Start by cutting a hole in the drywall in the ceiling to check the type of framing members. Make sure there is a nice solid beam to support the swing.
Drill a hole through the beam large enough for the eye bolt to thread through.
Install a heavy-duty eye bolt through the hole in the beam. When threading an eye bolt, it is a good idea to use another bolt to help turn the eye faster. Turn the eye bolt just until it pokes through on the top side of the beam.
Place the plate in position on top of the beam over the eye bolt, using the washer and nut to keep it in place. Use a wrench to hold the top nut in place while tightening the eye bolt all the way into the beam. This will help distribute the weight across the whole beam.
Hook the swinging rotation unit into the eye bolt using a heavy duty snap. This will allow the swing to rotate.
