Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kathie Strongest swing set I have ever seen outside of a
We bought this set for our grandchildren and they love it. It took my husband and I about 5 hours to put it together. We took a lot of water breaks because it was hot and humid that day, so it took us a while. I was very impressed with the packaging of the hardware. It was labeled well for each section. All the Â sections fit together perfectly ! I would highly recommend Â this swing set to anyone looking for quality and performance!

We love the durability of this product. Â Our grandkids are on it every time they come over. Â 6 grandkids ages 3-10. Â Fireman's pole is a big hit with the 5 year olds. Â The 7 and 10 year old love the monkey bars. Â They all love the slide, swings and trapeze! Â Couldn't be more pleased! Thanks Lifetime!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Anthony Well Engineered, Well Made, Very Good Instructions
I had no problems putting the unit together. I do have a few suggestions that I will note. It was ordered direct and shipped to my daughter's home. 2 boxes plus slide in a wooden crate. Took about 5 hours to put together with my 4 year old helper (Photo 1). All the components were wrapped with a thin film material for protection (Photo 2). All hardware was packaged on cardboard and identified. Suggestions: 1. the directions say to not overtighten. There is a thread lock material on the bolts so some resistance is normal. It is easy to overtighten the swing pendulums. Stop tightening when the supports start to bend. The gap between the support and the pendulum is normal (Photo 3). 2. Most BZO bolt assembly is through the tubes and if the BTS Nut is in place, as much as you think you are positioning the bolt to hit the blind nut, you will be off. It is far easier to put the bolt through and then orient by eye that the bolt is centered to the opposing opening that the nut goes through. Then put the nut through the opening and screw on to the bolt. Remember, it should go on easily and then meet resistance (the thread lock material). If it doesn't go on easily don't force it as you may be crossthreading the nut to the bolt. Also, where the holes are near the ends of the tubes, look through the end of the tube to position the bolt to the nut. Far easier than working blind. 3. The directions don't call for a level. You need one to level the unit side to side and front to back. 4. After the monkeybar frame is standing upright and the triangular leg and swing support horizontal is attached, I would suggest using 2 phillips screwdrivers in place of the bolts until leveling and positioning is correct. Again, no mention is made of leveling but you need to get the leg assembly in place and the added play with the screwdrivers lets you position everything before putting the bolts in. (Photo 4).
Finished successfully! (Photo 5). Full disclosure, I got my Mechanical Engineering Degree 40 years ago and I have put together numerous swing sets and I repeat that this is very well engineered, the instructions are well done and it was well packaged. My comments are to help others that haven't tackled a project like this. Sorry, the website wouldn't upload my photos. Awaiting assistance from the website. Anthony

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dbuk02 Best swing set with monkey bars on the markey
We bought this 4 weeks ago. We needed a set with freestanding monkey bars, did not want to have to cement into the ground, and did not want a huge wood playset in our yard. This set is SOLID, easy to install, and delivery was a breeze!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Likeit123 Very high quality!
Very nice Play Set. Shipped right to our house. Went up easy, maybe three or four hours set up. Super heavy construction. Swing swivels are heavy cast or forged and have brass bushings. Plastic over chains is molded on the ends and not just a slip over cover. I'm very happy with this set and anticipate it will serve our needs for a long, long time.
