I have had this swing from O.co for SEVERAL YEARS. And yes, it WILL rust. I've only re-painted it one time thus far...but HEY...the wood swing I had prior to this one required even MORE maintenance. I don't mind the trade-off...because this swing is definitely more upscale in appearance. I use it ALL the time.
I was very pleased with how the swing was designed & with good solid manufacturing in the product. The packaging for shipment was also very good with extra screw & nut. I expect to get many years of pleasure out of this swing that will not be as vulnerable to the elements as the wood & cloth swings we have used in the past. A little expensive but should never need replacement. The $2.95 shipping cost was a real bonus. The only feature that would have been nice if the body of the swing was covered in the plastic/rubber coating that was on the chains ( the chain coating is a really nice feature of this swing).
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? engineering was very good as well as secure packing
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
My old cloth outdoor swing disintegrated, and I replaced it with this product. It fit in the swing set's frame. In fact, the frame and the swing are black, and they look just like they belonged together! I'm very pleased with that. I use it in my reading room and swing while reading. It was a snap to put it together. I bought a two-seater pad elsewhere, and it fit just right. I'm sure the swing is going to last a long time. I also have a three-seater set in the living room for which I'm going to have to replace the swing. I'll be ordering a three-seater swing soon!
This was my first purchase with overstock.com and I am a little disappointed. The swing came missing some parts and holes not drilled to apply the bolts I decided to fix this myself, just because of the hassle to try and send it back. I do like the swing but I am not very happy with having to do so much work to make it right. I will be a little hesitant to buy again. Thanks
I purchased this swing a couple of years ago, and it still looks just as good as it did out of the package. When I received the package, I was amazed at how heavy it was, but thanks to Overstock.com shipping, I still only paid a couple of dollars! It was easy to assemble, but one screw did present a few problems. I was able to kind of force it into place, with no ill effects yet! I had the stand custom built into our new deck, and the swing fit perfectly. It is beautiful wrougt iron, and matches all our patio furniture. It looks elegant and expensive. It seats two closely, but comfortable.
This iron swing is a major improvement over our old oak swing. Attractive and of good quality (even the hanging chains are solid and heavy-weight), we are very happy with this purchase. Although the package came minus the nuts and bolts for assembly, Overstock promptly and courteously sent out a package of the necessary hardware. Another happy customer!
I received my swing about a month ago, and absolutely love it. It is so beautiful that I hesitate to cover it with cushions. It looks just like the picture and was very easy to assemble. It is the perfect swing for two people. It will enhance any patio, porch, or garden. Keep in mind that it is a 48" swing and does not fit the traditional stands(60") very well. It does work, but is not completely centered.
This swing is incorrectly constructed and does not fit together. One of the bolts does not line up with the hole, making it 100% impossible to put the swing together. Repairing it necessitates cutting off the bolt and drilling a new hole. Disappointing, and an unanticipated extra couple of hours in assembly -- and something some people would not have the ability or tools to do. Beware.
I purchased this because the wooden one out in the yard literally fell apart. It is perfect. Made for two with mounting hardware included. I even had one sent to my son. My son did not care for the hooks used to hang it so he just modified it and it worked well. It's a nice little metal swing. Just right!
I actually bought this swing over three years ago and still love it! I get compliments all the time. This iron swing replaced a wood swing I had previously that did not hold up. I recommend this highly. It compliments my country porch setting perfectly.
The swing was delivered 5 days after I placed the order. It took my husband about 25 minutes to assemble it and put it up. We love it! We use very often, specially on weekends for morning coffee and just to relax throughout the day. I was very surprised how good it looks!
