XL Round Rope Tree Swing w/Free Hanging Kit
We moved into our house in December and ever since I have been trying to put some personal touches on the home. We have started painting inside and hung pictures Our yard was extremely overgrown and we eventually tamed that. After we tamed the yard, we needed something in it for our kids.
My first idea was to have a really cool playground but... we have a septic tank so we cant have anything big and permanent.
I then found this amazing product online. Its a swing but not like any other swing I have seen. This one reminds me of a spiders web. It is extremely cool!
This swing came folded into quarters and I had to use brute strength to make the 4 separated sections into a circle. Each section was secured with an "eye" with the rope attached to it. I actually had to get my husbands help with the last piece. The next thing we had to do was prep our neglected tree by cutting off dead branches before wrapping the provided orange strap. Once wrapped all we had to do was thread the provided clasp through the strap and then hook it onto each of the 4 metal rings.
The most weight I have put on the swing so far was me and my son at the same time. I weigh about 145lbs give or take and hes MAYBE 30lbs.
The swing itself is a blast! I have not had time to really swing on it yet, but my nanny has taken my kids out to play with it a few times already. Even though I have only personally been on it for a few moments here and there. There is one thing i wish could be different. I wish that it came with an attachment or extra so you can spin it like a tire swing. If you try to spin it with how its currently attached, the ropes twist up and you can only spin so far.
You can purchase this great all included swing here.
