**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.

To help keep children safe from harm, review installation and maintenance instructions before installing equipment. These are located in the description of every product on our website. www.americanswing.com   Download and print these instructions and keep in a safe place. Our website also has a “Product Testing Information” page. All products are tested for lead, phthalates and tensile strength. You can also call us at 1-800-433-2573 for more information or see http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/pubs/325.pdf.

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. 

The beam hanger must have pendulum removed by loosening nut and removing bolt holding pendulum in swing hanger. The long part of hanger is placed perpendicular to wood beam. Determine spacing of swing hangers on wood beam by consulting either Figure 23, Table 7 for commercial swings, or for residential sets see spacing dimensions for ASTM 1148 diagram. Mark wood beam with correct spacing, then place hanger on bottom of wood beam and mark hole with pencil. Using a power drill with a ½” bit, drill holes through wood beam.   Insert appropriate length carriage bolt with flat washer on either side of wood beam, so carriage bolt points downwards. The bolt, washers and nut are not included. Pay attention to bolt length. It must be long enough to go through hanger, but not so long as to impede re-attachment of pendulum. After inserting bolt, attach lock nut to carriage bolt and bottom washer. Teeth on top of hanger should sink into wood as nut is tightened. If necessary, hit hanger with rubber mallet, so that teeth are firmly sunk in wood. This will prevent hanger from turning. Check that the bolt is attached with no more than two threads showing beyond the nut. Check to see bolt is straight and nut is tight. Make sure swing hanger is straight. Replace pendulum into hanger, making sure nut is tight with no more than two threads protruding past nut, and that the pendulum can swing freely. Unscrew bolt, put last link of chain on bolt and then screw bolt back in using the A5750 wrench. Check that the bolt is attached with no more than 2 threads showing beyond nut.

Safe Use: This is for children 0 - 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 sharp edges and/or cracks in hanger, paying particular attention to surface around bolt hole. Check for cracks in wood around bolt hole. Check to see if oil lite bearing in swing hanger pendulum is worn or cracking. When worn or cracked, replace pendulum. Check for vandalism. Replace parts if necessary. Check to make sure both lock nuts are tight. Maintain detailed inspection and maintenance records for public-use playground equipment.

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

  1. Excellent but......

    Posted by Jerry of Rockford, IL on 10th Jul 2014

    For the most part, this is the best designed product I could find - plenty strong and connects to the chain without another connector - like a quick-link.
    But a serious problem is bushings of 0.515 ID and bolt diameters of 0.425 which adds greatly to wear. So I'm replacing them with 1/2" diameter bolts and not happy about needing to do that.

  2. Unusual use

    Posted by Chris on 2nd May 2014

    I am using these in a strange way. They are attached to large Redwood trees and have a 1/4 cable stung between them. A swing of sorts is then hanging down from that. I mainly went with these as obviously it is not designed for this, but I am holding way less than the 5000lb rating.

    The product seems solid. My only two nitpicks. It is slightly too small for an appropriate 1/2 washer, so I had to go without. While it has the special allen scew on the shackle, just above it is a normal nut and bolt. If someone wanted to do damage or steal the swing they could just loosen that nut and make off with it. In my case it is 25 feet up in a tree, so good luck to them.

    Shipping was SUPER quick. Ordered on the weekend, shipped on Monday, got it Tuesday morning (in CA).

  3. Top notch

    Posted by Len on 13th Jan 2014

    Quality, commercial grade product. Welded these to heavy duty pipe. The shackle end simplifies chain attachment. Would buy again. Seems massively sturdy.

    Very happy with the company, they've treated me more than fair.

  4. Very high quality

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Nov 2013

    I'm using them for a porch swing and am certain the hangers will be around long after the porch swing.

    Excellent company to work with. Very responsive to e-mail. Wish I could buy everything from them.

  5. super duty hanger

    Posted by Unknown on 12th Oct 2013

    I got 2 hangers for a porch swing that fit 4 peoples. The hanger seemed very sturdy and super duty. the metal thickness is 1/4" galvanized steel. I was looking for something that can carry ~1000 lbs and these hangers seems to be up to the task.
    I got the allen wrench with special hole with it too. The price here is lower than anywhere else

  6. Quality Product

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Aug 2013

    I was looking for a quality, commercial grade swing hanger at a reasonable price. This product fits those requirements. Shipping was quick and efficient.

  7. super heavy duty

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Apr 2013

    These look and work great. Instead of bolting them I welded instead. They should last a long time.

  8. Look Great Commercail Grade

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Apr 2013

    These Hanger look very well built. Can't wait to install them.
