It has a 15" chain and 44" rope. It is 79" overall from the bottom of the stirrups to the top of the chain. The weight limit is 150 lbs.
**Installation, Safe Use and Maintenance Instructions**
IMPORTANT: To keep children safe from harm, follow these precautions and instructions when installing, using, or maintaining this playground equipment. You can see this PDF.
Due to the thermo dynamics and lower heat transfer properties of plastics, plastic slides are preferred over metal slides for play equipment. Although plastic slides may become as hot as metal, they insulate better and don't transfer the heat as quickly. Because of these properties, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends plastic slides and 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. Plastic slides are safe, tried and true, but 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.
Installation: To assemble take bolt out of seat. Line up the holes from the seat and the handles. Insert bolt into the holes and tighten. If your swing set has a single beam across the top, you may need to install a GS glider support. This will produce a four point mounting system. The flat piece with one hole goes on top of the beam and 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 bottom of the beam and have a nut attached to it on the top of the beam.
Four 2 ½ " hangers will go through the four end holes. The nuts should be attached on the top of the assembly with the swing hangers at the bottom of the assembly. The spring clips should be attached to the swing hangers and then attached to the glider.
Safe Use: This is for children 5-12 year olds only. Not for Adults. Adults should supervise children at all times. Do not allow children to stand on or use unsafely. Do not allow it to be used if damaged.
Maintenance: Do the following to reduce the chance of serious injuries. Check monthly for cracks, rust, missing rivets, open S-hooks or evidence of vandalism such as cutting, metal showing through the material or bent seats from children standing on them. Tighten and lubricate all metallic moving parts per manufacturer's instructions. Check all protective coverings on nuts, bolts, pipes, edges, corners and all moving parts including swing hangers, swing seats, ropes, cables, chains and shackles. Replace as needed. Make sure there are no exposed footings, anchoring devices, rocks, roots, holes or any other obstacles in or around playground equipment. In high use areas these inspections should be done more frequently. Clean with mild soap and water when you do the monthly maintenance checks.
