    Before a purchase I need to know a few things to see if it is the right plan for us. The length of this to see if it fits in the space I have. I’d also like to know the height bc I don’t want to build something that won’t give a good thrilling swing for my older kids. Does this design require tie-down or cementing? Seems like that is a good idea for most A frames? If so do you recommend the easiest/best brands for this?

    Thanks
    Mary

      The swing set designed to be 8’7 1/2″ from the ground to the top of the beam. It needs to be low to make the tire swing safer. Yes it is recommended that the post are setting to the ground with concrete for maximum durability.
