How do I decide which rope thickness to buy?
Last Updated: 01/15/2019
We provide manila rope at two different thicknesses: 3/4” diameter and 1” diameter. The 1” gives a much more substantial look since it is thicker. However, please note that 1” may settle and stretch more over time, meaning that you may need to adjust your swing bed periodically. The 3/4” rope does settle as well, but usually after one height adjustment, you’re good to go. Our manila rope holds up very well outdoors, in humid environments, and salty air. The rope and ceiling hooks are rated for 1280 lbs. The manila rope is great for a rugged, rustic look at either diameter.

We just recently added a 1.5" black rope option. Unfortunately not all of our swing designs will work with the black rope option, so you may not see this within the drop-down menu of the item you are purchasing. If the option is available, you may choose to select the black rope. All hanging hardware and ceiling/swing hooks are provided with any hanging option you choose.
