Installation

It is possible to attach the Lightswing to a slightly sloping ceiling. It is best to use a Lightswing Twin for this. The Lightswing Twin has adjustable feet at both ends of the Lightswing, with which you can secure the Lightswing to the ceiling on both sides. Note: make sure that the lamp is not hanging at the lowest point. The Quick Release to which the lamp is attached is not locked in the Lightswing. If the lamp is too heavy or if the slope is too steep, the Quick Release can come loose.
Yes, of course! If you prefer to assemble the Lightswing with the aid of a paper manual, it is best to send an e-mail to support@lightswing.eu. In this way, we can make sure that you receive the paper version as quickly as possible!
Every Lightswing package contains a card with a QR code. By scanning this QR code with the camera of your smartphone, you will be automatically redirected to the digital manual. This digital manual has handy videos which show you how you can assemble the Lightswing. You will also find the manual at www.lightswing.eu/manual.
The supplied adjustable feet can be used to adjust the Lightswing straight along the ceiling and to offer the Lightswing more support. To do this, first place the transparent adjustable foot over the transparent bolt at the end of the Lightswing. Then turn the adjustable foot until the Lightswing hangs straight.

The long transparent bolt is needed when you attach the Lightswing to the ceiling with the mounting ring. The mounting ring makes that the distance between the Lightswing and the ceiling increases. To be able to adjust the Lightswing properly along the ceiling, you need a longer bolt that bridges this distance. You can easily unscrew the short bolt from the Lightswing and replace it with the longer bolt.

When placing the cover caps, it is important that the screws with which the Lightswing are attached to the ceiling are properly screwed. When the screws protrude slightly, the cover caps can get caught behind the screws. As a result, the cover caps cannot move well with the Lightswing.
Position the Lightswing against the mounting ring, making sure the holes in the base plate of the Lightswing are placed over the small holes in the mounting ring. Tighten the four provided screws in the holes of the mounting ring using a phillips screwdriver.

The supplied screw eye can be fastened at the end of the Lightswing. The chain or steel wire of the light can then be attached to this.

Take the Quick Release and use a screwdriver to loosen one screw of the strain relief. Remove the other screw entirely so you can easily feed the light cable through.

Slide the Quick Release out of the end of the Lightswing. Is the Quick Release difficult to move in and out of the Lightswing? If so, carefully squeeze the sides of the Quick Release slightly inwards.

Your Lightswing has an overspin protection system. This safety feature ensures that the Lightswing will lock after two full revolutions of the base plate. The Lightswing will then be unable to turn any further. Is the base plate immobile? Rotate the base plate back again slightly before attaching the Lightswing to the ceiling.

The mounting ring does not need to be used as standard. This is only necessary if you do not want to place the Lightswing over the central box or if there are projecting features on your ceiling which prevent the Lightswing from rotating freely.
You will need a number of tools for the installation of the Lightswing. These are: drill, screwdriver and a wire stripper. In addition to the tools, you will also need screws and plugs. Depending on the material of your ceiling, you can decide which are most suitable.
Yes, the Lightswing Twin only needs one connection point. The power splits to both ends within the Lightswing.
Yes, with the aid of the mounting ring you can position the Lightswing in any desired position. With the mounting ring the Lightswing does not need to be positioned directly over the central box. Consult our installation manual (lightswing.eu/manual) for more information.
With the aid of the mounting ring you can position the Lightswing in any desired location. With the mounting ring the Lightswing does not always need to be positioned directly over the central box. Because the Lightswing with the mounting ring ends up around 2.5 cm from the ceiling, the Lightswing can still turn freely if a cable channel is required.
Do you have a light connected to a steel wire or chain as well as a cable? No problem! It is possible to install small hooks at the end of the Lightswing, to which the steel wire can be attached. The hooks are included as standard.
Each individual pendant light up to 3.5 kg is suitable for the Lightswing. With the strong steel construction of the Lightswing, lights up to 3.5 kg can be attached, even when the arm of the Lightswing is fully extended. The Ligthswing Twin can also hold a maximum weight of 3.5 kg per light (7 kg total). A light must never be heavier than 3.5 kg.
All pendant lights up to 3.5 kg are suitable for the Lightswing. One cable can be fixed in the Quick Release system meaning that it is not possible to attach pendant lights with multiple cables. For the Twin, two single lights can be fixed because there is a quick release at both ends.
In principle any ceiling is suitable for the Lightswing. The ceiling does need to be strong enough for the weight of the pendant light. If necessary a reinforcement needs to be fixed in place around the central box. First check carefully whether a screw with plug has optimum grip in the ceiling before attaching the Lightswing.
