My swing arrived without difficulty. Primary problem was that there were parts missing and the company did not respond to my inquiry. The directions did not indicate the size of the screws that were missing and they were specialty screws so I had to search for them, then guess at the size. Assembly requires 2 people, but wasn't too difficult. I love the swing, but really dislike the lack of response from the manufacturer. I'd probably rate it at 4 1/2 or 5 if the company would have at least responded to my email. I'd think twice about purchasing this company's products in the future.

I purchased this swing to put it on the covered patio of my first home which I am about to close on. After this item was promptly shipped I painted it white to match the trim of my new future home. I am very pleased with the sturdiness, quality, and price of this product. The only problem I had was the bolts and holes did not quite line up perfectly when I went to assemble it. I managed to get it aligned and tightly connected after some drilling, banging, and dragging out my tool box. I am pleased with this product and look forward to hanging it on my porch and swinging real soon!

The swing is a great value and seems very sturdy. However, it requires two people to put together. The screws do NOT line up and so it take quite a bit of time to assemble. We almost sent it back after trying for an hour to put it together then we finally got it. The provided allen wrench and screw became stripped which added to the frustration.

Very good hanging chair and great for the price. It didn't require a lot of assembling at all, just the dowels which go right in. Get an I bolt or something to hang it from and your good to go. I have one outside in my Oak tree and one hanging in the garage.

This product requires absolutely FLAT surface or anchoring to be 100% stable. Once the proper hardware was received, it was a breeze to assemble. We're enjoying it quite a bit.

I was looking for something for my front porch, so I needed it to be both attractive and comfortable. This was one of the few I found online that I thought could work in my space AND my budget. I received it in the expected amount of time, although I have to say that what arrived in the mail surprised me. Both ends of the box were torn off -- which I originally assumed was damage during transit and just counted myself lucky that all the pieces were intact -- but then I realized that this chair had clearly been owned/handled before. It was in good shape, but everything that required tying or attaching during assembly (according to the instructions) was already done. I was a bit disappointed at that realization but plowed ahead -- and I'm glad I did! As I was assembling it, I couldn't believe it would actually hold someone's weight. It's a genius design though and although there are no permanent connections between the poles and the ropes, it's very sturdy. I weigh 185 lbs and feel completely supported in it. The arm and foot rests are a really nice touch and go a long way to make this feel like a piece of real furniture. It's extremely comfortable and pretty attractive in an outdoorsy way. Plus, it's easy to move in the event of bad weather. I would definitely recommend it.

We ordered the brown swing and it was exactly how it looked on the website. We also purchased a cushion and are very pleased with both of them. No assembly required. We've had it for about 5-6 months now and it is very durable, comfortable and stylish.

This is a very heavy duty hammock stand and although we have only had it for a week or so, I think it will last quite a while. Assembly took about 5 minutes with no tools required. I would definitely recommend this to others.

I am impressed with the quality of both the hammock and the stand. It's a good thing I like it so much because I'm sure it will be around for years to come. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the duo is to put together. The stand has three bars that slide into the "feet' of the stand held there by internal metal pins. No tools required. The hammock or course did not need assembly either. The stand comes with metal hooks and chain to hang the hammock from. Just FYI.
