Installation: Our parts are sold as either replacement parts or components of a set, unless you are buying our Metal Frame Set, therefore these parts need to be installed according to the sets installation instructions.

Drill 3 holes spaced evenly in the real tire. Take the nut & washer off and place on the under side of the tire. Put eye bolt through the hole and screw washer and nut in. You will need to use S-hooks or shackles from the chain to the tire eye bolt. Make sure the S-hooks are closed to within .04 to meet ASTM safety standards.  All fasteners must be closed according to Figure A1.19.  To do this you will need to use our S-hook pliers or a regular pair of channel lock pliers. Close according to Fig A1.19 for Fastening Devices.  WARNING: Once the S-hooks have been opened they will have to be replaced to avoid injuries from coming open and/or breaking. 

Maintenance: At beginning and end of each play season and once a month during play season, check for sharp edges and/or cracks especially around eye bolts. Check for vandalism. Check for rusty or worn chain. Replace parts if necessary. Check to make sure S-hooks and/or shackles are closed properly. Maintain detailed inspection and maintenance records for public-use playground equipment.

Any damage from vandalism, abuse or misuse VOIDS all warranties.
