Infant Swing Seat
Our Infant Swing Seats have a smaller leg opening and measures 39" in diameter x 11" deep with a 3.5" leg opening. This seat complies with the ASTM F 2373 Guidelines for children 6 to 23 months. This seat has leg hole openings which are only 4.25 in diameter.This Baby Swing Seat is fully enclosed, one piece construction which features smaller leg openings to keep smaller children safe in the seat. Making a one piece insert is much more expensive than tabbing an insert different pieces together because of wasted material used during the cutting of the seat pattern. However, we feel that the increased strength achieved from a one piece construction of the seat warrants the small increase in price over other seats. In addition, it also is constructed with a high back design to offer extra support for smaller children and babies and is made from durable EPDM Rubber (Ethylene-propylene-diene-monomer). EDPM is a synthetic rubber material and not natural rubber. Natural rubber is often made from recycled tires and you are never sure what the actual rubber mixture is resulting is, it can easily wear off on childrens clothes, develop cracks and fading making the seat unsightly. Splits and cracks in the seats allow moisture to permeate the rubber resulting in a quicker deterioration rate.
In sharp contract, our seats are made of EPDM rubber that was specifically developed for our swing seats. This rubber does not rub off on children's clothes, and the seats last much longer than natural rubber swings. Unlike seats made of co-polymer injected molded plastic, seats made of EPDM rubber hold up well in extreme temperatures ranging from very hot to very cold. Our one piece steel insert is not used in most other swing seats either.
The seat should last 2 years in harsh conditions and up to 5 years in optimal conditions. Some conditions may require replacement sooner. Tensile strength is 1200 lbs.
This swing is intended for Babies 6 months to 24 Months Old. Read all instructions before attempting assembly. To determine proper use zones needed for swing set, you can download a pdf from our recommended download section of this site. For residential sets see spacing dimensions on Page 4 of the Outdoor Home Playground Safety Handbook found in the residential section of this site. 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. When installing this swing seat you may need to replace or purchase the following items:
Install swing where child can easily be attended at all times and not in direct sun. The open section of swing seat should face forward. This swing has two rings, one on each side of open section of swing. You may attach our A110 safety chain to these rings or another type of restraint. Make sure restraint system does not pose a strangulation hazard. To attach swing to set, measure each side of swing chain, so the swing hangs evenly. Attach the bottom of each chain to the metal triangle on swing seat with either a shackle or S-hook. The bolt on shackle goes through the chain with part of shackle going through triangular hardware on swing seat. Close according to Figure A1.19 for Fastening Devices. Make sure that fasteners are strong enough to support weight and use. We suggest using a H170 shackle or 3/8 diameter standard S-hooks to connect chain to seat. Try swinging seat without child in it first to make sure everything is working correctly before placing child in seat.
