Swing maintenance is a regular occurence which can be hindered by the necessity of ordering parts. Unlike other pieces of equipment, swings require more upkeep than a stationary piece of equipment. Additionally, since it is a solo activity, there needs to be more swings available for children to play on. It isn't unusual to see a swingset with 4 bays, which seats 8 individual swings. As each swing requires two chains and each chain could be up to 10-feet in length, that is already 80 feet of swing chain. Needs change for different areas over time and it may be in the best interest of the community to use bucket seats. Those use a different chain length. With a drum available at all times, it can be quick fix to get the change that you need done. Our swing chain brings a bit extra to the table as it is zinc-coated to handle the elements.
