Question: Replacement Canopy for Garden SwingMay 29, 20120 found this helpfulI am looking for a replacement canopy for a three-seat hammock swing that I purchased from Walmart a few years ago. The canopy top resembles a gazebo top. It is stationary (does not pivot) and angles up from the four sides to a flat top in the center similar to a roof. AdBy Kathy D. Answer Was this helpful? YesBy Ida M. May 31, 20120 found this helpfulMy canopy wore out on my swing. Well I had bought some twin fitted sheets a long while back very cheap. What I did was take two twin fitted sheets and take out the corners and hem with rubber off long side of each fitted sheet and I measured the canopy frame. Then I sewed the two pieces together. I was trying to make a new fitted sheet for my pillow top mattress. Well, I couldn't get the flat sheet to fit right so I accidentally tried the new fitted sheet on my canopy frame and it fit perfectly. So now I have a cover again and I can change the pattern anytime I want. My frame happened to be the same size as my pillow top mattress. I was a little time consuming to tear out the old seams, but saved me a lot of money for a replacement. Reply Was this helpful? Yes

Tip: Replacing Canopy on a Lawn SwingOctober 10, 20087 found this helpfulI have an old aluminum lawn swing which needed a new canopy. The cushions were easy to replace but I need a canopy. I went to a hardware store and bought a vinyl roll up shade (could be bamboo) and placed it over the top of the swing. I tied it down with plastic slip ties. It has lasted over three years now and is easy to keep clean.AdBy Mary C. from Newark, CA Comment Was this helpful? 7By Theresa L.

Question: Replacing Canopy for a Swing/GliderBy cshell 2 found this helpfulJune 26, 2011Does anyone know an easy inexpensive way to replace the canopy that goes over a swing? Mine fell apart from just normal sun/weather exposure. The frame and rest of the swing is fine. I don’t really want to have to replace the whole thing (too expensive) if I don’t have to. Help! AdBy Michelle Answer Was this helpful? 2By Maya Lee June 27, 20110 found this helpfulOr, use a piece of canvas tarp.

I just did a search and a lot of it is priced at 8.98 a yard and it's 54 inches wide. If you talk with them about your project, you will find they are really helpful. And your swing would look so nice. Reply Was this helpful? 2By Pat June 27, 20110 found this helpfulI actually found a small childs tent that was just the right size to replace mine, at a yard sale. Take the measurements and you may find just the thing to work for you.Pat Reply Was this helpful? 2AdBy Vi Johnson June 28, 20110 found this helpfulWe had one of these swings also. And the top rotted off by the end of that first summer. I used an old twin size sheet to just pin it over the top frame. You can pick up good sheets at a thrift store. Maybe you could find just the right thing there also. GG Vi Reply Was this helpful? 2Read More Answers

I bought this cover to protect my new swing I had just bought. Well the first time I covered it it turned the whole swing over, when the wind hit it. Then I opened the zippers to let some air in and the wind took it for a ride. No matter what I did it would not stay on. So with this bad storm we just had my swing is a mess and the dang cover cost me money and did not do the job. No I would not purchase it again, or recommend it to anyone. I think I deserve a refund. I'm attaching a photo of my new swing that is messed up now.

I have a canopied glider swing that needs serious help. It's less than 2 years old, but due to the fierce Arizona heat, the canopy is totally shredded from sun-rot. How can I salvage the rest of the swing, which is in perfect condition?

A.My deck swing is a three-seater with a removable and adjustable cloth sunshade. I found the cover to be much bigger than my swing with the sunshade attached. It's easier to work with more material than less, but since it is larger, I think it would be a good idea to purchase and return if not sufficient to cover your swing. I personally think it will fit though.

A.Yes, the cover is made from a plastic or vinyl like a tarp. It has a zippered front opening, so you don't necessarily have to remove it to use it. However, it is very lightweight, and when it is windy it will flap and make plenty of noise(annoying). It can be pulled and cinched around the frame of the swing here and there to eliminate most of this, unless we're talking about a strong storm. We throw all of our patio cushions on our swing when not in use, zip the front closed, and have dry cushions for next use!!
