Flinders Swing Climb Slide Playset review
Very large wooden playground including Fort, Rock Wall, Slide and 2 swings. Instructions are the most ridiculous I have ever read, missing number, incorrect labelled parts, dodgy diagrams, split wood (had to glue) Missing pre-drilled holes (I had to do myself) I'm clever at building so I got it together but took a lot of ingenuity and tweaking. Two frames pieces were about 500mm longer than the diagrams and video on how to build on the Bunnings website. Said to paint or stain it because it was bare pine so I spent $90 on paint an...
I wish I had found these reviews before we purchased this product. As others have stated it is wobbly despite all of the bolts being tightened as far as they would go. Instructions are ridiculous - just diagrams and no wording and the diagrams are so tiny that we needed to use a magnifying glass to read what part number we were supposed to be using. As for the box saying it would take two people to assemble it in 1.5hrs that's a joke. It took my partner and myself two full days! Kids are happy with it but we are nervous about them playing on it...due to it being wobbly especially the top bar which is really heavy should it happen to fall (I'm hoping the bolts are going to hold it up there) If you were to ask me if you should buy this product i would tell you to spend a bit more and get something stronger and sturdier.
Purchased in May 2019 for A$169.00.
DEFECTIVE and DANGEROUS welding and grinding - unsafe for use.
Product:- Vuly Swing set ( Large )
By any standard, the welding and grinding is very very poor in quality.
I lacerated, quite badly, my index finger as I was attempting, unsuccessfully to assemble this equipment.
Had this not been found it could have caused severe cuts/lacerations to a child!!
I have not complained about this to Vuly - as my satisfaction with Customer Service would rate somewhere between zero and zip!!
Very poor quality, couldn't even finish assembly due to poorly made parts
At first when unboxing the swing it seemed reasonably good quality, but then it all went down hill once it came to assembly. Firstly the instructions have no words and the pictures are tiny leaving you mostly guessing what to do. Most of the fixings bottom out on each other before they actually tighten what they're supposed to, leaving most connections wobbly. Build quality control is extremely poor as on the swing set I purchased one of the two brackets that fix the legs to the top bar was pressed completely out of shape and couldn't even be attached. Very unhappy especially for the price, I will be returning.
Good playset, if we can figure out how to put it together
This seems like a great playset, affordable and good timber etc. But thw instructions are ridiculously hard to interpret. I.e. only one page for about 10 steps and no written instructions. One of the bolts clean broke off. We are currently watching a youtube video to assist us but even then, some of the bolts/screws don't match what our instructions (are trying) to say. I hope you are handier than us!!!
Bolts don't fit
Got one of the toddler play set for Christmas. When we were trying to put it together the nuts and bolts didn't fit into one of the poles. Then we find out we needed to drill a hole so we could attach the steps to the frame. The whole frame is wobbly even when we tightened the things right up.
I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.
Poor quality soft bolts, loose pieces
This is a terrible quality swing set. The 'hardened' bolts will strip when you try to tighten them, the hex key damages the metal so quickly I cannot even remove them now to return them to Bunnings. The bolts for the top bar only have 2- or 3- revolution 'grab' meaning even a slight loosening would allow them to fall off, and their vertical orientation means if they do loosen they would fall out, potentially allowing the swing top bar to collapse. A terrible, horrible design, complemented by cheap, poor quality materials. It will be going back as soon as I can cut the bolts off with an angle grinder to fit the thing in my car.
So easy to put together
This swing set is great. It took myself and my husband about 2 hours to put together. The box estimated 2 people 1.5 hours. Every piece was easily identified and instructions easy to follow. made from good quality weather and sun proof material and included safety pieces to dig into ground for security and stability. This product was bought from Bunnings for a very reasonable price. Very happy and my kids love it.
