Wind Chime Placement

Hanging your Chime for the Best Musical Performance

Chimes are known the world over for the purity and beauty of their sound. Most chimes are designed to produce beautiful music from even the slightest breeze, but if you'd like to hear yours more often, here are a few ideas:

  • Hang your chime directly from the ring or knot hook at the top of the chime. Connect one end of an s-hook to the ring/knot hook and the other end to a tree or other structure. Adding chain or string to hang your chime lower can cause the entire chime to swing when in fact you only want the center string and clapper to move.
  • Hang your chime where the wind can reach it from as many directions as possible. An open corner is ideal when hanging the chime from a building.
  • Experiment with hanging your chime at different heights. Wind velocity tends to increase with higher elevation.
  • Avoid hanging your chime within two feet of a wall or too close to plants, furniture and anything that might obstruct or divert the breeze. If you have a screened-in porch, you may find that even the screens will impede the breeze enough to prevent your chime from ringing.
  • Try hanging your chime in different locations during different times of the year. The prevailing winds change seasonally.

We sincerely hope you enjoy your chime for many years to come. And please give us a call if you have any questions - we're always listening.
