Our Chain Hanging hardware is similar to the Swing hanging hardware at Playgrounds. The pivoting steel moves with the swinging motion. We use 1/4 inch thick steel plate construction.
We ship springs with each swing set. The springs allow the seat to give just a bit and is a favorite of many customers. The springs are easily added and removed depending on whether you like the softness it adds to the ride.

|All Stainless Steel Hanging Hardware to attach to tree (eyebolts, ulinks, chain, springs & pivoting steel hangers) plus chain loop with protective plastic hosing for tree branch installation. When you make a order please write in height and diameter of tree branch in comment section|
We ship 1/4" thick stainless steel chain assuming your beam or tree branch is 10 ft off the ground. If you need more chain because your beam or branch is more than 10 ft off the ground, please make a note in the comment section at checkout. There is an additional charge for extra chain. If your beam or branch is less than 10 ft off the ground, please let us know the distance so we do not send extra chain unnecessarily. Thank you.
GETTING THE SWING AS COMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE
All our garden swing sets ship with a bit of extra stainless steel chain. When you assemble and set up your set the first time, take a couple minutes to play around with the height and reclining angles by moving a couple chain links at a time. This way you can set the swing exactly at your most comfortable setting and then forget about it for the next 20 years...

HARDWARE FOR SWINGS
You may add hardware to your order for hanging your swing from a beam or a tree.
You can attach our swing to a tree, but please do so VERY CAREFULLY. Make sure your branch can support the weight and the strenuous activity. If in doubt, do not hang the swing.
You will receive enough chain so that the swing can hang from a height of up to ten feet. If you need more chain than that, just let us know in the "Special Instructions & Custom Requests" during checkout and we will get back to you.
Tree swing kits include two additional four-foot loops of stainless steel chain for installation on branches up to 15" in diameter. These loops of chain are enclosed in plastic tubing to protect the tree limb.
All our furniture ships finely sanded to 220 grit for a smooth to the touch finish.
The most popular finish is our Transparent Premium Sealant. This sealant leaves your furniture looking natural and helps keep the beautiful wood surface colors from fading for several years. We use Sikkens brand finishes because they are the best finishes on the market. For more information about our finishes and how to keep your furniture looking great year after year, please go to: https://www.foreverredwood.com/redwood-furniture/care-finish/
Unfinished (fine sanding only):
If you are applying your own stain or want the surface color to fade to a "weathered look" in a few months. We do not recommend you leave your furniture unfinished outdoors for any extended period regardless of wood quality. Outdoor weather changes constantly and it is best to at least seal the wood to protect it from consistently absorbing and losing moisture.
Transparent Premium Sealant - Recommended for Outdoors:
Below are the 5 grades of wood we offer with the Transparent Premium Sealant applied. The color tones shown are close representations of the color your furniture will look like. There is no extra charge for the Transparent Premium Sealant:

Douglas-Fir when stained dark creates a "tiger stripe" effect as shown in this photo. It is beautiful and most customers love it. If you are looking for a dark consistent stain and do not want to see a “tiger stripe effect”, please go with any of the Redwood grades for a more consistent stain finish.

Care: Your Forever Redwood Furniture will last for decades in year-round weather without maintenance.
Depending on the wood grade you choose, even with harsh year-round outdoor conditions, you can expect your furniture to last from ten to forty years without maintenance of any kind.
Being outside year round is rough on any woods finish. The surface absorbs UV rays, pollution, constant variations in moisture and temperature and it also oxidizes. This is why most wood just doesnt hold up and the surface color slowly changes towards a silver patina over the years. But, with Forever Redwood, you dont have to worry. The silver patina is surface deep only (less than 1/64") and is not indicative of decay. Your set will last decades and is not compromised in any way by the surface color change. For example, we keep our display items as is without refinishing to show off this natural aging (we like the patina!).
Although Forever Redwood is maintenance-free, we recommended you take a few minutes as needed to clean by either hosing down and/or brushing/dusting away accumulated debris (no soap or chemicals needed). If youd like to keep your set looking its best for decades, please go to: Care and Finish
