WARN CHILDREN: 1. NOT TO use the AIR POGO® until it is properly assembled and installed by an adult. 2. NOT TO get off AIR POGO® while it is in motion and to hold both the handle and seat when dismounting, because AIR POGO® WILL REBOUND! 3. NOT TO bounce AIR POGO® against the ground. 4. NOT TO exceed the maximum safe weight ratings: AIR POGO® models 34604/44604 were designed to be used by one child, 3 to 6 years old, weighing up to 60 pounds and models 34904/44904 by one child, 5 to 10 years old, weighing up to 90 pounds. 5.

DO NOT install AIR POGO® over concrete, asphalt, packed earth or any other hard surface. 3. Install AIR POGO® seat, at a height of approximately 3 feet (1m) above the ground, from a substantial overhead support such as a tree limb or large swing set frame. The minimum support height is 81/2 feet (2.6m). (DO NOT bounce on the ground.) 4. DO NOT attach AIR POGO® to a cantilever device such as a tree limb or swing set without first determining if the device, at the point of attachment, will support a minimum force of 300 lbs. ©2015 Air Pogo. All rights reserved. Printed in U.S.A. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: (continued) 5. If installed as instructed, the maximum fall height of this product is seven feet. 6. Secure the rope with a slip proof knot. Wrap any remaining rope around the support so that no excess rope dangles from the knot. (Our safety testing lab recommended the use of a knot instead of a clasp/fastener because of the numerous installation parameters.) EASY ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS Adult Assembly Required • Tool Needed: Philips Head Screwdriver CONTENTS: 1 - 5 ft. Center Pole with Rope; 1 - Swing Seat; 1 - Center Pole Cap; 2 - AIR POGO® Labels* & Instructions (*AIR POGODOTS model is furnished with pogodots); 6 - Screws 7. AIR POGO® can be minimally adjusted to a child’s weight by adjusting the knot; slightly raise or lower the height of the seat above the ground. AIR POGO® must not hit the ground. (TWO HALF HITCHES: This knot is suitable for tying your AIR POGO® to the overhead support. You can tie additional hitches with any excess rope.) X3. CONSUMER INFORMATION SHEET FOR PLAYGROUND SURFACING MATERIALS X3.1 The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates that about 100,000 playground equipment related injuries resulting from falls to the ground surface are treated annually in U.S. hospital emergency rooms. Injuries involving this hazard pattern tend to be among the most serious of all playground injuries, and have the potential to be fatal, particularly when the injury is to the head. The surface under and around playground equipment can be a major factor in determining the injury-causing potential of a fall. It is self evident that a fall onto a shock absorbing surface is less likely to cause a serious injury than a fall onto a hard surface. Playground equipment should never be placed on hard surfaces such as concrete or asphalt and while grass may appear to be acceptable it may quickly turn to hard packed earth in areas of high traffic. Shredded bark mulch, wood chips, fine sand or fine gravel are considered to be acceptable shock absorbing surfaces when installed and maintained at a sufficient depth under and around playground equipment. TABLE X3.1 Fall Height in Feet From Which a Life Threatening Head Injury Would Not Be Expected. Type of Material Double Shredded Bark Mulch Wood Chips Fine Sand Fine Gravel 6 in. depth 9 in. depth 12 in. depth 6 6 5 5 10 7 6 7 11 12 9 10 X3.2 Table X3.1 lists the maximum height from which a child would not be expected to sustain a life-threatening head injury in a fall onto four different loose-fill surfacing materials if they are installed and maintained at depths of 6, 9, and 12 in. However, it should be recognized that all injuries due to falls cannot be prevented no matter what surfacing material is used. X3.3 It is recommended that a shock absorbing material should extend a minimum of 6 ft in all directions from the perimeter of stationary equipment such as climbers and slides. However, because children may deliberately jump from a moving swing, the shock absorbing material should extend in the front and rear of a swing a minimum distance of 2 times the height of the pivot point measured from a point directly beneath the pivot on the supporting structure. X3.4 This information is intended to assist in comparing the relative shock-absorbing properties of various materials. No particular material is recommended over another. However, each material is only effective when properly maintained. Materials should be checked periodically and replenished to maintain correct depth as determined necessary for your equipment. The choice of a material depends on the type and height of the playground equipment, the availability of the material in your area, and its cost. MAINTENANCE At the beginning of each season and twice monthly during the season: 1. Check nut and bolt below the seat, the four seat screws, and the two cap screws. 2. Treat rope and bushing in top safety cap with a Teflon based lubricant (such as Super Lube). DO NOT use a petroleum based lubricant. 3. Check the rope, knots, handle, top and bottom caps and seat for evidence of deterioration, excessive wear, fractures, breaks, sharp edges and replace as necessary. The AIR POGO® rope has a red indicator core. If you see the red indicator core, your AIR POGO® rope needs to be replaced. Discontinue use immediately. Replacement parts may be ordered online at www.airpogo.com/parts. 4. Take AIR POGO® indoors when the outside temperature drops below 32°F. 5. If these checks and inspections are not carried out, AIR POGO® may cause a fall. However, when made at the prescribed intervals, these precautions will provide for long-lasting and safe use of this fun toy. Any misuse of this product could cause serious or fatal injury. 6.
