Our non wrap swing hangers have been redesigned with a smoother top to better meet protrusion regulations. 2 3/8" O.D. these non wrap hangers help prevent swing chain from getting caught on top of swing sets and wrapping around the pipe. This is a safety issue that helps keep the stress from the chain and fasteners, and keeps the motion on the swing hanger, where it belongs. It helps the chain and fasteners from being worn prematurely from friction. These hangers can replace regular swing hangers without dismantling a swing set. They are made of galvanized steel and a nylon sleeve. This hanger fits a 2" pipe.
**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: Hangers should be spaced 2 ft from the end of the set and 2 ft a part for each swing. Remove H-shackle by using a wrench with a pin hole to remove the tamper resistant bolt. Open the swing hanger into half. Remove the plastic collar. Match up alignment tabs. Make sure that both halves are aligned. Drill 4 - #8 holes into pipe where you wish the swing hanger to be placed. Screw 1 - #12 self tapping screw into the plastic insert and make sure that the hanger inserts align properly. Then screw in the remaining three screws. Put the steel hanger around the plastic collar and attach the hanger around the plastic sleeve by inserting the H-shackle. Insert the tamper proof bolt using a wrench with a pin hole after putting permanent lock-tite on the bolt threads to prevent it from backing out. Using a grease gun put a sufficient amount of standard grease in the hanger to allow the hanger to swing freely. We have used a McKay Molybdenum Disulfide grease cartridge, but any standard grease cartridge from any auto part store should be sufficient. Use the H175 to open shackle bolt. Slide chain on the bolt and then tighten in the hanger until snug.
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, shackles, pendulums for excessive wear and tighten bolts. 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.
