I rent an apartment. Can I install the swing in the ceiling?
Of course you can. When you want to take off the swing, cover the hole with plaster and paint it. The process is very easy.

My kid finds it hard to get into the sensory swing by himself; what should I do?
You may need to help your child get into the swing for the first few times. However, the fabric is stretchy, and soon your child will learn how to do it alone.

In case the swing touches the floor, you can knot the fabric near the shackle to make the fabric shorter.

The amount of fabric in the swing makes the difference.
