How to hang hammock chair from drop-down basement ceiling?

We are finishing the basement and I have a hammock chair that I want it hung there. I am being discouraged since we are going to have a drop-down ceiling. Please give me details (hardware list) on how to do it.

Plasterboard itself is definitely not strong enough to support a hammock chair. However, the plasterboard is likely attached to rafters or joists depending where your room is located. Most would be strong enough to support an additional 100 lbs or so -- especially if you make the attachment fairly close to a wall. You must, however, install the screw hook directly into the center of a joist or rafter truss. To find the location of the joist, you'll need to borrow or buy a good stud finder and learn how to use it. Stud finders can be bought from any good tool department (Home Depot, Lowes, Ace) for around $$30.00. It is a very useful tool to own if you ever hang pictures, towel bars, grab bars, etc.

Hi, You would need to anchor it into the ceiling joists and you'll need enough clearance in the ceiling tile to allow any movement without moving the tile.

attach eyebolts to your ceiling joists. bolts should be long enough to extend just below your ceilng tiles, no need for slits
