Product Description

This product is intended for residential purposes only.


Our sturdy glider support is constructed from heavy-duty steel and powder-coated in a sleek green finish. This support is designed to connect to a wooden structure, specifically a 4 x 4 wood beam, and provides a four-point hook-up for the glider. It is versatile enough to be used with pipe structures as well. Our A2850 swing hangers are a perfect complement to this assembly. The three holes on the support are 14mm in size, which is a little bigger than 1/2″ but smaller than a 9/16″ hole. The two holes together are 7 7/8″ center to center on the 11 7/8″ side and 1″ down from where the pole would set on the pipe. The one hole’s center is positioned at 6″ on the welded part to the two perpendicular poles and 1 3/8″ from the outer edge. This product is expected to last up to 5 years in optimal conditions, but harsh conditions may require earlier replacement. Please note that adult supervision is required when children are playing on this play equipment.

**Installation, Safe Use and Maintenance Instructions**

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.

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.

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 800-433-2573. 

If your swing set has a single beam across the top, you may need to install a glider support. This will produce a four point mounting system. The flat piece with one hole goes on top of the beam with the side with two holes bolted flush against the beam. You will need to drill holes into the beam in order to install the bolts. The bolts should be two ½” x 3” lag bolts and the top bolt should be ½” and then whatever length your beam is. This bolt needs to go through the beam from the top of the beam and have a nylock nut and washer attached to it on the bottom of the beam. Make sure nut is tight and not more than two threads of bolt are protruding beyond nut. If you are installing this on a pipe, then you would need to drill a hole through the pipe and put a bolt through the pipe and the glider support. Do the same at the top of the glider support and at the two holes on the side. If the bolt supplied is too long, you will need to purchase a shorter bolt so that no more than two threads are showing beyond the nut. You will need to purchase ½” bolts, sufficiently long enough to go through pipe and a have a nylock nut attached with no more than two threads showing beyond the nut for a pipe installation. Four 2 ½” hangers will go through the four end holes. The nylock nuts should be attached at the top of the assembly with the swing hangers at the bottom of the assembly. Make sure nut is tight and not more than two threads of bolt are protruding beyond nut. Fasteners should be attached to the swing hangers and then attached to the glider. Make sure all hardware is tightened tight and closed according to Figure A1.19 for Fastening Devices.

Safe Use: This is for children 5 – 12 years old only. Adults should supervise children at all times. Do not allow children to use unsafely. Do not allow it to be used if damaged.

Maintenance: At beginning and end of each play season and once a month during play season, check for rust, sharp edges and/or cracks. Check for vandalism, check for worn or rusty chain. Check to make sure spring clips, S-hooks and/or Shackles and swing hangers are closed properly, and not worn out. Replace parts if necessary.

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