This will replace only the broken head of our S-hook pliers. Use to cut chain and to open and close S-hooks.
**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.
Installation: Spread pliers' legs apart and put chain at the back of the large set of jaws. Put leg with flat end on the ground. Place your foot on the flat end for leverage and press plier's legs together until the chain is cut. Pliers cut chain that is 5/16" in diameter.
To close S-hooks: Put the S-hook in the front part of the large jaws and close the pliers' legs and the S-hook will close.
To open S-hooks: Use the little jaws at the other end of the pliers' head. Put the top or outer jaw inside of the closed S-hook. Close the pliers' legs and the S-hook should open.
Make sure any S-hooks are closed to within .04 to meet ASTM safety standards. To do this you will need to use our S-hook pliers or a regular pair of channel lock pliers. WARNING: Once the S-hooks have been opened they will have to be replaced to avoid injuries from coming open and/or breaking. Make sure that if you are using shackles they are also tightened.
Safe Use: This is for ADULTS only. 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.
Any damage from vandalism, abuse or misuse VOIDS all warranties.
