When I ordered the swing, chain and hardware was also shown on the page. I assumed I would need these things as they were shown. However, the swing came with chain and all hardware. I then had to return the chain to a Home Depot store. If these things were not shown on the page, I would have assumed the swing would come complete with chain and hardware. I think it is confusing to show equipment that is not usable or necessary on the web page, which caused me to be inconvenienced when I had to return the extra chain.

My wife loved it and uses it almost every day I was a bit skeptical putting it together but was quite impressed with the finished product.

I am very good at putting things together; however, this was ridiculous. It took four hours to just assemble it. Every single piece had to be assembled. I understand that had to have some assembly, yet I would have thought it would be partially assembled. The instructions were horrible.

Wonderful quality, a surprisingly generous amount of chain and the color is much prettier than in the photo. It was a quick and easy assembly and we are very pleased with our new swing.

We put this swing up in my Moms carport. The last time there was a swing there was 40 years ago, my Mom has spent hours each day since it was put up relaxing on it . Two thumbs up, this swing is fantastic.

Took a while to put together. It does come with chains so no need to purchase them separately. So far so good. Great value and comfortable.

    Went together very easy. Took me just over an hour. Home Depot recommends that you purchase a chain set, don't do it the chain comes with it

    1. It comes with chains, so you don't need to buy them separately. 2. Lots of pieces. It took me 2 hours to assemble, but I'm slow. Would go faster with 2 people. 3. It says 'hardwood' but not as hard as, say, hickory. Harder than redwood. 4. Some of the slats were not finished well and may require additional sanding if you are picky. 5. Some of the slats were warped but this didn't turn out to be a major problem. 6. Hardware is plated and should stand up to the weather. 7. About 1/2 of the nuts were 'acorn nuts', which are used to protect the sitter from catching their clothing on the protruding screws. The arm rests and chain hardware did not have acorn nuts and could be a hazard. I would recommend to cut off the excess screw length on these fasteners and grind them smooth, a minor annoyance. 8. The slats, except for the top slat, come in two widths. The instructions say to alternate narrow and wide. I followed the picture and ended up with a wide slat on a curved section of the tubing. When I tightened the hardware the slat cracked because of the gap between the slat and the tubing because of the curve. My recommendation is to place a narrow slat in this area instead of a wide slat which should help prevent cracking the wood. I checked the 'no' box to recommend this product only because there were just two options. I would have checked 'yes' if all the nuts were acorn nuts.

      love it. like that the chain is a gold tone. In assembly, get your hex and acorn nuts separated. hex goes under in the center and under the arm rests. acorns should be used in areas you can see. looks nicer. we put two coats of Tung Oil on, very shinny and more weather proof. looking for more places to hang swings.

      Hard to put together because holes did not match. Front seat boards are not even . One side is higher than the other. My husband had to drill different holes and cut some boards that were not the right size to fit in metal arms. Not as good as what I expected. Works but not as nice as the picture.

      It was a surprise birthday present for my girlfriend and she was really surprised. Assembly was fast and easy, instructions were very well lauded out because the grandparents put the bench together for me. When people ask where I got the bench, I tell them Home Depot. Com. Thank you very much
