Did anyone else notice that the product name is spelled wrong: should be Sportspower, not Sporstpower! I just finished assembling this set for a Christmas present, so my review is based mostly on that experience. The set was shipped in one large box, and although there was some damage to the box, nothing inside was affected. One plus is that all of the hardware is separated into individual sections on cardboard stock with clear plastic windows, and clearly labelled on both the front and back sides of the cardboard. No missing hardware nor swing set parts! The hardware packaging also includes the tools necessary to install the set with the exception of a Phillips and flat head screwdriver and tape measure, but that is mentioned in the assembly instructions. Huge minus: the assembly instructions are the main reason I downgraded this set to only average. They are typical of lower priced Asian-made products, some grammatical and spelling errors, but absolutely terrible CAD drawings. Photos would have been much more helpful. I needed an extra pair of hands on just a few items, but this was not a difficult assembly by any means. The weakest part was actually something that could have been its strongest asset: the set uses thick plastic washers that have a notch into which a plastic cover snaps to protect little arms and legs from exposed nuts and bolts. Great idea, until you actually tighten the nuts, at which point the washers disintegrate. I will need to use a rubber sealer to cover the hardware instead. The slide is really the one part I doubt will last very long, and certainly will not be useful for a child over the age of five. It is not sheet metal, it is a sheet of plastic sandwiched between blow-molded rails. The steps are very thin metal and quite narrow, to make matters worse. Please note that this swing set should be used for younger children only, by that I mean roughly ages three to eight. The carton says that it can accommodate seven kids at 100 lbs. each, but in my opinion, that is a recipe for scrap metal. For the money, though, it should be fine for a few years' use.
