Safety Checklist for Swing-N-Slide Accessories
Observing the following statements and warnings reduces the likelihood of serious or fatal injury
Installation Safety – Have You:
Consulted the assembly instructions supplied with your particular model?
Noted this accessory is to be used only on Swing•N•Slide approved designs? (Do not alter its design or add/remove components.)
Made sure all hardware is tightened securely? (Supplied bolt covers must also be fastened securely.)
Using a hacksaw, cut off all protruding threaded ends of bolts and other fasteners and remove any sharp edges with
a metal file as needed?
Placed the equipment on level ground, not less than six feet (1.8 meters) from any structure or obstruction such as a fence, garage,
house, overhanging branches, laundry lines, or electrical wires?
Made sure home playground equipment is not installed over concrete, asphalt, packed earth or any other hard surface? (A fall onto
a hard surface can result in serious injury to the equipment user.)
Verified that suspended climbing ropes, chain,or cable are secured at both ends?
Consulted in assembly instructions of your particular model for minimum use zones?
Followed all anchoring and shock absorbing surfacing requirements later in this guide as they apply?
Made sure not to allow children to use equipment until it is properly installed?
Operating Safety – Have You:
Determined that on-site adult supervision is provided for children of all ages?
Warned children the following before allowing them to use the equipment?
Not to walk close to, in front of, behind or between moving items.
Not to twist swing or any other accessory chains or ropes or loop them over the top support bar since this will reduce the
strength of chain or rope.
Not to swing empty seats or other accessories.
Be sure to sit in the center of the swing seat and other accessories with full weight on the seat.
Not to attach items to the playground equipment that are not specifically designed for use with the equipment such as but not
limited to, jump ropes, clotheslines, pet leashes, cables and chain. They may cause a strangulation hazard.
Not to use equipment in a manner other than intended.
Not to get off equipment while it is in motion.
Not to climb on the equipment when it is wet.
Determined that only one child per planned occupant seat should be allowed on this set at one time.
Determined children must be dressed appropriately for play. Avoid clothing with draw strings and loose fitting clothes which
could become entangled or snagged on equipment.
Determined that suspended climbing ropes, chain, or cable cannot be looped back upon itself.
Read and understood the following warning regarding the use of two and four passenger lawn swings?
Warning: Lawn Swings are designed for use by children over two years of age. Use by children under the age of two can result
in entrapment between the seats and back areas. Never place children in a rearward facing position or with legs between the
seat and backrest because the child’s body may pass through the opening causing entrapment of the child’s head.
Safety Maintenance – Have You Determined to:
Check all nuts and bolts twice monthly during the usage season for tightness and tighten as required? (It is
particularly important that this procedure be followed at the beginning of each season.)
To prevent the deterioration of materials, remove plastic swing seats and other plastic accessories and take indoors? (Do not
use when the temperature drops below 0° F.)
Oil all metallic moving parts monthly during usage period?
Check all hardware and equipment for sharp edges twice monthly during usage season? (Replace when
necessary. It is especially important to do this at the beginning of each new season.)
Check swing seats, chains, ropes and cables monthly during usage season for evidence of deterioration? Severe rusting or excessive
wear, especially near the top swing hanger or at the seat connection are evidence of chain deterioration. Cracks in the protective plastic
sleeve or seat itself are also signs of deterioration. If any of these conditions exist, call 1-800-888-1232 to order replacement accessories.
Disposal Instructions
When the equipment is taken out of service, it must be disassembled and disposed of in such a way that no unreasonable hazards
will exist at the time the set is discarded.
Important! Additional Safety Instructions for all Swing-N-Slide Playground Equipment.
Save this instruction sheet in the event the manufacturer needs to be contacted.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
INSTRUCCIONES DE SEGURIDAD
INSTRUCTIONS CONCERNANT LA SÉCURITÉ
IMPORTANT!This product is intended for single family residential use only and not intended for use in any public
setting. Placement in any public setting constitutes a misuse of this product.
REQUIRED SAFETY INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
• Once the unit is completely assembled and before children are allowed to play on it, proper shock-absorbing surfacing material
must be installed. This may be accomplished by using loose-fill materials at a sufficient depth. The Consumer Product Safety Commission
“Handbook for Public Playground Safety” lists the following materials and required depths that are sufficient for home/residential application.
For fall height protection up to 9 ft. (2.742m) [recommended for Swing•N•Slide kits]:
LOOSE FILL MATERIAL
Wood Mulch
Double Shredded Bark Mulch
Uniform Wood Chips
Fine Sand
Fine Gravel
REQUIRED DEPTH 1 INCH (mm)
(UNCOMPRESSED)
9" (229mm)
9" (229mm)
12" (305mm)
12" (305mm)
12" (305mm)
1 These depths were derived from the CPSC Handbook. Swing•N•Slide
has not done independent tests to determine these required depths.
ŃIMPORTANTE!
When properly installed, shock absorbing material will completely
cover the horizontal baseboards on climbing units. This protective
surfacing must extend a minimum of 6 ft. (1.828m) in all directions
from the perimeter of the equipment or from the outermost edges of
any component. For example, a slide extending beyond the platform
must have protective surfacing at least 6 ft. (1.828m) out from both
sides as well as the end. For swings, the protective surface must
extend at least 14 ft. out from both the back and front of the swing
when the swing is in its rest position.
Este producto es para ser usado por una sola familia en uso residential y no para usarse en
ningún lugar público. El ubicarlo en cualquier lugar público constituye mal uso de este producto.
INSTRUCCIONES REQUERIDAS PARA LA INSTALACIÓN CON SEGURIDAD
• Una vez que se haya armado la unidad completamente y antes que se permita a los niĖos que la usen, se debe instalar un material
que amortigüe para la superficie del suelo. Esto se puede conseguir usando materiales que llenen flojamente a una profundidad suficiente.
El “Folleto para la Seguridad Pública en Campos de Recreo” de la Comisión de Seguridad de Producto al Cliente, permite los siguientes
materiales y las profundidades requeridas que sean lo suficiente para una aplicación en situaciones de residencias. Para protección contra
caídas se necesita hasta 9 pies (2,742m) [recomendadas para los conjuntos Swing•N•Slide]:

Optional Laminated Beam
NOTE: Lay the lumber on a flat surface
before beginning laminated beam assembly.
24"
NOTE: Attach one end of the beam with three
2-1/2'' screws. Secure boards and attach the
other end with three 2-1/2'' screws. This will
insure that your boards will stay aligned
throughout the remainder of the beam assembly.
Fig. 18a
K. Laminated Beam Instructions
Stagger screws to
insure a sturdy
bond between
boards
1. If 4" x 6" lumber is not available, you may
laminate two 2" x 6" x 144'' pieces of lumber
together to create the beam.
2. Lay the lumber on a flat surface and align all of
the edges. NOTE: Make sure each piece of
lumber is the same length. If it is not, trim board(s).
3. From the end of each board, measure and place a
mark at 24" intervals (Fig. 18).
4. Assemble the beam by attaching each end
together using three 2-1/2'' screws (Fig. 18a).
Note: Stagger the screws as shown in (Fig. 18a)
to insure a sturdy bond. Repeat every 24" along
the entire length of the beam.When beam is
complete, measure, drill holes, and attach beam
clamps and nylon bushing swing hangers
NOTE: It is highly recommended
that screws be used when
laminating the Swing Beam.
