Please refer to the Assembly section of the Assembly Manual for Maximum Fall Height.
Positioning Your Playcenter
1. The Playcenter is designed to be installed on a level surface by an Adult with an Adult
helper. Place in a flat area of your yard to minimize ground preparation.
2. Choose a level location for the equipment. This can reduce the likelihood of the play set
tipping over and loose-fill surfacing material washing away during heavy rains.
3. Place the equipment not less than 6 ft (1.8 m) from any structure or obstruction such as a
fence, garage, house, overhanging branches, laundry lines, or electrical wires.
4. Provide enough room so that the children can use the equipment safely. For example, for
structures with multiple play activities, a slide should not exit in front of a swing.
5. It is a good idea to place your Playcenter in an area that is convenient for adults to watch
children at play.
6. Create a site free of obstacles that could cause injuries – such as low overhanging tree
branches, overhead wires, tree stumps and/or roots, large rocks, bricks and concrete.
Additional suggestions in the Suggested Playground Surfacing Section.
7. Do not build your playset on top of surfacing material.
8. Locate bare metal platforms and slides out of direct sunlight to reduce the likelihood of serious
burns. A slide that faces north will receive the least direct sunlight.
9. Separate active and quiet activities from each other. For example, locate sandboxes away
from swings or use a guardrail or barrier to separate the sandbox from the movement of the
swings.
Suggested Playground Surfacing
Do not install home playground equipment over concrete, asphalt, packed earth, grass, carpet,
or any other hard surface. A fall onto a hard surface can result in serious injury to the
equipment user.
Do not install loose fill surfacing over hard surfaces such as concrete or asphalt.
Shredded bark mulch, wood chips, fine sand and fine gravel, are added as shock absorbing
materials after assembly. If used properly these materials can absorb some of the impact of a
child’s fall.
All surface material should extend a minimum of 6 feet in all directions around the play area.
Do not apply playground surfacing until after the unit is completely constructed. Playset should
not be built on top of surfacing.
Use containment, such as digging out around the perimeter and/or lining the perimeter with
landscape edging.
Installations of rubber tiles or poured-in-place surfaces (other than loose-fill materials)
generally require a professional and are not “do-it-yourself” projects.
Shall use Playground Surfacing Materials (other than loose-fill material) which comply with the
safety standard ASTM F1292 Standard Specification of Impact Attenuation of Surfacing
Materials within the Use Zone of Playground Equipment.

data from the supplier showing the critical height of the material when it was tested in accordance with ASTM F1292.
Operating Instructions:
NOTE: Your children’s safety is our #1 concern. Observing the following statements
and warnings reduces the likelihood of serious or fatal injury. Please review these
safety rules regularly with your children.
1. This Playcenter is designed for specific number of occupants whose combined weight should
not exceed a designated weight on the elevated floor or the swing area, the total Unit capacity
is outlined in the Basic Setup Dimensions section of instruction manual. The maximum fall
height and recommended play area is also available in the Basic Setup Dimensions section of
the manual for the specific unit.
2. On-site adult supervision is required.
3. Instruct children not to walk close to, in front of, behind, or between moving swings or other
moving playground equipment.
4. Instruct children to sit in and never stand on swings
5. Instruct children not to twist the chains and ropes and not to loop them over the top support
bar, since this may reduce the strength of the chain or rope.
6. Instruct children not to jump from swings or other playground equipment in motion.
7. Instruct children to not to push empty seats. The seat may hit them and cause serious injury.
8. Instruct and teach children to sit in the center of the swings with their full weight on the seats.
9. Instruct children not to use the equipment in a manner other than intended.
10. Instruct children to always go down slides feet first. Never slide head first.
11. Instruct children to look before they slide to make sure no one is at the bottom.
12. Instruct children to never run up a slide, as this increases their chances of falling.
13. The parents should dress children appropriately. (Examples would include the use of wellfitting shoes and the avoidance of ponchos, scarfs, and other loose-fitting clothing that is
potentially hazardous while using equipment).
14. Instruct children not to climb when the equipment is wet.
15. Instruct children to never jump from a fort deck. They should always use the ladder, ramp or
slide.
16. Instruct children to never crawl or walk across the top of monkey bars.
17. Instruct children to never crawl on top of a fort roof.
Rev12/13/12
Owner’s Manual Play Set
18. Verify that any suspended climbing ropes, chain, or cable are secured at both ends and that
they cannot be looped back on it.
19. Instruct children 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, clothesline, pet
leashes, cables and chain as they may cause a strangulation hazard.
20. Instruct children to never wrap their legs around swing chain.
21. Instruct children to never slide down the swing chain.
22. Instruct children to remove their bike or other sports helmet before playing on playground
equipment.
Maintenance Instructions:
At the beginning of each play season:
• Tighten all hardware.
• Lubricate all metallic moving parts per manufacturer’s instructions.
• Check all protective coverings on bolts, pipes, edges, and corners. Replace if they are loose,
cracked, or missing.
• Check all moving parts including swing seats, ropes, cables, and chains for wear, rust, or
other deterioration. Replace as needed.
• Check metal parts for rust. If found, sand and repaint using a non Lead-based paint meeting
the requirements of 16 CFR 1303.
• Check all wood members for deterioration and splinters. Sand down splinters and replace
deteriorating wood members.
• Reinstall any plastic parts, such as swing seats or any other items that were removed for the
cold season.
• Rake and check depth of loose fill protective surfacing materials to prevent compaction and
to maintain appropriate depth. Replace as necessary.
Twice a month during play season:
• Tighten all hardware.
• Check all protective coverings on bolts, pipes, edges, and corners. Replace if they are loose,
cracked, or missing.
• Rake and check depth of loose fill protective surfacing materials to prevent compaction and
to maintain appropriate depth. Replace as necessary.
• Once a month during play season.
• Lubricate all metallic moving parts per manufacturer’s instructions.
• Check all moving parts including swing seats, ropes, cables, and chains for wear, rust, or
other deterioration. Replace as needed.
At the end of each play season or when the temperature drops below 32° F:
• Remove plastic swing seats and other items as specified by the manufacturer and take
indoors or do not use.
• Rake and check depth of loose fill protective surfacing materials to prevent compaction and
to maintain appropriate depth. Replace as necessary.
Owners shall be responsible for maintaining the legibility of the warning labels.
Rev12/13/12
Owner’s Manual Play Set
Additional Maintenance:
• Check the swing beam and hardware every two weeks due to wood expansion and
contraction. It is particularly important that this procedure be followed at the beginning of each
season.
• Inspect wood parts monthly. The grain of the wood sometimes will lift in the dry season
causing splinters to appear. Light sand may be necessary to maintain a safe playing
environment. Treat your playset with stain regularly, to help prevent severe checking/splitting
and other weather damage.
• A waterbourne transparent stain has been applied to your playset. This is done for color only.
Once or twice a year, depending on your climate conditions, you must apply some type of
protection (sealant) to the wood of your unit. Prior to the application of sealant, lightly sand any
“rough” spots on your playset. Please note this is a requirement of your warranty.
• Assembling and maintaining the playset on a level location is very important. As your children
play, your playset will slowly dig its way into the soil, and it is very important that it settles
evenly. Make sure the playset is level and true one each year or at the beginning of each play
season.
Disposal Instructions:
When the Playcenter use is no longer desired, it should be disassembled and disposed of in such a
way that no unreasonable hazards will exist at the time the unit is discarded.
Third Party Assembly:
Customer may, in their sole discretion, elect to use a third party person or service to assemble this
product. Backyard Discovery assumes no responsibility or liability for any charge incurred by the
Customer for any assembly services’.
Please see our warranty for more information about damaged and missing part replacement
coverage. Backyard Discovery will not reimburse Customer for the price of parts purchased.

APPENDIX A
Information on Playground Surfacing Materials:
The following information is from the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission’s
Information Sheet for playground surfacing material; also see the following website for additional
information: www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/pubs/323.html.
X3. SECTION 4 OF THE CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION’S OUTDOOR HOME PLAYGROUND SAFETY
HANDBOOK9
X3.1 Select Protective Surfacing—One of the most important things you can do to reduce the likelihood of
serious head injuries is to install shock-absorbing protective surfacing under and around your play equipment. The
protective surfacing should be applied to a depth that is suitable for the equipment height in accordance with ASTM
Specification F 1292. There are different types of surfacing to choose from; whichever product you select, follow these
guidelines:
X3.1.1 Loose-Fill Materials:
X3.1.1.1 Maintain a minimum depth of 9 inches of loose-fill materials such as wood mulch/chips, engineered
wood fiber (EWF), or shredded/recycled rubber mulch for equipment up to 8 feet high; and 9 inches of sand or pea
gravel for equipment up to 5 feet high. NOTE: An initial fill level of 12 inches will compress to about a 9-inch depth of
surfacing overtime. The surfacing will also compact, displace, and settle, and should be periodically refilled to maintain at
least a 9-inch depth.
X3.1.2 Use a minimum of 6 inches of protective surfacing for play equipment less than 4 feet in height. If
maintained properly, this should be adequate. (At depths less than 6 inches, the protective material is too easily
displaced or compacted.) NOTE: Do not install home playground equipment over concrete, asphalt, or any other hard
surface. A fall onto a hard surface can result in serious injury to the equipment user. Grass and dirt are not considered
protective surfacing because wear and environmental factors can reduce their shock absorbing effectiveness. Carpeting
and thin mats are generally not adequate protective surfacing. Ground level equipment such as a sandbox, activity wall,
playhouse or other equipment that has no elevated play surface – does not need any protective surfacing.
X3.1.3 Use containment, such as digging out around the perimeter and/or lining the perimeter with landscape
edging. Don’t forget to account for water drainage.
X3.1.3.1 Check and maintain the depth of the loose-fill surfacing material. To maintain the right amount of loosefill materials, mark the correct level on play equipment support posts. That way you can easily see when to replenish
and/or redistribute the surfacing.
X3.1.3.2 Do not install loose-fill surfacing over hard surfaces such as concrete or asphalt.
X3.1.4 Poured-In-Place Surfaces or Pre-Manufactured Rubber Tiles — You may be interested in using surfacing
other than loose-fill materials – like rubber tiles or poured-in-place surfaces.
X3.1.4.1 Installations of these surfaces generally require a professional and are not “do-it-yourself” projects.
X3.1.4.2 Review surface specification before purchasing this type of surfacing. Ask the installer/manufacturer for
a report showing that the product has been tested to the following safety standard: ASTM F 1292 Standard Specification
for Impact Attenuation of Surfacing Materials within the Use Zone of Playground Equipment. This report should show the
specific height for which the surface is intended to protect against serious head injury. This height should be equal to or
greater than the fall height – vertical distance between a designated play surface (elevated surface for standing, sitting, or
climbing) and the protective surfacing below – of your play equipment.
X3.1.4.3 Check the protective surfacing frequently for wear.
X3.1.5 Placement — Proper placement and maintenance of protective surfacing is essential. Be sure to:
X3.1.5.1 Extend surfacing at least 6 feet from the equipment in all directions.
X3.1.5.2 For to-fro swings, extend protective surfacing in front of and behind the swing to a distance equal to
twice the height of the top bar from which the swing is suspended.

Play Set Assembly Manual FAQs:
1. Does the area for the playset need to be level?
Yes. Backyard Discovery recommends the playset be positioned on a flat level area for
maximum safety and durability. The stakes provided should be used to secure it firmly to the
ground.
2. What size area is recommended for the playset?
Backyard Discovery recommends at least a 6’ (six foot) perimeter around and above the playset
for maximum safety.
3. What age range is appropriate for the playsets?
Backyard Discovery playsets are recommended for children ages 3 – 10 years.
4. Is the wood treated with chemicals?
Backyard Discovery uses 100% Chinese Cedar wood which is naturally bug resistant, decay
and rot resistant. To help ensure your child’s safety, our wood is completely chemical free and
we do not use pressure-treated wood. The stain we use is a top coat using a water-based
product that is for appearance only.
5. How often should the playset be stained?
Backyard Discovery recommends the playset be stained once each year. A water or oil based
stain can be used at the customer’s discretion.
6. Why does it seem that my swing set is developing cracks?
Wood is a natural material; no two pieces are exactly alike. Each piece has its own
characteristics and personality and reacts differently to climate changes. When any wood
product is exposed to the elements, it develops “wood checks”. A check is the radial separation
of the wood fibers running with the grain of the wood. These are caused by the varying
temperature and moisture conditions. A check is not a crack – it does not affect the strength or
durability of the wood or structural integrity of the play set.
7. Do Backyard Discovery playsets come with a warranty?
Yes. All Backyard Discovery products carry a 1-year replacement warranty on all parts for
manufacturer’s defect. Our wood carries a 5 year warranty on rot and decay as well. Please see
warranty details for more information.
8. What is the best way to get started assembling the playset?
Backyard Discovery recommends taking all the parts out of the boxes and arranging them by
part number before you begin any assembly. This will not only allow faster assembly, but will
also identify any parts that may be missing or damaged so they can be replaced before
assembly. If parts are missing or need replacement, go to
Rev5/20/10 BRS
www.swingsetsonline.com/support.aspx and follow the prompts to order them. Next, read the
assembly manual and get the tools ready for the job as
recommended in the manual. If the assembly manual is lost or misplaced a new one can be
printed from Backyard Discovery’s website: www.swingsetsonline.com.
9. The playset seems to rock or sway too much. What’s wrong?
Rocking is caused by uneven ground or obstructions such as rocks, roots, etc. under the ground
rails. These should be removed and the ground underneath re-leveled to prevent rocking. Also
ensure the playset is securely staked to the ground using the stakes provided.
10. The 2”x4” boards do not measure 2”x 4”. Why not?
In the U.S. it is common practice to describe lumber dimensions using the rough cut sizes from
the sawmill and not the finished dimensions. Retailers, home stores, etc. all use this accepted
practice for describing lumber dimensions. However, Backyard Discovery playsets are designed
and constructed using the actual dimensions so everything fits properly and remains so during
the life of the playset.
11. The end beam is not straight up and down. Why not?
This is normal. Backyard Discovery designs playsets this way to ensure the strongest structure
possible. The slight angle adds strength and reduces rocking and twisting.
12. The S-hooks for the swings won’t close. What is wrong?
Backyard Discovery recommends placing them on a hard surface such as concrete (don’t do
this on anything that will dent such as metal or finished wood or glass which will break!). It will
take quite a few strokes, but the hooks will close.

not level, assembly will be difficult and improper assembly may result. Extra care must be taken to
insure the fort is square.
2) Tighten bolts securely, tighten nuts on bolts flush to the tube or member, and place caps over
exposed bolts snug to the nut.
3) Pay close attention to the ITEMS NEEDED FOR EACH PHASE. They can be a valuable aid when
sorting your wood and hardware. Assembly will be made easier if items are sorted by phase.
4) Pay close attention to make sure you are using the correct hardware in the correct phases. Using
incorrect hardware may result in improper assembly.
5) Whenever a T-nut is used, follow these directions. Place T-nut in pre-drilled hole. Tap in with hammer.
Place bolt with washers in the opposite side. Hand tighten to make sure the bolt is in the T-nut.
DO NOT over tighten.
