Installing our products

Most of the items we sell are pretty easy to install. However, we recommend that you contact a licensed installer on anything you are not equipped to handle yourself. Below will cover a few pointers for installing some of our items.

Swings: Are you replacing an already existing swing? If so then you can purchase one of our swings fully assembled with chain and attach to your existing swing hangers. There are some things to consider with this before purchasing.

  • Are your current swing hangers usable and if so, are they open ended or closed loop? If they are closed loop our clips that come with our fully assembled swing are included and will clip right to those swing hangers. If they are open ended swing hangers the clips are not needed as you can hook your chain right to the open end of the swing hanger.
  • Do you need to replace your swing hangers? We recommend replacing most swing hangers every 2 years or sooner if there is wear. If you need swing hangers, we have several options. Some things to consider with swing hangers are beam size and if you need commercial or residential.
  • Are you just replacing your swing seat or just the chain? We offer per piece options as well with instructions on how you can attach them. Please note that replacing just the seat or chain does require tools which you may not have at home.

Accessories: Are you looking at purchasing an accessory like our periscope, telescope or steering wheel? We offer full instructions with these items as well. These items are made for attachment to a wood set. Please keep in mind that the hardware included is for that type of application.

Climbing rocks: Our rocks come in 2 sizes large and small. The hardware included in both sizes is for 5/4 board. We do offer longer hardware for additional purchase as shown in our product instructions.

Tire Swings

Tire swings can be purchased with everything included or per piece depending on what you need. You can also create your own tire swing easily with the necessary parts.

The main thing you need to consider is where the swing is going to mount. If you are replacing one this will be easy but if you plan to build one there is much to consider. Tire swings move not only front to back but also side to side and spin 360 degrees. A proper sturdy mount is needed to support that motion. A licensed installer can help with building you a suitable tire swing beam.

If you plan to make your own tire swing and not purchase one pre-built, you will need the following items:

  • Tire
  • Tire eye bolts
  • Chain
  • Hooks for top and bottom
  • Tire swivel
  • Any additional needed hardware

We offer all these products on our website and you can also purchase a tire swing kit that will include some or all of these items.
