Obviously this isn't the sturdiest swing given the low cost. It's what I expected. We will be mindful not to have too much weight on it-i primarily wanted it as a focal point to take the place of children's swings on a frame, now that my children are grown. It looks nice and the price was right :)

Swing was easy to assemble and wood was of good quality. The wood slats and frame are a little on the thin side and questionable as to how it will hold up to the 500Lb weight limit. Been using it about 2 weeks now and no problems. About what I expected for the price.

Excellent price. Easy to assemble and ready to stain or paint as you'd like. If this is your primary seating you may want to invest in a more expensive swing. It is a bit narrow and felt like it was tipping forward so we adjusted the front chains so it tilts back more. Overall would purchase again.

Hello fellow readers :) I know I read these reviews to get a better idea of what I am buying. I hope some of the information I provide will do just that - help make an informed decision. For the price, this swing works - period. It is sturdy, the materials match the price (chain grade, hardware, and wood) and aesthetically the swing is nice looking. Now, keep in mind that this swing is made in China. Yes! I did not know this and this is one of my dilemmas lately - finding products that don't come from China! I look and look and look and most of the time it is not listed in the product descriptions. It drives me crazy, to no end, to think that there is no manufacture in this country that can duplicate the simplicity of this product and make a profit - ugh! Any-who, bottom line, this swing is worth the fifty bucks and if you stain it and treat it reasonably, I'm thinking you can get a few years out of it. Happy trails...

Ordered 3. One was missing the bottom support brace and probably won't last. For the price they are hard to beat, especially since the chains and hardware are included. Seat angle was bad. Had 4 guests fall off them. Shortening up the front chains by 2 links helped. Overall, just OK

Over all a good product, easy to assemble, wished it was prefinished. Need to use better staples or more in the seat slats. Some popped loose. Have had for a couple of weeks

This was easy to assemble and it's very sturdy. The seat is a nice deep seating area, not a skinny sitting area from knees to back. And it's plenty wide.

The purchase was easy to put together and looks really nice. Not really sure how much weight it will take, so if you buy one I suggest you look into that, but it should be perfect for my wife and I to sit on when enjoying a quiet night in the back yard, which is what I bought it for in the first place!

While sitting on my swing yesterday 5/27/2018 the screws in the back on the swing pulled out and i went for a fall off the back, lucky my boyfriend caught me, so i did not hit the porch,it did scratch my back though.This should be better made with nuts and bolts.
