**Installation, Safe Use and Maintenance Instructions**
Installation: The minimum of clearance between the bottom of the tire and the protective surface should not be less than 12”. The minimum clearance between the seating surface of a tire swing and the legs of the frame should be 30” when the tire is in a position closest to the legs. The proper use zones needed for a public tire swing set should extend in any direction from a point directly beneath the pivot point for a minimum distance of six feet plus the length of the suspended unit. The use zone should never overlap the use zone of any other equipment. For residential sets see spacing dimensions on Page 4 of the Outdoor Home Playground Safety Handbook. Only one tire swing is allowed per bay. No other type of swing is allowed in bay. Install swing set where a child can easily be supervised. 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.
Attach three H shackles to built in eye bolts, and attach three S-hooks or H shackles to tire chain. For H shackles make sure the wider side is attached to tire and the smaller end is attached to the last link of chain length. If coated chain, you may have to force S-hook or shackle through the chain. Close S-hooks so that the side of a dime cannot enter the opening. Make sure that both H shackles tamper proof bolts are closed properly. Make sure that fasteners are strong enough. We suggest at least 5/16” diameter fasteners. Attach other two chains in the same manner. Close according to Fig A1.19 for Fastening Devices. WARNING: Once the S-hooks have been opened they will have to be replaced to avoid injuries from coming open and/or breaking. A tire swing shall not occupy a swing bay with any other swinging element.
Safe Use: This is for children 2 - 12 years old only. Adults should supervise children at all times. Do not allow children to stand on or 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 for sharp edges and/or cracks especially around eye bolts. Check for vandalism. Check for rusty or worn chain. See Tire Swivel for Maintenance on tire swivel. Replace parts if necessary. Check to make sure S-hooks and/or H-shackles are closed properly. Maintain detailed inspection and maintenance records for public-use playground equipment.
