The clearance distance should be 400cm around the swing.

Do not use the equipment until properly installed.

This swing is not to be used in any other manner other than its intended use.

Adult supervision is required.

Adults should verify that the hanging ropes are secured and cannot be looped back on the swing.

It is important for adults to instruct children to:

–        Dress appropriately while using the swing (avoid ponchos, scarves, and other loose-fitting clothing that is potentially hazardous).

–        Sit on the center of the swing with full weight on the seat if swinging alone.

It is important for adults to instruct children NOT to:

–        Walk close to, in front of, behind, or between moving items.

–        Twist ropes or loop them over the top support bar since such action may reduce the rope’s strength.

–        Get off the sign while it is in motion.

–        Climb on the swing when it is wet.

–        If the swing is hung from the swing set frame, then lubricate all metallic moving parts that are attached by a metal connection.

–        If the swing is hung from a tree branch, then rake and check the depth of loose-fill protective surfacing materials(such as mulch or sand) to prevent compaction and to maintain appropriate depth(Min amount is 25cm), and replace as needed.
