Hanging porch swing

i have a porch swing to hang but it appears to be back heavy and will not hang correctly. I've moved the chain locations but to no avail. any help would be very much appreciated [] when hung (no matter what the connection point) it falls over backwards.

Re: Hanging porch swing

Google Images "porch swing" and you'll see various mounting locations for the chains to the bench. Relocate your chains accordingly so that the bench cannot flip backwards. Make sure that you stay attached to structural members, do not just wrap around the arm rest or seat slat.
