You're all set to hang up your egg chair. But where do you put it? You can choose from hanging it from the ceiling or a pergola. In order to hang it from the centre, you'll have to measure the distance. Make sure you mark this point with a pencil!
To hang from a plasterboard ceiling, you will need to find the ceiling joist. Plasterboard is not strong enough to support the weight of your egg chair, so you will need to find a joist and then place your chair where it fits.
To find the middle of a joist level, use a stud finder and make sure to mark the location. This will be where you hang your egg chair.
Hanging Egg Chair Installation
If you are comfortable with the idea of drilling a hole and have some DIY experience around the house, then you will do fine hanging your chair
. To start, we recommend drilling a 10 cm hole into the joist. The hole you just drilled will be the anchor point for your chair and provide support.
Carefully screw in the eye hook until you can't see any of the screw's threading.
Keep it simple, and hook the rope or chain to the eye bolt. The other end should be fixed to the top of the hanging egg chair. This chair will come with a carabiner to hook onto; others will require hooking onto the ceiling.
When hung in the right way, an average-sized adult can be supported. If you are concerned about limits to how much weight it can hold, you can add an extra support beam for max safety. Just use the same method as described, but add an extra rope or chain.
