Can I install a child's hammock swing close to the ground instead of the 'normal' height?

Hammock Swing Installation For Kids

Hammocks and hammock swings are usually recommended for a certain height, but these are usually for adult hammocks and hammock swings. If you are purchasing a hammock swing for a child, you may wish to put them lower to the ground. Many parents worry about their children falling from a swing or hammock, and a close proximity to the floor or grass can alleviate these fears. If used properly, hammock swings are safe for kids so long as it is a supervised activity, but the additional peace of mind of the "low-to-the-floor" hanging is a good thing. Be sure to double-check the instruction manual to insure you don't install below the recommended minimum height.
