I purchased this swing to replace a swing I already had a high quality stand for. As we would use it a couple of times each summer, I figured it would be adequate. A few of the slats were already cracked when it arrived. It suggests staining before putting it together. I would not have spent the time painting it, if I new how flimsy it is. It looks better than nothing, but that is the best thing I can say. I have an upcoming party and wanted a swing for my existing stand. My teenage 170 pound son sat in it and pointed out how he can push the slats down with his thumb. He said I should have spent the extra money on a better one, as the lawsuit we will get when it breaks on someone will cost plenty. Guess I will have to put a sign on it "for children only". :(
