Tire Swing is design to hang from swing hangers that will swing back and forth. If you attach it to a swivel hanger you will get the spin action.
Tire Swing uses rope to attach tire to the swing hangers. Sorry, we do not make it with chains.
Tire Swing comes with chains & rope long enough to hang from a standard 8' high wooden swing beam.
Tire Swing sells for $96.99 on www.swing-n-slide.com or it can be purchased from a retail store on line. They will set their own price. 26" is the outside diameter.
This tire swing is hung with a swivel hanger which is different than what most swings are hung with.
Thanks for asking about the Tire Swing. It is design to hang from an 8' high wooden swing beam. Not sure how much weight the tree branch will hold or how it would connect. All of our products are designed for wooden swing beams.
The tire swing offered by Home Depot does not have a free standing design option, it is only available to be placed in a swing position as part of the swing beam, either in the swing bay position inside the A Frame space or in a cantilevered position on the swing beam outside of the A Frame support space.
This product comes with a ball-swivel that is designed to be attached to a standard playset swing crossbar. With additional chain (yes, I definitely recommend using chain to extend the supplied chain), you could mount this just about anywhere. I personally mounted mine under a deck that's about 14 feet above ground.
You can definitely extend the provided chain. Given the weight this swing can hold and the fact that it comes with chain, I'd definitely use chain, not rope. I personally mounted mine under a deck that stands about 14 feet off the ground.
