3 1/2" Extra HD 3 Leg Swing Set Middle Fitting

A middle frame fitting is needed to make separate bays for swing sets. These fittings require schedule 40 3” pipe for both the top beam and legs. Schedule 40 3” pipe is 3” inside diameter and 3 1/2” outside diameter. To determine amount of bays needed for swing set consult Figure 23, Table 7 for commercial swing sets. Determine length of pipe needed for each top beam per bay. For residential sets see spacing dimensions See Page 4 of the Outdoor Home Playground Safety Handbook,http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/pubs/324.pdf. Swings intended for the same age groups should be suspended from structures that are separate from those for other swings for different age groups, or at least suspended from a separate bay of the same structure. For instance, a full bucket swing should be in the same bay with another full bucket swing, not a full bucket and a strap seat in the same bay. To minimize the likelihood of children being struck by a moving swing, it is recommended that no more than two swings be hung in each bay of the supporting structure. Install swing set where a child can easily be supervised and not in direct sun. Do not install playground equipment over concrete, asphalt, or any other hard surface. A fall onto a hard surface can result in serious injury to the equipment user. Grass and dirt are not considered protective surfacing because wear and environmental factors can reduce their shock absorbing effectiveness. Carpeting and thin mats are generally not adequate protective surfacing. Install your play equipment on level ground with adequate surfacing and anchoring. Use proper hardware, and tighten all connections.

To determine the length of pipe needed for the legs figure the SIN of 45 degrees= .96 = Height. Divide by length of pipe. For example a ten foot pipe would be 8 ft 10″ above the ground.

Lay out all the pipes and end frame fittings on the ground. Arrange them as they will eventually be connected as the finished assembly, approximately, two to three feet from where the set will set into the ground. Slide the one end frame fittings on an end of the top bean pipe. Tighten the two included set screws on the top of the end frame fitting. If you are using any swing hangers, attach them at this time.
