This took about 20 mins to put together - but I was watching the Royal wedding so maybe faster if paying attention. The rope does slide a bit but I think a knot will stop that. The color is rich and it looks very expensive - even my grumpy Mom liked it!

Love the swing! Took me 15 minutes to put it together. The pieces are solid, heavy and sturdy. The ONLY con is the ropes they use to hang it. As nice as the swing is, having vinyl roping to hang it just doesn't look right. I'm going today to buy chain to hang it with. None-the-less, the swing is a great deal. Something comparable to the quality would cost at LEAST double around here so I don't mind spending a few extra dollars on a chain. I could kick myself for not taking the old chain off my old swing before I took it to the dump!!!

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Better than I expected. The wood is very heavy and durable. I suspect with proper care it will last for many years to come.

The swing is pretty well built. The ropes are nice too. I hung it from a tree with a couple I-bolts and zip tied the ropes at the top to stop any movement.. It was pretty easy to assemble, 5 pieces with a half dozen large screws. I glued it too.
Depending on your budget, this is a good buy. The ropes that it hangs from are too short so I ended up having to go to *** to buy chain to extend the length by a few feet and buy all the hardware to hang it. I looks nice and seems sturdy though.
We received the swing before we were expecting it so shipment was quick. Assembling it was so easy. The ropes are a little too long but I think we have modified those enough. Our grandkids and I love to swing together and chat so that's a plus.
Lovely swing. I loved the look of the rope but it is way too short for our 9 ft porch ceiling. It also doesn't come with any hardware to hang it from the ceiling. Had to buy new rope and searched all over for galvanized eye screws and locking carabiners to hang it. Had it not been on sale, I'd be more disappointed with all the extra expense because the rope and hardware wasn't that cheap or easy to find. I researched how to hang it on this old house. But the swing itself is exactly what I wanted and I still like rope better than chain. Haven't hung it yet as I'm waiting for my hardware ordered elsewhere to be delivered.....
I order the swing and I didn't have the opportunity to put it together for a few weeks. I ike the swing however, since I was delayed assembling it closer to return policy - I would have sent it back. It was used and dirty and you it had been repackaged. The cost to ship it back wouldn't have been worth the trouble to send it back. Once it was assembled it looks nice and sturdy and I'm curious how it will hold up. Overall, I pleased with the product but wished I would have open the box upon arrival.
The quality of the swing was as expected - well built, nicely finished, quality construction. As with most imported products, the assembly instructions were a brief one page "follow the pictures" which proved adequate for the level of assembly required. Unfortunately, the hardware package which included a handful of bolts, nuts, and washers, was missing all four "A" connecting bolts which are needed to attach the bench seat to the frame. With some persistence, I was able to find a suitable substitute at a local hardware store. This resulted in taking longer to assemble the swing, but did not prevent us from enjoying it once assembly was completed.
The swing came in one box with tools. Took me 30 minutes to assemble and a few more moments to hang. Great swing. My wife loves sitting there with our grandson. He loves "swingin.'" Wonderful addition to our front deck. Got cushions and back cushions and now we are in business.

I am very happy with the swing. Overall, it is a wonderful product but there were a couple of nicks in the wood. I didn't send it back because it is, after all, an outdoor swing but I was a little disappointed to get a brand new swing with some scuffed places already on it.

The swing and the hardware are good quality. The ropes were too long so we had to figure out a way to shorten them. I like the look of the ropes and did not want to revert to using chains. The shipping container was damaged and as a result a piece of the swing was slightly damaged. I was disappointed but decided that to return the product was not worth the hassle. I love the swing and would purchase again.

Excellent shipping, the swing was delivered in two days. It was easy to assemble, but not as easy to hang. When tightening the bolts that hold the rope, the caps on the bolts broke off - so we have bare screws poking through the bolts. The ropes appeared to be of different lengths as the swing hung slanted. We decided to purchase chain link to hang the swing, which enabled us to adjust the level. It's a nice swing, and a good value, just took us awhile to install it.
