Holiday Gift Idea for the DIYer: Swing Set Bracket
Multi-Use Swing Set Bracket
For many of us, holiday shopping gets a bit more difficult each year. First, there’s the challenge of selecting an original gift that the person doesn’t already have. You also need to find something that fits your budget. And of course, if you’re like us, the element of surprise is a necessity, too.
When it comes to the DIY-er in your family, we have a suggestion that meets all of the above criteria: a solid steel swing set bracket. Our Easy 1-2-3 A-Frame Brackets are extremely versatile. They have a 45-degree angle between the legs, and 14 pre-drilled holes for easy assembly.
While we use our swing set bracket exclusively for playset purposes, we’ve heard of customers using the product in a variety of ways.
Swing Set Bracket Uses
Here are some of the ways DIY folks around the country have used this piece of hardware: Hammock stands.
– A homemade, A-frame hoist with a solid wood beam. One customer planned to use this for lifting tractor implements, cradling livestock/large game, and supporting motorcycles when performing maintenance.
– An A-frame for a single swing or a bench swing (one of the many products for which we use the bracket).
– Adding a swing to an existing structure, such as a deck or a playhouse.
Planning and Presenting Your Gift
There are a few different ways you can give your loved one a swing set bracket. The first option is to purchase one (or two, depending on the project you think he or she may have in mind), wrap it and present it. Be sure to account for the heavy weight of the item when you go about wrapping and transporting.
Another option is a gift certificate to be used toward the purchase of the bracket. Depending on the amount, this could give the recipient some flexibility to add additional items (hardware, a swing, etc.).
Our last suggestion applies if you are the DIY expert in the family. If this is the case, you could use these brackets to make one of the above-named items as a gift for a loved one.
A Solid Option
No matter which route you take, a quality, steel swing set bracket is a useful gift. It leaves no shortage of possibilities for DIYers! Whether used for a swing set or an unrelated project, a swing set bracket is sure to be a memorable holiday gift.
