just something so inviting about a porch swing. It's the first place
anyone chooses to sit to enjoy the weather, and we've always had one.
Typically, the swing is hung in a direction to enjoy the best view.
Sometimes this is obvious. In our first house, we pointed the swing in
the direction of Hampton Park. In our second home, we situated it to
see the Ashley River. But in our current home, there's a pool and
marsh in the back but a large conversation, fireplace, and eating area
underneath. We had to choose which direction to face the swing or
occasionally, we would climb a step ladder to switch the direction of
the swing (not an easy feat!) That has all changed with the Swivel
Swing. We have two daughters ages 8 and 12, and they can effortlessly
switch the direction of our porch swing to the direction or angle that
suits us. The swing smoothly glides to any angle or position- even
catty cornered- by just pulling a cord and turning the swing. It has
really created a new outdoor atmosphere and seating area. We get plenty
of comments and questions from family and friends who are excited to
see a solution to their own dilemmas on which direction to hang their
one-way swings. The hardware took less than 30 minutes to install and
it is holding up well in Charleston's salty sea air and humidity. We
will be using our Swivel Swing forever, because when we sell the house,
the Swivel Swing comes with us!
