Since Georgia Swings began offering porch swing rope assembly hanging kits, more people choose it instead of chains. This does not imply that one is better than the other. In fact, our rope and chain hanging kits are relatively comparable in quality and strength. The primary factor most people use in selecting one of our hanging kits is purely aesthetics. Chains have also been used to hang swings as far as any of us can remember, and it is unlikely that will change anytime soon. Choosing the right rope can be an excellent alternative for patio swings. A rope has a softer organic look that adds just the right element to compliment a naturally beautiful solid wooden swing.

Things to consider when choosing hanging material
While rope may be a preference for some people to hang their swing, here are a few things to consider.
- Chains are much easier to level off a swing than rope. Simply counting the chain links is sometimes all that is necessary to level a swing with chains. Rope requires more skill and patience. Hire a professional if possible.
- Please make sure you choose our rope hanging kit since our rope doesn’t shrink, stretch, rot, or mildew. Buying the right type of rope for swings is critical for avoiding future problems.
