Love the glider, very well made, fairly easy to assemble, had a problem with holes not lining up on one side, contacted Overstock via chat, they solved my problem and shipped parts. Received parts last week, glider is assembled and I am very happy with it. It is just as described and we love it. Considering ordering the chair that matches it also in near future. Thank
We are very happy with this glider bench, it glides so smoothly and is perfect for children because it is so sturdy and safe, with no sharp corners. It is a very comfortable glider to sit on, it curves where your back and legs rest. It's all metal so it takes the weather well. We love it!
My order arrived promptly. The glider was put together with dispatch by a friend and we immediately tried it out. There is a smooth rocking motion. It is a pleasure to use & very relaxing . The family has enjoyed it immensely and it looks very pretty as well as stylish on the front porch.
The product came on time and undamaged. Great price on shipping!! The directions were definitely lacking, but perseverance and common sense allowed me to put it together (by myself) in about an hour and a half. Nice gliding mechanism. A few areas show rust already, so I can definitely see a painting in the future. Overall, I feel it's an excellent value for the money. I did a lot of searching both online and in person, and am pleased with the product as well as the service from overstock.com (this was my first purchase and first review!).
Once assembled, we loved this glider. But assembly was a bit difficult as the holes did not align for the glider mechanism easily. But after three attempts and doing things not in the order listed in the instructions, we were finally able to get it together. But otherwise, it is a great product. Definitely requires two persons for assembly. We painted ours to match the other furnishings in our backyard and it looks GREAT!
the bench is much sturdier than the average glider. I wanted a heavy piece b/c our last one was stolen. It was not hard to put together, all tools were included, and it took about 1.5 hours--one part needed two sets of hands, but mostly by myself. bench looks great. It is black, but has these whitish streaks which are supposed to be vintage looking (would have rathered all black) but it's okay. The main issue I have is that when it rains, the next day, this rust colored fluid comes out of these holes in the seat--I think I'll need to stop up those holes. Otherwise, nice looking and comfortable glider which can seat 2 adults and 1 child nicely.
I ordered this glider bench instead of the more popular Maui glider since this was rated for 500 lbs (rather than 250 lbs for the other) and I wanted something that two adults could sit on. I like the fact that there was no styrofoam packing material, just bubble wrap. However of all the furniture I bought and assembled over the past 2 months after my move this was the hardest to assemble. One side leg holes to attach the seat were misaligned to the seat by about 1/8 of an inch and as this is made of iron, bending was not an option. I tried the previously successful (with other outdoor metal furniture) trick of loosening all the bolts to see if I could get the holes aligned but no go. In the end I increased the size of each of the two holes by about 1/16 of an inch by using a metal drill bit and that combined with the loosening of all the bolts did the trick. However if I did not have the metal drill bit in that size there is no way I would have been able to complete assembly. Now other than that one issue I would give this very high marks since the package also came with most of the tools necessary to assemble this product, although I would have preferred that the included wrenches be a bit bigger so I could use my hands to tighten the bolts rather than just my fingers.

This swing is classy-looking and comfortable with or without the cushion. (I bought the black floral cushion and was very pleased with it also.) When my neighbors saw it on my front porch, they had to come over for a ride. It has a smooth glide with no squeaking. It's gorgeous!

- How is the quality of the product? EXCELLENT!

This bench is very lovely and glides smoothly. The directions were a bit off, well, actually you had to try and figure it out on your own, but my hubby put it together in about 45 minutes. We have it on our front porch and it looks beautiful. Even though it's metal, the bench is comfy without any cushion. Happy with this purchase!
I found 2 cushions to fit my beautiful Glider. Glider is 39" L x 34" W and the cushions are 42" L X 32" W. They fit perfectly . You will need cushions bottom and back for the glider to make it comfortable. My red cushions look real nice on the Black Iron glider. The glider arrived in good condition.
