Pair Premium Brackets for Wooden Swing Set A-Frame Structure
Fall/winter coupon: you may want to think about ordering and receiving now the brackets you will need in the coming spring/summer, for the reason that there can be quite a delay in receiving your brackets when you order them in the spring/summer. Delays averaged 8 weeks last spring and summer. As it also benefits me to spread out the orders more, i offer a $10 fall/winter coupon that you can take advantage of now by using the checkout promo code “fallwinter”. Please note: this listing is for a pair of the steel brackets, and is not for any other part of the swing set pictured. I have designed and installed swing sets for the last 7 years, and over that time i have tried many swing set brackets, all of which performed poorly for my expectations of a stable wooden swing set. These swing set brackets here will give you a much more solid and stable swing set, and your project will come out great, every time, with less hassle. They cost more than some brackets because they have more steel in them, and are not made overseas. But their design will contribute greatly to the successful outcome of your swing set, and to your swing set’s life expectancy. If you would like to make the really fun swing set pictured, it is quite easy to make. Just search online for room2zoom materials, where you will find instructions, lists of all the parts you need, along with an instructional video that takes you through the simple steps. This listing is for the pair of steel brackets that attach the four legs to the swing beam, for building a wooden swing set frame from a 4×6 beam and 4 – 4×4 legs. Two brackets are included in this listing, one for each end of the a-frame structure. With these two brackets you can build a free-standing swing set frame with your own 4×4 legs and 4×6 beam. These brackets do not include the bolts/screws hardware for attaching them. The brackets are the most important component in making a swing set. Why go with these brackets. Nearly all the other brackets you’ll find will lift up at the legs when the kids are swinging just moderately high. This is because the angle between the legs is narrow–typically only 45 degrees. Yes, you can dig holes and cement the set into the ground, but that’s quite a bit of extra work, not to mention you can then never move the set to a different spot in the yard if you wished. These brackets were designed with a 60 degree angle so that the set will not want to lift up when the kids are swinging. The last photo above compares the angle of our brackets with the angle of the typical brackets out there in the marketplace. These brackets bolt to the 4×6 swing beam and 4×4 legs much snugger than other brackets do, and the bracket steel is much thicker than on other brackets, all for a more solid and stable structure. These brackets are easier to install than other brackets. Other brackets might require you to plane the 4×6 beam to be able to fit it into the bracket. These brackets are high quality, powder coated, good looking brackets. These brackets do not include the hardware for attaching them. Please search online for room2zoom installation videos which show more of the brackets, which hardware you should choose, and how to install them. These brackets fit typical 4×6 lumber which actually measures 5 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches, and 4×4 lumber which actually measures 3 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. Transit time to the southern u.
