No stakes are included. You have to make your own stakes out of 2x4's, each about 12 to 18 inches long for each leg.

1 Hour Swing Set should be built on level ground. There are anchors that come with the set to anchor to the ground. Slightly uneven is normally ok. Make sure unit is anchored down.

Answer: 
You could, since the hardware to attach the legs to the rest of the frame doesn't care how long the legs actually are. If you do use longer legs, you may also want to adjust the location at which you would install the beams to support the legs, so that they are farther down the leg but end up in the same area proportionate to the new leg size.

Do-It-Yourself One-Hour Custom Play Set is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not an hour! Very good product. Overall--very good product. The screws are a bit inferior. The head of some rounded out. I replaced most with better hardware. For instance--one of the heads of the large screw was oblong and basically sliced in half. Two of the nuts broke in half. USE A 4X6 TOP BEAM!!!! The directions call for a 4x4 which flexes way too much. I didn't do this, so I had to go back and sister the 4x4 with a pair of 2x6's and a 5/4 deck board for a cap. It doesn't budge now. Bonus--it left a rectangular opening in which I installed low voltage LED lighting and tied into my landscaping lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I purchased My daughter kept telling me year after year she wanted a swing set, but I was not willing to spend $1000 - $2000 on a new swing set - and any nice ones I found on Craigslist were not much less than the new ones, and they usually required you to disassemble and transport yourself. So I said, screw it, I can build one myself. Then I found this kit on the Home Depot site and looked like it would make doing it yourself a little easier, so I bought one. I spent less than $100 on wood, opting for the 10 foot 4x4 and bought an extra swing. All told it was about $200. Took me a weekend to assemble (they say it takes a couple hours, give me a break). You will definitely need someone to help you, at least when you get to the point where you need to flip it upright. The instructions were pretty clear and easy to follow. I can't think of anything negative to say about it. We've had the swingset for a couple months now and my daughter loves it. Don't buy the big, expensive swing set. This is all you need. Do it yourself and save money!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as advertised - but cheap So, shipping was fast, the manufacturer's box was the only packaging. Mine arrived undamaged, but you might not be so lucky. The box contains bags with parts and an assembly sheet. The bags with the parts also contain assembly sheets. The different assembly sheets do not give you the same instructions. So if you, like me, accidentally follow the instructions on one sheet and you were supposed to follow the instructions on the other sheet, you will have to go out and buy different hardware than is included in the box. The quality is fair, typical Chinese manufacturing. The steel parts are fairly soft and bend easy, the screws strip out easy. But if you are careful, it goes together fairly easily and seems to support my 50 lb daughter OK. Not a 1 hour assembly as advertised - doing it myself, I am quite handy - 3 hours.

In my case, I bought a 10-foot long beam instead of the 8-foot so that I could add a third swing. The instructions that come with this kit include this option. As others have reported, the biggest challenge I faced was attaching the A-frames to the top beam. I had trouble lining up the bolt holes. This was easily remedied by reaming the holes out a bit with my drill. Otherwise this kit is pretty self explanatory. I can't say I'm a huge fan of the star screws and the included star screw bit because the bit wore down towards the end of the project and started stripping the screws. For the third swing, I bought the heavy duty hanging hardware so that larger kids (above the 115 rating of the included standard duty hardware) could also swing. The anchoring system is acceptable, and works fine even when my 140 lb teenager is swinging, but I'd suggest a sledge hammer to drive them instead of regular hammer. Overall this project took me 5 hours to complete, with my only assistance coming from my teenage son when it came time to attach the A-frames to the beam and to tilt the whole assembly to vertical. Plan your time accordingly, because as many others have said, this isn't a "One-Hour" project as the product name would lead you to believe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swing Set kit Excellent kit for the do-it-yourselfer. Even included a drill bit for the large bolts required! The only problem we had was with the instructions calling for you to cut 3 18 inch 4x4 boards but they were never used!! Very strange. There was more than enough hardware included, much more than needed. Nice if you ever drop a screw and there are only the number needed.

Assembly leaves a bit to be desired. The A-frame connectors must be lined up EXACT or else you'll have a rough go of it. Need a couple sets of hands to maneuver lumber and move everything. Dried out and stained pressure treated lumber about 10 days prior to assembly. Overall pretty good, just not great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from swing set You buy the lumber, used green treated, was kind of heavy moving it with 2 people. Would have preferred 4 people for flipping and moving it. Overall pretty easy. You only have to cut the 2 x 4's.
