IMPORTANT: Please read for important information. In this material we have tried to provide some requirements stated in the CPSC Handbooks, ASTM F2373-11, F1487-11 and F1148-09. However, we in no way intend for this to be a complete list of requirements. Also these publications are updated frequently with changes therefore, you should read these publications yourself to determine if any part or installation could prove a danger to a child.
To help keep children safe from harm, review installation and maintenance instructions before installing equipment. These are located in the description of every product on our website. Download and print these instructions and keep in a safe place. Our website also has a “Product Testing Information” page. All products are tested for lead, phthalates and tensile strength. You can also call us at 1-800-227-7529 for more information or see http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/pubs/325.pdf.
Due to the thermo dynamics and lower heat transfer properties of plastics, they insulate better and don’t transfer the heat as quickly. Because of these properties, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends plastic surfaces over bare metal.
Regardless of lower heat transfer properties, plastic play equipment can still become hot enough in extreme temperatures and direct sunlight to cause burns. As is the case with all playground equipment, parents and supervisors must monitor the children in their care, make certain that the equipment is appropriate for their age, and always check playground surfaces for excessive heat before allowing children to play. For more information, contact IPEMA headquarters at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 1‐717‐238‐1744.
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. If the installation instructions differ from ours please contact us at 800-227-7529.
Insert glider seat into glider arms and attach with a hex bolt and fender washer on each side of seat. Attach lock nut. Secure. Then do the same on the other side of seat. We suggest using the, GSA, Glider Support Assembly if your swing set has a single beam across the top. If you are not using a glider support and you have two cross beams perpendicular to your swing set, you can attach the four ropes and chain pieces to four swing hangers, at least 12” apart, with either S-hooks, Shackles or spring clips. Connect the chain to swing hanger with either an S-hook or a Shackle. Close according to Figure A1.19 for Fastening Devices. Make sure that fasteners are strong enough to support weight and use. We suggest at least 5/16” diameter fasteners.
Maintenance: At beginning and end of each play season and once a month during play season, check that rope is not fraying and that plastic is not cut or cracking, especially around the rope holes, where seat connects to glider arms and feet rests. Also make sure that fasteners are closed properly. Check for vandalism. Replace parts as necessary.
Any damage from vandalism, abuse or misuse VOIDS all warranties.
