When it arrived, I was so excited and now that it's together I'm more excited! Putting it together was as simple as "one, two, three". Having only one bar to barely block your view is wonderful! Living on the water you don't want the view blocked! The construction is sturdy and I've swung on it and had no problems as other people have mentioned. Now Im not talking a full swing but a steady rocking or spinning (softly), I had no incidents (so far). I'd say if you're thinking about it...buy it, you won't be sorry!
