While a hammock can go on a porch and both are most commonly used outdoors, they are very different from a porch swing. A porch swing is a hanging bench or chair, usually for two people, that is often suspended from the roof of a porch or an outdoor pergola They are often made of wood or plastic. Hammocks are like beds made of rope or synthetic material that is hung between two posts or trees.

Porch swing RUS4172 need parts

Hello, Gerri -

Did you purchase the porch swing new or second-hand?

If you purchased it new, then you know where you purchased it (at a bricks and mortar store or online.) You should contact the business or individual seller from which you purchased the porch swing and ask for the needed parts or ask to return the porch swing for a full refund (including the return shipping costs, if you need to ship the swing.)

If you purchased the porch swing second-hand, then you should need to contact the seller about the missing pieces.

Apparently the RUS4172 porch swing is a Living Accents brand. Living Accents appears to be a trademark owned by Ace Hardware, according to Trademarkia:

You may wish to contact Ace Hardware Customer Service to find out about the availability of the missing porch swing parts:

Note: Your question initially landed in the category of Baby Gear. I recatergorized it to Garden, where questions about porch, yard, and garden furniture seem to fit best.

Best wishes.

What is the best way to lie in a hammock?

It is possible to lie across the length of it or else across the hammock's width. My favorite way to lie is diagonally. My friends and family all agree with me on this. This way there is the most room to lie and also there's adequate support from the hammock.
