 Hanging your tree swing

Most arborists agree that the best way to hang your tree swing is to insert a stainless steel eye bolt into the branch.  This will ensure that the rope is not rubbing the branch and potentially causing damage to the tree.

Using the 1/8" pilot hole drill bit - Drill a hole into the branch and insert the eye bolt into the pilot hole, screwing it in.  Since this is just a pilot hole to guide you, it will be difficult to screw in.  I always use a screwdriver to give the added leverage needed.  Just put the screwdriver through the eye of the screw and use each end as a handle to twist your eye screw into the branch.

Once your eye screw is securely installed in the branch, slip your rope through the eye hole and tie a knot that is large enough that it will not slip back through the eye hole.  Now slip the rope through the hole in the swing seat, set the desired height, tie another knot so the rope will not slip back through and Happy Swinging!
