Seems sturdy and well made. The plastic coated chain is a nice feature as well as the ends being uncoated where you will attach chain to swing frame. Has a good weight to it, not too heavy and not to light. Looks like it is going to be able to stand up to years of outside use in all types of weather.
We've had this swing for about a year now. It is the perfect size for our 5- and 8-year old granddaughters, who love the support it gives (with the rigid seat). They make the swing go high, and I have complete confidence in it.
I have been redoing our swing set, upgrading the seats and chains. I only like rigid seats. Perhaps I am old fashioned or used to a flat seat, but the playground flexi-seats just aren't comfortable. I have purchased two other plastic, rigid swing seats both were good but more expensive . This one is by far the least expensive. It is for small kids mostly (<105#). The important thing is that it comes with the "good" type of rubber coated chain, and that is one of the main reasons that I purchased it. The coating isnt a plastic sleve or tube that slides over the chain and gets mildewed, torn and ugly.
Good sturdy swing seats and coated chains, easy installment, and my grandchildren love them! Easy shopping online and fast delivery!
Solid surface and plastic coated chain makes it easy for younger children to learn the basics for 'swinging'.
The kids really seem to enjoy this seat; even the older ones try it out and stay on longer than I thought they would considering it's on a shorter length of swing. Have hopes for many years of use in our family.
