  • Best Kids' Swing Set I Ever Bought

    I have purchased and assembled several kids' backyard swing sets over the years, both metal and wooden. I also have had to modify or reinforce all of them in one way or the other to withstand normal play stresses. I was looking for a swing set that was somewhere between the usual backyard set and the public playground set, and one that didn't require being set in concrete or anchored down. The Lifetime unit is by far the heaviest and stoutest that I have ever seen for backyard use. The structural tubing is heavy walled and all of the fasteners are of excellent quality. Everything fit together just as described in the instructions. The only issue, and this is NOT a complaint, is that the unit is heavy enough that I needed help from my son to set it up. My granddaughter and 2 of her friends can play and swing on it at the same time, and it barely moves at all. I can swing on it with her, and it barely moves at all. The Overstock price was very reasonable, and the delivery was very fast. Overall, I am very pleased with the entire transaction.

  • Had some manufacturer defects

    The swingset is very good quality and I would recommend this product to my friends provided that their husband is a handy man and could fix the manufacturer defects. All the legs and the top bar had to be fitted together. They wouldn't fit together because of the way they had been welded together. My husband had to do some major sanding on the inside of the tubes to smooth the bump that wasn't allowing the tubes to slide together. After he fixed that, we were able to connect the legs and the top bar together. BUT, if you don't have the tools to fix that problem, I wouldn't recommend the product. There was no was we could connect it together without working on it. But my grandchildren love the swing set.

  • Backyard Swing

    Took two of us to assemble the swing because it is made of heavy duty materials. Purchased primarily for our grandchildren, but my husband and i have already been enjoying a childhood activity!! The spacing/positioning of the legs make the swing very stable, a must for safety. Can't wait to see the look of surprise and fun on our grandchildren's faces.

  • Great Swing Set for Youth Adults!

    This swing set was purchased as a Christmas Present for our 23 year old son who still loves to swing! We put this together in Montana in 10 degrees. We did as much as we could in the house and finished it outside. We originally didn't receive all of the hardware, but upon calling, it was sent immediately. My husband says it is one of the best things he has ever received as far as quality and ease of putting together. The kids all loved it and my husband and I swung on it as well!!

Questions & Answers

  • Is it possible to purchase additional "shoes" for the bottoms of the four legs of the swing just to have on hand in case the ones now in use crack or break? We currently have positioned the legs onto 8x16 inch pavers on grass so the "shoes" and leg poles aren't constantly "bombarded" by the lawnmower and/or weed-whacker when the lawn is manicured.

    • We do not sell additional replacement parts for this swing set. We recommend contacting the manufacturer for additional information regarding spare parts.

  • What is the age range for this set?

  • I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the thickness or gauge of the steel is?

    • Hello Jess, the thickness of the steel is a 16 gauge, which is approximately 1.5 mm. Thank you for shopping with us!

  • The description says it's 9' tall. What are the length and width dimensions?

    • Hello william, we try to represent the colors of our products accurately. Unfortunately, due to the difference in monitor colors we cannot guarantee that the color will match exactly what you see on your screen. Yes, set will appear like the one in the photo. Thank you for shopping with us.

  • It doesn't say... what swings comes with the frame? 2 swings and a bar as in the picture or ???

    • Hello Driftwoodtime, this includes two swings and a monkey bar as shown. Thanks for shopping with us!

  • Why did you choose this product?

    • We chose this product because our previous swingset became unsafe for the kids. We looked for many weeks and settled upon this set after reading the many positive reviews. Also, we wanted a 9 foot tall set vs. a 7 foot tall set so the children wouldn't outgrow it so quickly.

    • Because my granddaughter who is soon to be 7 and I love to swing! This frame looks like it will last to be used by her children and grandchildren! And the price was phenomenal!

    • I have been looking for a "grandparents" swing set that would also hold the grandparents, when they wanted to accompany a grandchild on the swing. i read the reviews and have decided that the set would be great for my family. I hope all goes well with the assembly, but I have a handy husband, son and son-in-law....I will supervise! :)

  • Hi, can a third swing be used in lieu of the monkey hanging bar? If so, where can I purchase it? I have three children and really need a set with three swings. Thank you.

    • Hello jessicas, yes, you are able to unhook the monkey bar and add a swing, you would be able to use any swing that has compatible clips. We do not currently sell the swing separately on our site. Thanks for shopping with us! A.S.

  • Can a toddler swing seat be substituted for one of the swing seats?

    • Hello steph148, This swing set has received excellent reviews! Unfortunately, we're not able to switch a swing for a toddler swing. I apologize for the inconvenience. I have included a link to the toddler swings we have available. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.

  • What are the actual length and width of the swing set?

    • Hello leftylowell, This is 162 inches long 125 inches wide. Thank you for shopping with us!

  • Is this set suitable for two adults to swing on at a time? (135 and 180 lbs.)

  • In reference to my anchor question below...does this set ever tip over...??

  • According to the video from Lifetime...the swing set does NOT need to be anchored into the ground...yet it 'jumps' when 2 kids get on it and are swing as in the pictore. How can I anchor it...what/how/and where can it buy anchors...Thank yu

    • We don’t have anchoring kits for the playsets. As long as the playset is level it shouldn’t lift.

  • How many boxes or deliveries should we expect?? We ordered this & were told to expect an oversized delivery; however, what we received was 2 medium size boxes via fed ex. Are we expecting more or is it only 2 boxes of equipment?

  • Can I purchase replacement swings? We are a military family, and in our overseas move, the movers lost these parts, now only having the frame.

    • You will need to contact the manufacture to purchase the replacement parts.

  • Is there any way to get a tire swing on this set?

  • Ihave a 7 year old autistic child who loves to slide and swing. Can a slide be attached to this set?

  • I have a 14 yr old autistic son who loves swings, looking for a sturdy one to handle his weight and height now and when he grows. What is the total weight limit and clearance for this swing?

    • The swing sits 9 feet high in terms of clearance.

    • Sorry about the previous answer. That was the clearance for the set from the top to the ground. Will have an answer shortly for both.

    • The weight capacity of the set is 400 pounds. Here are the safety zone specifications from the warehouse: 30 ft (9.14 m) x 35 ft. (10.6 m), Equipment should be placed no less than 6 ft (1.8 m) from any structure or obstruction, such as a fence, building, electrical wires, or overhanging branches. An 18 ft (5.4 m) clearance should be allowed in front and behind the swings.
