Customer Questions & Answers

Is the swing weight limit based on the frame and wood? or the swing itself?

Would like the whole family to be able to swing on it together - Mom, Dad, Kids - Thoughts?
Asked by: dekahns
This is due to the hardware, if you look at the hooks of the swing they are quite small. When testing the beam we had two full grown men swing, by hand, from the beam a total of 400 pounds and the beam didn't budge. I do believe the swing has a limit as well, again due to the latch used to attach the swing seat to the chains.

What length do I have to buy the slide?

Asked by: Tatian
We bought a 7.5 foot slide. The angle of the slide determines the height. The slide attaches to the tower at 4 foot high.

How much overall space do I need to install and build this

Asked by: AJ
The instructions ask for about 28x28 feet to allow for 6 foot clearance for swings and other climbing features. However, that does not have to be a 28 foot square. Download the instructions and see the actual shape of the area you need: its more like a broad plus sign (+). To do the construction you actually need more space than that since the hardware and lumber have to lie around somewhere.

If I go with the 4x6x16 beam, can the swing set support another swing or teetertoter or two? I can countersink the hardware so the existing parts work as well. Would you recommend moving the a-frame out 2 feet in that case? Thanks
Asked by: Donnie
Anything is possible, but having said that, the four by four is not what causes the weight restriction on the swings it's the hardware. Countersinking a T-nut will take away a great portion of the 4x6's strength. You would be much better off selecting a good piece of wood for the beam, putting the grain the best direction, and building an extra a frame swing set out of 4x4's and adding a teeter totter on the outside of the two a frames.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good playset but not an easy build. First, let me qualify this - I didn't buy this playset but h... Good playset but not an easy build. First, let me qualify this - I didn't buy this playset but helped my daughter assemble it. it took us about 15 hours each over two days and I am an experienced woodworker and have completed countless carpentry and other construction projects over 45 years of home ownership. She knows her way around tools and is strong from years of crossfit competitions. The 6-8 hours estimated assembly time I saw in the instructions are misleading. If someone is NOT experienced with construction and doesn't have a good cordless impact driver and drill with strong batteries, don't attempt this without finding a friend who does. A few suggestions: 1. Make sure you keep your drill/driver batteries charged. Lots of screws and lag screws need to be driven, so it takes a toll on your batteries. Mine are Porter-Cable 20V Lithium and still had times where I only had one battery and had to switch out the battery between drill and driver. In fact, if two people are working on this at the same time, it would be advantageous for both people to have a set of drills and drivers. A corded electric drill would help with drilling but would be tough on the small screws or lag screws if used for driving those. NOTE: The parts kit includes the driver bits and 3/8" drill bit (for swing beam connectors) needed for this assembly. Find those before you go out and purchase some. I emphasize that you need to drill holes in the connecting pieces before driving screws and lag screws. If not, you risk splitting, particularly the thing pieces, the pieces when driving close to the edge or end of a piece. 2. Some 8" or larger quick release clamps would help to hold some of the pieces while attaching, particularly if working on those sections alone. 3. Some portions of the assembly take 2 people at a minimum, such as installing the swing beam/A-frame upright to the structure. In fact, depending on the strength of the people, may need 3 to do this. Also, installing the monkey bars to the structure takes 2-3 people, as well as raising and attaching the canopy frame to the top of the structure. 4. Related to the monkey bars, I suggest waiting to dig the holes for the monkey bar support uprights until you have that section assembled and know how big it is and where the holes need to be. The suggestion in the instructions were off and required us to dig the holes all over, plus fill up the first set of holes. 5. Make sure you have a level and square - that is essential for ensuring you get the structure square and level. 6. Read the instructions thoroughly BEFORE starting assembly to get an idea of the order of construction and to familiarize yourself with the parts and pieces. Pay attention to the thicknesses of parts called for in each step so you don't use a 2X4 when a 1x4 is required. Also, pay attention to the size of screw called for - lag screws vs. screws, particularly. 7. If you have the room and time, and the weather cooperates, it could be helpful to layout the parts in like pieces on a tarp so it's easy to grab the ones you need at any particular stage. 8. Get the straightest 4x4s you can. This helps fitting things together. 9. Since the lumber in kits like this, and from a lumber yard, is not perfectly straight or flat, you may need to use a rubber mallet or hammer and block of wood to force some parts together. All of the pieces in this kit wound up fitting fine after some persuasion or after screwing together. 10. The brackets for the cross brace that supports the swing horizontal support beam on the play structure itself is oversized. The bracket is actually 4" square while the supplied support beam is a nominal 4x4, so only an actual 3.5"x3.5". I think this is the only poor quality part in the whole kit but even oversized, it works. 11. If you have the time, buy the required 8' and 10' 4x4s a few days or week ahead of when you plan to assemble the playset. Most treated 4x4s can be wet when purchased. Buy them early and keep dry and ventilated to allow them to dry a bit. They'll be easier to handle during assembly and won't be as messy. 12. I plan to sand down or plane some of the sharp edges on the 4x4s and other parts of the play structure to minimize effect of sharp edges and corners. I don't think it is bad as assembled now but just want to make it a bit more safe for the grandkids. The structure is well built and has a lot of interesting features to suggest it. The printed instructions are mediocre with fine line drawings and a lot of small print that required younger eyes than mine to interpret. I question the suggested spacing of the rungs for the monkey bar and my daughter is going to have her 5 year old try them out to see if we need to move the rungs about 4" each along the beams.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Swing set This was a great piece. Was not a fan of the extra parts needed being fine print. The slide and large lumber were not included in the cost of the playset. Assembly was at least a 2 man job and took over 18 hours. Extra bits had to be bought, the ones provided were to short. Once the project was finished the kids loved it plus it stands up to the test of older kids

I could have built something by scratch but it would have been close to the same cost and way more labor. I started by laying all of the pieces in a row by size and then length and checked that they were all there. I would recommend this as it saves a ton of time finding the next piece. I built it by myself except for putting the two halves of the platform supports together, I needed my wife to hold half of it while I put a couple screws in. I predrilled every hole, do this you will be much happier. Also I oriented the grain of the swing beam so it was parallel to the ground, and chose a good, straight grained, knot free, piece at HD. Every screw, nut, bolt, and piece of wood i needed was in the box except for the required 4x4's and slide. That was huge to me, I hate when you get something home and realize you need more supplies. The instructions were well written and easy to follow. It is really sturdy and my kids love it. We bought a baby swing to go where the trapeze bar will eventually go and it is perfect. We also bought the ship wheel and telescope and it fully entertains all three kids. It's been about three weeks since I built it and I absolutely have no regrets. The only complaint I really have is my local HD does not sell pressure treated pine, so the color of the 4x4's is different. Having said that it still looks good, the contrast works.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Need to read fine print Because this set was called swing and SLIDE I thought the slide came with it. NO you have to spend another $99 to add the slide and also several 4x4s so you can complete the set. So a $349 set turned into a $519 set when all pieces have been purchased. Not what is advertised. The set does look good when put up and complete. Just make sure you read the fine print so you know how much you are spending

Lots off things to do to keep the kids entertained. The assembly however.... its not for the faint of heart. The instructions seemed to be written by some one who just went through a bitter divorce and knew their ex was going to have to put one together. I have built decks, framed houses, installed roofs and none were as big of a hassle as this. The bracket system is a bad bad joke and the installation instructions for the roof had to be included on a dare or a bet. I suggest that you take your time, cement some posts into the ground and build a play set the old fashion way. You can buy all the swings and slide separate along with anything else you want it to include. It will turn out better and take far less time. Takes about 20hrs to assemble by yourself and you will need help for the roof.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall pleased There are a few areas where the directions are vague. Example: the brackets that go on the 4x4's can be a little tricky. Overall pleased. The play set is very sturdy and a great size. We worked on it for about 3 hours one day with 3 people and got most of the frame and heavy parts up and finished. The second day took about another 3 hours with 2 people to finish the roof and the finish pieces. We did not install the monkey bars and closed in the back wall. The lag screws are relatively good but the main 2.5" screws the set comes with are not the best. However, we did not drill pilot holes for the most part and everything went together fine. An impact driver was very handy for driving all the screws over a standard drill. Some reviewers didn't realize it needed extra lumber (4x4's) but it is clearly marked on the box and online.... it was a fun weekend project that I think we will get many years of use out of.

When I bought the product come to find out you have to buy more and more parts to put it together. Cannot put together without those parts. Also to have it last like home depot says it will in the whether you have to stain it yourself. Huge waste of time to put together. Took forever! Don't waste your time, just go get a metal one.
