Hi, Lucas Rockwood here with the Yoga Trapeze. So, I just wanted to show you how we set up the trapeze very quickly.
So, to start with, we can take a look at the different parts we have here. We take out two ropes that come with the kit and you want to wrap them around something like a pole or an exposed beam or some hooks like we’ll look at later. So, with each of the ropes wrapped around something let’s just take a look at how you would set this up.
S0, the main sling is connected with two different hooks. And then hooks go through both ropes. So, the ropes go around the beam or the pole or the hook. And then, the hook from the sling goes through both.
And then next, we attach the handles. And the handles, all three handles are connected with just one hook. So, you hook one of them and then you’ve got all of them connected. Now ideally, we want to have the shortest handle positioned towards the back. That will make more sense here in a moment. Now, in the other side, we’re going to again connect the sling. Now, you just want to look down here and make sure your sling is not twisted. And then, you bring the hooks through both ropes.
And then, we move on to the handles. Now again, all three handles are on just one hook. So, you place that one hook through both ropes and then you're all set. But again, remember that shortest handle wants to be the last one in positioning. Let’s take a look here, it’ll be easier.
So, here I'm doing at—actually hanging from a bar. You could do this form a beam. You could do this from hooks. And we’re going to start by putting the sling hook through both ropes. I'm using the bottom rung. You could use different rungs if you want to make it higher or different lengths.
So again, as you're hooking here, just look down and make sure your sling is not twisted. And then, we’ll move on to the handles. Now again, all three handles are on one hook. So, once you hook them on, you're good to go.
Now, take a look here. I'm twisting it so that the smallest handle, the shortest handle is facing towards the wall. So, it's facing towards the back. That makes it easier for you to grab on to. You can do it either way. This just makes it a little bit easier to use.
Now, let’s take a look at the other side. Just see it one more time. So, I lifted it up. I have all three handles. And again, you see that shortest handles is towards the back. And then, when it's in that position, I'm going to hook it through both ropes. And then, we’re all set. You're yoga trapeze is set up and ready to go.
So again, there’s a lot of different places you could hang this. You can hang it form a bar. You can hang it from a beam. Or you can hang it from some hooks which we’ll take a look at now.
So, I have mine hanging in my house from some hook. And it looks like this. And there are a couple different kinds of hooks you can use. These are the simplest hooks that you’ll find in almost any hardware store. And these will screw in to a beam like a wooden beam or a wooden door frame like I have.
The disadvantage of these is, you can’t use a power tool. You actually have to use manpower. And you really have yo crank on them. But, they work just fine. You want big thick ones.
The second option I like better if your beam or your wooden board is thick enough which is here. And here, what you’ll see is these are actually screwed in. there are four screws that you can use a power tool with to screw these into a wooden beam or a door frame. You usually don’t need that chain or that hook but you could use it if you wanted to. Now you can find these at any home furnishing store. I got my hooks at IKEA. Every house is different. So there is no one size-fits-all hooks that I can send you unfortunately. But again, you can find them very quickly. I got mine for about $6.00 at IKEA. And literally, the whole thing to install took me about 15 minutes start to finish using a power drill.
And it's very, very sturdy and very stable. So again, your options for hanging are; an exposed beam like on a patio or if you have any kind of interior, exterior terrace. And the other option is using some kind of outdoor swing set like at a children’s gymnasium outside. You could also use a pull-up or a chin-up bar. To the third option which is really nice is to actually fix it to a beam or a doorway in your house like I've done with mine.
So, I hope that’s helpful. And if you have any other questions, feel fee to contact us. Thanks so much and by for now.
