DO NOT allow the use of Air Swing Original / Air Swing Xtreme by children without adult supervision.
DO NOT attach Air Swing Original / Air Swing Xtreme to a cantilever device such as a tree limb without first
determining if the device, at the point of attachment, will support at least 1200 pounds.
Your swing set should have support hangers with nylon bushings similar to those illustrated. This type of hanger is
the only type recommended for use with Air Swing Original / Air Swing Xtreme. If your set does not have this type of
support hanger, you may purchase them at your local playground equipment store or online.
ALWAYS check the support structure, attachments and ropes for integrity before allowing the use of Air Swing
Original / Air Swing Xtreme.
DO NOT attach Air Swing Original / Air Swing Xtreme closer than 6 feet to an adjacent swing element capable of limited
lateral motion (where two or more chains, ropes or poles are used for suspension); or closer than 7 feet to any stationary
member of the structure when measured at a height of 28 inches above the seating surface.
TEACH children to sit in the center of their swings with their full weight on the seats.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Please Note: Observing the following statements and warnings reduces the likelihood of serious or fatal injury.
Air Swing Original / Air Swing Xtreme has been designed to provide children with all of the enjoyment and traditional fun of swings,
plus a new smooth, safe and exhilarating bouncing motion at the same time.

Follow the installation instructions carefully.
Follow the rules of safe use.
Sit on the swing seat and walk backwards as far as you can until legs are straight and you are on tip toes.
Lift your feet off the ground to begin the swinging motion. Air Swing Original / Air Swing Xtreme will do the rest and will
prolong the duration of the ride for much longer than a traditional swing.
5. Bounce Freely.
6. For maximum enjoyment of your Air Swing Original / Air Swing Xtreme, make sure that the tips of your feet lightly touch the
ground before starting and, thereafter, and create the bouncing motion by pushing up and down with your legs.
7. Traditional pumping may be used as desired. This is done by extending the legs and pulling back on the rope during
forward movement and by tucking your legs under you during backward movement.
