Attached this swing to a wood play set we build for our grand kids. Sturdy, safe, secure and best of all the little ones really LOVE swinging in this swing. Both are under 2 years old, and have fallen asleep while swinging. I highly recommend.
I wanted to really really like this. Perhaps my eyes were bigger than my husband's capabilities! The manual and all the products are laid out very orderly and it appears very easy to follow. However once you begin looking at all of the instructions, you realize how much work it is to go get all the wood you need and all the cuts you need. This is definitely a much bigger project than we were anticipating. I ended up selling this at a garage sale a couple of months back.
First let me say now that it's FINALLY together it's the best swing set. Now to the awful part. When you buy it, pay someone else to deal with the company's horrible packaging and mistakes. First, the boxes and marked 1 of 3, 2 of 3, 3 of 3. Nothing about a 4th piece which is the slide. So when you buy it, insist you get all pieces. The slide is NOT in the 3 boxes. Now open the boxes and instructions. The instructions say things are marked with letters. It would make life so much easier if they were. Only about 10% were marked and they were the parts that were obvious. My husband who assembles things all time, started struggling through it, but we were following directions to a "t". When we got to part of step 3, we realized we were sent two swing poles instead of 1 swing pole and 3 regular poles. It was a nightmare. It was too late to try and take apart so we ended up drilling holes to make it work. The roof didn't fit right but we finally made a way to make it work. Based on that whole experience I wouldn't recommend anything from Lifetime unless it comes with professional installation. Now that it's together, it's solid and we are happy, but not worth the tears we cried or getting injured over fighting to get things to fit.
