4. Since you will have the 2X4 laying on its side you will not be able to screw in the eyelet all the way like before. I am pretty sure it will still hold one person but two may be pushing it.




Note that I did not have a 2X4 lying around (Gasp!) so I just drew some lines on the wood to show you.

I am assuming (forbid) that the mounting should be the same for the new yoga swing that is on the Eden Link.

For sure, not 100% about that one but if you are suspending yourself from the ceiling you want to be safe.

If you happen to have an attic space (and own your home) you can do the same thing but attach the 2X4 to the top of the studs. Then you can buy an access panel from the local hardware store and cut the ceiling to fit it. Then all your visitors will see is a plastic panel on the ceiling, easily explained as a water valve or something like that.



These come in various styles, shapes and sizes and can be found at most hardware stores. Most of them are mounted using four (Or more) screws.

Peg has a great idea with the fire alarm as a cover; you could even use a dummy light fixture as well. Just like using a sex swing, you just have to use your imagination. Hell, buy a fake plant with a hanging planter and hang it from the eyelet. Honestly, I don’t think many folks will question it anyways.

One more thing I’d like to add is for door swings.

One problem I ran into with mine was having a door that had a small enough gap on top. My house is pretty old and I think the doors were added later. Anyway, one way to fix this problem is to simply add some plywood strips to the door and top door jam. I was able to make the gap just right and I am now sure that the door will hold.




Another though would be to use eyelets mounted on top of the door frame. Just use four of them spaced 2” apart (Same as webbing) on each side. Then you could use the swing without the door, this would open up more possibilities for sure.

See, you just have to think about it for a bit. Where there's a will there's a way. Right?

Definitely not. There was already a huge hole in the ceiling in my apt when I moved in from a hanging planter. I would've never thought twice about it being used for a sex swing. Except that it in a corner...

Well that’s it! I hope this helps y’all with mounting a swing. Like I said before, the only real critical part about this is finding the center of the stud. Do that and that swing will stay put like it should and provide years of erotic service.

So after you take your swing down, what do you store it in? does it still fit into the box after you have used it or does it expand too much??

Did you use any type of product like lock tight on your screw? Would you suggest this?
