    Purchased 2 sets of these monkey bars to build a basic monkey bar setup for my daughters outdoor playground. Upon arriving, I was very happy to see (and feel) the quality in this product. After setting all posts 2ft deep in concrete, and some dry time, I was ready to mount the bars. I measured the manufacturers recommended 1ft spacing and started going to town installing them. Using beveled 10ft & 8ft 4×4’s (instead of the recommended 2×4 setup), the frame is much more solid and resists swaying when compared to a 2×4 setup. Also consider that 2×4’s (even treated ones), warp much faster and more extreme than 4×4’s, which significantly adds to the longevity and safety of the play set. I placed 7 bars across the top, 3 as an access ladder into the play set on one end, and 2 bars on the other end of the setup (6 bars x 2 pkgs). This allows children of all ages to have easy access to the monkey bars. They mounted easily with the included lag screws, and have had no problem holding adult weight. Very sturdy, very durable, good quality. Furthermore, they don’t get hot even after baking in the sun all day, which was a big concern of mine. Overall, great product.

    I was soooo excited to find this set. We were just going to use PVC for our monkey bars (as everything out there is so pricey) until I found this! We got two sets and made 7 into monkey bars, 4 into the ladder going up to them, and had one left over that became our trapeze. I’m a little worried about them getting burning hot next Summer, but, hey, what can you do but hope for enough shade. Other than that, they are AWESOME. Thank you, Swing-N-Slide and Amazon for the exact right thing for us!! (and in our price range) And thank you hubby for being so handy and having such great “DIY skills.”

    easy to install. Instructions come with suggested distances to space the bars. This is a great addition to any play structure.
