**Installation, Safe Use and Maintenance Instructions**
IMPORTANT: Please read for important information. In this material, we have tried to provide some requirements stated in the CPSC Handbooks, ASTM F2373-11, F1487-11, and F1148-09. However, we in no way intend for this to be a complete list of requirements. Also, these publications are updated frequently with changes therefore, you should read these publications yourself to determine if any part or installation could prove a danger to a child.
To help keep children safe from harm, review installation and maintenance instructions before installing equipment. These are located in the description of every product on our website. www.jensenswing.com Download and print these instructions and keep in a safe place. Our website also has a “Product Testing Information” page. All products are tested for lead, phthalates and tensile strength. You can also call us at 1-800-227-7529 for more information or see http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/pubs/325.pdf.
Due to the thermodynamics and lower heat transfer properties of plastics insulates better and doesn’t transfer the heat as quickly. Because of these properties, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends plastic surfaces over bare metal.
Regardless of lower heat transfer properties, plastic play equipment can still become hot enough ‐‐ in extreme temperatures and direct sunlight ‐‐ to cause burns. As is the case with all playground equipment, parents and supervisors must monitor the children in their care, make certain that the equipment is appropriate for their age, and always check playground surfaces for excessive heat before allowing children to play. For more information, contact IPEMA headquarters at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 1‐717‐238‐1744.
Installation: Our parts are sold as either replacement parts or components of a set unless you are buying our Metal Frame Set, therefore these parts need to be installed according to the sets installation instructions. If the installation instructions differ from ours please contact us at 800-227-7529.
Take the appropriate length of ½” rope. See Figure A1.29 for the spacing requirement. Remember disk cannot be used in the same bay with other swinging elements. Thread one end of rope through the hole in the disk. Tie a secure Stopper Knot at the bottom of the rope. Make sure Stopper Knot is large enough not to slip back out through the hole. Attach rope to swing hanger by using a fastener and tying an Eye Splice Knot in one end of the rope. Attach Eye Splice Knot to a fastener, then attach fastener to swing hanger. Make sure all knots are secure. Make sure that fasteners are closed according to Figure A1.19 for Fastening Devices and strong enough to support weight and use. We suggest at least 5/16” diameter fasteners. Directions for tying knots can be found on YouTube.
Safe Use: This is for children 5 – 12 years old only. Adults should supervise children at all times. Do not allow children to use unsafely. Do not allow it to be used if damaged or wet.
Maintenance: At beginning and end of each play season and once a month during play season, check that knots are secure, that rope is not fraying and that plastic is not cut or cracking, especially around the middle hole in the disk. Also, make sure fasteners are closed properly. Check for vandalism. Replace parts as necessary.
