Customer Questions & Answers

can you make the monkey bars free standing or does it have to attach to an existing play structure?

Asked by: Anonymous
If you want to build a frame, certainly! The kit does not come with a frame, only bars and screws.

How long are these bars?

Asked by: Anonymous
24 inches wide. The instructions specify that the frame should be 23-1/4 inches wide.

What are the weight specifications?

Just ordered these then noticed there is a 75 lb. weight capacity in the details, although in the description it specifies a weight capacity of 300 lbs. I'm confused.
Asked by: Anonymous
The weight capacity in the package says 75 lbs. but the bars support me at 200 lbs while doing pull ups.

What about the wood supports for these monkey bars?

The monkey bar kit looks like what I want but are there specific wood supports designed for this so it matches the rest of the swing set? I can't seem to find a "kit" offered to add on to the existing swing set. Does that mean you have to create/cut your own, stain it etc and it won't match? Or is there a separate kit to order for that part of the swing set to make the monkey bar section?
Asked by: Anonymous
You can usually order monkey bar kits through your swing set manufacturer. However, I used 4x4 posts to make a free standing unit that I will stain the same color as the playset.

Monkey Bar Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent product, online instructions are outdated. Build seems ok. A bit pricey for 6 metal bars. Note that the online PDF instructions are out of date. The booklet that came with mine say 22" between horizontal beams, instead of the 23 1/4" that the online PDF says.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value for DIY monkey bars These were the best value monkey bars I could find on the web (nice job on the free shipping HD). I bought 2 sets of 6 and used 9 for monkey bars and the remaining 3 for a ladder on one side. The included instructions are clear and can either be followed exactly or used as a basis for modification. If you want to add monkey bars to a basic wooden play structure, these will work great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good component to a full assembly This is not a full assembly. You need to provide the frame and much of the hardware. That said, it's a great bargain. The monkey bars appear to have a very good powder coating on them which should last many years outside in the weather. They look similar to the bars used on structures on school playgrounds etc. The mounting holes are slotted so there's some forgiveness on the 23-1/4" dimension on the instructions. You will need a post hole digger to dig the (2) 18" deep holes to set the 4x4's. The wood-loc washers are included with the kit. They're very useful and something that HD or Lowe's doesn't carry (at least in my town). Be aware they're NOT 3/8 which is probably the most common carriage bolt size. Instead, they're 5/16 which is a little smaller than I'd like. I ended up using 3/8 hardware because my structure will see some hard use. Because of this I had to source my own 3/8 wood-loc washers which wasn't easy. The instructions specify 12" bar spacing but I found this to be a little too tight. I instead went with 13" but you could probably even go a little more if you wanted to. Spacing them out a little more like this really covers the length of an 8' long 2x6 very well. The top ladder rung was too low for my 6yr old to be able to reach the bars. I had to change the spacing of the rungs slightly but I was still able to cover the elevation with two rungs. Other than the above, I pretty much followed the instructions to a tee. You really can't go wrong if you're willing to break out some tools and make a project out of this. If you're not a DIY'er you will probably need someone to help you. Then again, I mounted mine to a custom structure so it was probably a little more involved than mounting it to a Timber-Bilt play set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product was simple to install with great instructions Ordered monkey bars on line and picked up at my local store which was quite convenient. They came with instructions on how to install and build full monkey bar to attach to swing set. Bought lumber and hardware when I picked them up and had my Granddaughter swinging in two days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Product, Good Price I bought two 6-packs of these bars to build a nice 12-foot long set of monkey bars for my back yard. The product itself appears high quality and should last for years. My only disappointment is that the product specs are inaccurate in terms of the dimensions for the bars. The product specs list the "assembled width" as 24 inches. I built my frame ahead of time, based on this spec such that a 24 inches came to the center of my frame rails. I then came to find out that the bars themselves are barely 23 inches long from tip to tip. With the holes for mounting hardware another half-inch inboard. The actual span for your frame should be 22 inches, not 24 inches. This could be corrected by listing a spec for "mounting span". This mistake was fixable without tearing down the whole frame and, of course, I could have simply waited till the bars arrived before getting the project started. Guess I'm impatient.
