Warnings and Safe Play Instructions
CONTINUOUS ADULT SUPERVISION REQUIRED. Most serious injuries and deaths on playground equipment have occurred
while children were unsupervised! Our products are designed to meet mandatory and voluntary safety standards. Complying
with all warnings and recommendations in these instructions will reduce the risk of serious or fatal injury to children using
this play system. Go over the warnings and safe play instructions regularly with your children and make certain that they
understand and follow them. Remember on-site adult supervision is required for children of all ages.
WARNING
SERIOUS HEAD INJURY HAZARD
Installation over concrete, asphalt, dirt, grass, carpet
and other hard surface creates a risk of serious injury
or death from falls to the ground. Install and maintain
shock absorbing material under and around play-set as
recommended on page 3 of these instructions.
STRANGULATION HAZARD
• NEVER allow children to play with ropes, clotheslines,
pet leashes, cables, chains or cord-like items when using
this play-set or to attach these items to play-set.
• NEVER allow children to wear loose fitting clothing,
ponchos, hoods, scarves, capes, necklaces, items with
draw-strings, cords or ties when using this play-set.
• NEVER allow children to wear bike or sport helmets
when using this play-set.
COLLISION HAZARD
Place play-set on level ground at least 6 feet from any
obstruction such as a garage or house, fences, poles,
trees, sidewalks, walls, landscape timbers, rocks,
pavement, planters, garden borders, overhanging
branches, laundry lines, and electrical wires. (See
OBSTACLE FREE SAFETY ZONE on cover)
Failure to prohibit these items, even helmets with chin
straps, increases the risk of serious injury and death to
children from entanglement and strangulation.
TIP OVER HAZARD
Choose a level location for the equipment. This can reduce
the likelihood of the play set tipping over and loose-fill
surfacing materials washing away during heavy rains.
CHOKING HAZARD
Prior to assembly, this product contains small parts.
DO NOT allow children less than 5 years of age near or
around loose nuts, screws, washers, plastic bags and

Protective Surfacing - Reducing Risk of Serious Head Injury From Falls.
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 F1292. There are different types of surfacing to choose from; whichever
product you select, follow these guidelines:
Loose-Fill Materials
• 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 over time. The surfacing will also
compact, displace, and settle, and should be periodically raked and refilled to maintain at least a 9-inch depth.
• 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 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.
• 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.
• Periodically rake, check and maintain the depth of the loose-fill surfacing material. Marking the correct depth on the play
equipment support posts will help you to see when the material has settled and needs to be raked and or replenished. Be sure to
rake and evenly redistribute the surfacing in heavily used areas.
• Do not install loose fill surfacing over hard surfaces such as concrete or asphalt.
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.
• Installations of these surfaces generally require a professional and are not “do-it yourself” projects.
• Review surface specifications 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 F1292 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.
• Check the protective surfacing frequently for wear.
Placement
Proper placement and maintenance of protective surfacing is essential. Refer to diagram on front cover. Be sure to;
• Extend surfacing at least 6 feet from the equipment in all directions.
• 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.
• For tire swings, extend surfacing in a circle whose radius is equal to the height of the suspending chain or rope, plus 6 feet in all directions.

Instructions for Proper Maintenance
Your Cedar Summit Play System is designed and constructed of quality materials with your child’s safety in mind. As with all
outdoor products used by children, it will weather and wear. To maximize the enjoyment, safety and life of your Play Set, it is
important that you, the owner, properly maintain it.
Check the following at the beginning of the play season:
HARDWARE:
C
heck metal parts for rust. If found,
sand and repaint using a non-lead
paint complying with 16 CFR 1303.
I nspect and tighten all hardware. On
wood assemblies DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN as to cause crushing and
splintering of wood.
C
heck for sharp edges or protruding screw threads, add
washers if required.
GROUND STAKES (ANCHORS):
Check for looseness, damage or deterioration. Should
firmly anchor unit to ground during use. Re-secure and
or replace, if necessary.
SWING HANGERS:
Check that bolts are secure and tight. Quick clips should
be completely closed and threaded clips screwed tight.
If squeaking occurs lubricate bushings with oil or WD-40®.
SWINGS, ROPES AND RIDES:
Reinstall if removed during cold season. Check all
moving parts including swing seats, ropes, chains and
attachments for wear, rust and other deterioration.
Replace as needed.
Check that ropes are tight, secure at both ends and
cannot loop back as to create an entrapment.
WOOD PARTS:
Check all wood members for deterioration, structural
damage and splintering. Sand down splinters and replace
deteriorated wood members. As with all wood, some
checking and small cracks in grain is normal.
Unprotected, they will appear weathered over time.
Periodic application of an exterior water repellent or stain
(water-based) will help improve appearance and life.
If Bolt protrudes
beyond T-Nut
Use an extra
Flat Washer
SHOCK ABSORBING SURFACING:
Check for foreign objects. Rake and check depth of loose
fill protective surfacing materials to prevent compaction
and maintain appropriate depth. Replace as necessary.
(See Protective Surfacing, page 3)
Check twice a month during play season:
HARDWARE:
Inspect for tightness. Must be firmly against, but not
crushing the wood. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN.
This will cause splintering of wood.
Check for sharp edges or protruding screw threads.
Add washers if required.
SHOCK ABSORBING SURFACING:
Rake and check depth of loose fill protective surfacing
materials to prevent compaction and maintain appropriate
depth. Replace as necessary.
(See Protective Surfacing, page 3)
Check once a month during play season:
SWING HANGERS:
Check that they are secure and orientated correctly. Hook
should rotate freely and perpendicular to support beam.
If squeaking occurs lubricate bushings with oil or WD-40®.
SWINGS AND RIDES:
Check swing seats, all ropes, chains and attachments for
fraying, wear, excessive corrosion or damage.
Replace if structurally damaged or deteriorated.
Check at the end of the play season:
SWINGS AND RIDES:
To prolong their life, remove swings and store inside
when outside temperature is below 32°F/0°C. Below
freezing, plastic parts may become more brittle.
SHOCK ABSORBING SURFACING:
Rake and check depth of loose fill protective surfacing
materials to prevent compaction and maintain appropriate
depth. Replace as necessary.
(See Protective Surfacing, page 3)
If you dispose of your play set: Please disassemble and dispose of your unit so that it does not create any unreasonable hazards
at the time it is discarded. Be sure to follow your local waste ordinances.

About Our Wood
Cedar Summit Premium Play Systems uses 100% FSC wood. Although we take great care in selecting the best quality lumber
available, wood is still a product of nature and susceptible to weathering which can change the appearance of your set.
What causes weathering? Does it affect the strength of my Play System?
One of the main reasons for weathering is the effects of water (moisture); the moisture content of the wood at the surface is
different than the interior of the wood. As the climate changes, moisture moves in or out of the wood, causing tension which can
result in checking and or warping. You can expect the following due to weathering. These changes will not affect the strength of
the product:
1. C
hecking is surface cracks in the wood along the grain. A post (4” x 4”) will experience more checking than a board (1” x 4”)
because the surface and interior moisture content will vary more widely than in thinner wood.
2. Warping results from any distortion (twisting, cupping) from the original plane of the board and often happens from rapid
wetting and drying of the wood.
3. Fading happens as a natural change in the wood color as it is exposed to sun-light and will turn a grey over time.
How can I reduce the amount of weathering to my Play System?
At the factory we have coated the wood with a water repellent or stain. This coating decreases the amount of water absorption
during rain or snow thus decreasing the tension in the wood. Sunlight will break down the coating, so we recommend applying a
water repellent or stain on a yearly basis (see your local stain and paint supplier for a recommended product).
Most weathering is just the normal result of nature and will not affect safe play and enjoyment for your child. However if you are
concerned that a part has experienced a severe weathering problem please call our consumer relations department for further assistance.

CAUTION – Protrusion Hazard
Once the assembly is tightened, watch for exposed
threads. If a thread protrudes from the T-Nut, remove
the bolt and add washers to eliminate this condition.
Extra washers have been provided for this purpose.
For bolts, tap T-Nut into hole with
hammer. Insert the hex bolt through
lock washer first then flat washer then
hole. Because the assemblies need to
be squared do not completely tighten
until instructed. Pay close attention to
diameter of the bolts. 5/16” is slightly
larger than 1/4”.
Note: Wafer head bolts with blue lock
tight or a bolt with a Ny-Lok nut do
NOT require a lock washer.
