Our swing chains have a smooth zinc finish. The links are 1 ½ “ long and the opening is ½” wide. The 5/16” steel chain has very short links to help prevent small children from putting their fingers in the links and injuring themselves if they fall off the swing. This product should last 2 years in harsh conditions and up to 5 years in optimal conditions. Some conditions may require replacement sooner. Tensile strength 5000 lbs. Sold per foot.
Installation: Chain should always be attached using the last link in length of chain. Assembly will depend upon use. Close according to Fig A1.19 for Fastening Devices.
Maintenance: At beginning and end of each play season and once a month during play season, check for rusty or worn chain. Carefully check hole around fastener to look for wear. Check for vandalism.
