Unlike a wooden swing set, with a metal construction you don't have to worry about splinters, warping, or rough edges.

This heavy-duty backyard swing set is approximately 2 ft taller than cheaply built swing sets and is designed with 3 inch diameter steel posts at an extra-wide angle to provide greater stability. Chains are covered with soft grip chains to prevent little fingers from getting pinched. Kids will enjoy the fun. You will appreciate the safety and durability. For residential use only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great swingset We purchased this to replace a wooden set, and have been very pleased with it. Our only regret is purchasing the wooden set first and not getting one of the bigger play sets from Lifetime. The caps on the end of the top bar have popped out after some older kids were vigorously swinging, but they went back on and seem to have stayed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sturdy swing set My wife bought this swing set 5 years ago. It is so sturdy and our five kids love it, so do the neighbor kids. We first put it up when we lived in Iowa and two moves later to Wyoming it is still going strong. It survived the Iowa and Wyoming winters without a problem, since we left it up all winter long. The kids even sometimes play on it in the snow. The swings and chains are going strong. No cracks in the plastic or rubber parts. The first time setup I definitely needed the instructions, and it requires at least two adults to pick it up once it is put together. I didn't need the instructions at all to take it apart and put it together after the moves. The children have never had a problem with tipping the swing set. When a large adult swings on it the set starts to lift off the ground during a full swing, but even then I think it would be nearly impossible to tip it over. If you have adults swing on it regularly you could consider ground anchors, but we've never used them. I would definitely recommend this to family and friends or anyone who wants a good sturdy swing set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional build and design I bought this 4 years ago for our kids. It has held up incredibly well in spite of the summer and winter elements. The tall design even allows be (6'1", 225+) to occasionally swing with confidence. All the neighbors come to our backyard to play on this set. Thanks lifetime!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grandma & Grandpa's Swing Set On May 29, 1971, I married Rick. That was 45 years ago and we have been through many ups and downs. Robert Louis Stevensen wrote a poem about a swing being the “pleasantest thing ever a child could do”. A swing set was the perfect gift for a retired couple to celebrate that occasion. We deliberated for quite awhile on replacing the dilapidated play set in our backyard. We measured the play area set up with railroad ties and pea gravel before looking for a new swing set. You see the need was great as Rick and I have 20 grandchildren that come around often to play with cousins and hang out with grandma and grandpa. We bought the swing set and put in our truck and headed home. We were lucky that our son had come from out of town to help us set it up. It was Memorial Day weekend and we were anxious to start swinging. We made a morning of it and made some mistakes, so we laughed and called for help, righted the wrong and got the poles, bars, and swings set up. It didn’t take long for my grandchildren to start in on the fun, two year old, Ben didn’t want to stop. When four year old , La Rue, started swinging, she screamed with delight, “I ‘m scared, I’m scared!” The best thing about this swing set is that Grandma and Grandpa can swing, too. “Up in the air and over the wall………up in the air and down.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Swing Set We had been looking for over three months for a swing set that could handle our two boys that are 10 and 14 year old. Hard to find anything under $1,000. We purchased the swing over three years ago and it is holding up great!! I'm don't write many reviews but felt compelled to endorse this swing set. It was also fairly straight forward to put together. i did it myself and got a bit of help from my wife to stand the swing set up once assembled. You wont be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Swingset! I can feel confident having my grandchildren play on this set. So sturdy and secure. Also looks really good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built to last generations! I wanted a swing set that would last for years, and I knew I had found it in this Lifetime set. My 9 grandchildren love playing on it, but so do my grown children! We have moved it around the yard easily, yet it never rocks or shakes at all, no matter who is in it or how high they are swinging. It holds up to the weather and still looks fabulous. It is a high-quality, well-made set, and I am so happy I made the purchase! It was not difficult to put together, which was yet another great plus!
