Sex Swing Safety Tips

Over the years, marketers have got their hands on sex swings and somehow forgot the difference between safety features and things that are just fun.

I am talking about the spring. If you read the recommendations from a lot of sex swing manufacturers, you will see that they recommend removing the spring from your swing if you are over a certain weight. This is a highly dangerous idea, and we strongly recommend against this.

In the beginning, the spring was put there by the designers and engineers to add dampening to reduce the shock force on the point where you mount the swing.

Without getting into the technical science stuff, look at everything in your life that moves. There is always some spring or shock to add dampening that helps prevent fatigue and eventual failure. This could range from things like springs that hold your laundry tub in place, the rubber puck where your ceiling fan goes into the ceiling or why all things like bikes have rubber tires rather than wood or steel tires.

Over time, marketers wanting to sell sex swings were more worried about fun than safety. So they started talking about the springs adding bounce for more excitement. Once they started talking about all the fun that the spring can provide, they forgot the original purpose. Since the spring only supports a given weight, they then decided just to remove them if you exceed that weight. That is a bad idea.

I have known personally of girls weighing only 95 pounds using a different brand of sex sling, albeit like a crazy woman, for a couple of hours and breaking a sex swing stand that was designed for several hundred pounds. When I asked her about the springs, she said the box said she did not need them, so she did not use them.

So never use your swing without the spring. Additionally, all Screamer Swings come with a special kind of spring called a drawbar spring. Other brands of swings come with an extension spring that stretches when you put a load on it. They have a load limit of something around 200 pounds, and then you risk damage to the spring if you overload it.

The drawbar spring that ships with a Screamer has a higher weight limit of 300 pounds. On top of that, a drawbar spring does not “stretch,” it “compresses.” This means that in the event the spring is overloaded it will not damage the spring, it will just “bottom out.” This is a much safer alternative to the extension springs.

So whatever your choice when buying a swing, just make sure you use the spring, or you just might end up on the floor.

Setting Up a Screamer Dual Hook Sex Swing

Setting up your Screamer Dual Hook Sex Swing is very simple. Below is a video on how you can set up the straps once you have your mounting points set.

Set the Mounting Points

Before you can set up your sex swing, you need to have hooks to install it in. The two most common options for mounting points are ceiling hooks or a sex swing stand. If you are purchasing a stand you need to make sure the stand has 2 mounting points you can use with a dual hook swing such as the Screamer Sex Swing Stand.

If you want to mount your hooks in the ceiling, make sure you have a secure hold. If you are unsure how to do this, ask a professional. The hooks should be spaced 24-36 inches apart. The wider the hooks are spaced, the wider the seat will be.


Setting the Straps

Screamer Sex Swings can be configured in a number of ways depending on how you want to use it. You can add and remove straps as wanted.

Once you have your mounting points, attach the hardware system to each of the mounting points that consists of a carabiner, a spring, a chain and another carabiner. Next connect the primary and back straps (long straps) to each side of the hardware mounting system to form the seat and back support. Next connect the stirrup straps and the handles to the hardware mounting system. These straps can be connected to any point high or low on the hardware mounting system depending on your comfort and usage.
