This kit makes me feel a lot better about giving my kids a tree swing. When I was little, we just threw a rope or chain over a branch, tied it to a tire, and climbed on… but that did lead to injuries and broken branches.
These straps and carabiners hold more that enough weight for me to feel secure about my children playing on their swing, and the whole thing was really easy to set up. I took the wheels and trucks off of an old skateboard, and drilled holes in the ends to put the carabiners through so I didn’t have to use chains. (I also reinforced the middle of the skateboard with some extra wood, in case they bounced on it.)
They now have a really cool stand-up swing, and when they get older we can move it to a taller branch and add chains for length if we need to. If you have kids, I definitely recommend this tree swing hanging kit! I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest review. The opinions expressed are 100% my own.
