Is hardware included in accessories?
Hardware is included with some accessories. Check the Features tab on the accessory product page.
Does Eastern Jungle Gym offer a warranty program?
Yes. See our Warranty page for details.
Are surface cracks in the wood normal? What about checking?
Yes! Surface cracks and checking are natural characteristics of any outdoor wood product. They do not affect the structural integrity of the swing set.
My property is not level. Can I still install an Eastern Jungle Gym playset?
For slightly unlevel properties, we recommend our Straight-Base swing sets, which use a unique leveling system. For our Angled-Base and Multi-Deck swing sets, your property should be relatively level.
Does my Eastern Jungle Gym swing set need maintenance?
Yes. All bolts should be tightened and all accessories inspected periodically. Swing hangers should be lubricated occasionally to prevent squeaking. Wood should be lightly sanded if needed and restained or resealed annually. Tire swivels should also be greased annually or as needed.

Installation and Set-Up

Create a safe site free of obstacles and debris. Do not install any surfacing, such as rubber mulch, until after the swing set is installed.

It depends on the model, but in general, an average model takes 6-8hrs, we recommend setting aside a weekend. You will need two adults to set up the swing set.
