Step 1) Pour concrete and place the “J” bolts so that they will fit in the outer edges of the larger black plate.
Step 2) Begin Spring Assembly
See video for more info on positioning
Make sure that the center of the silver casting is flush with the plate
Screw bolts so that the heads of the bolt will be below the plate and the threads are coming through the top of the spring casting
Tighten spring casting to spring and bottom plate using the provided nuts
Step 3) Begin Top Spring Assembly
See video for more info on positioning
Remove the small black plate that either comes attached to the spring rider or is sent with the hardware that comes with each spring rider
Make sure that the center of the silver casting is flush with the plate, if it is not looking like it will be flush with the plate – double check the video on positioning and the orientation of the spring casting itself
Screw the hex head bolts so that the heads of the bolts are on the flush side of the spring casting and the threads of the bolts are facing upwards
Tighten spring casting to the spring and top plate using the provided nuts
Step 4) Attach Spring Rider
Using the smaller black plate that was just secured to the spring – reattach the spring rider using the 4 smaller hex head bolts so that they go through the casting and tighten into the underside of the spring rider.
Step 5) Attach spring and Plates and Spring Rider to concrete
Taking the whole assembly of the spring rider that we have just assembled – place it onto the J bolts that were secured in Step 1 – and tighten them so that the spring rider is secured.
How to insert silver spring casting into spring:
*NOTE: Allow enough thread on anchor bolts to secure bottom plate to footing.
Maintenance: At beginning and end of each play season and once a month during play season, check for cracks, rust, missing or loose hardware or evidence of vandalism. Make sure there are no tears in rubber boot that children could get their fingers pinched in spring. Tighten and lubricate all metallic moving parts. Replace as needed. Make sure there are no exposed footings, anchoring devices, rocks, roots, holes or any other obstacles in or around spring animals. Maintain detailed inspection and maintenance records for public-use playground equipment.
