SwingSesh equipment is designed to be easily installed using simple tools and takes two or three adults in 3-6 hours, depending on the model. View the timelapse installation video below or download the Installation Manual. (Model-specific installation manuals can be found on each model's product page in the 'Product Features' section.)
Step 1: Measure your Yard
The first step is to measure the space you want to dedicate to the play equipment. This will help you decide which model will fit your space best. The overall footprint and dimension for each model are shown on each product page. And remember, there are different configurations for each model that change the dimensions slightly and might make it a better fit for your site. Safety best practices recommend having a 6-ft wide clear area around the perimeter of the set.
As you're analyzing your site, don't forget to check the slope. You can work with a slope of about 10 inches over 20 feet. If your site is steeper than that, we recommend leveling it before installation. The more level the site, the easier installation will be!
Step 2: Order your Set
Once you've measured your yard and decided on the perfect set, go ahead and place your order online. Although we have one of the easiest DIY installations, but if you'd like us to coordinate installation, add Installation Services to your cart. We'll reach out to you to get some more information and we'll ask you to send us pictures of the site. We'll contact local providers and coordinate installation.
Step 3: Accept the Delivery
Your set will arrive via LTL (less than truckload) freight and typically takes about 1 to 2 weeks after shipment confirmation but may take longer based on current conditions in the shipping market. Fitness playsets arrive packed in a large crate measuring 95"L x 50"W x 40"H and weighing 400-1500lbs (varies based on your chosen options). If your order includes a slide, the slide will be a separate package - The crate will arrive in a large truck with a liftgate and the driver will unload the crate, typically at the end of the driveway. Inspect the shipment upon delivery and note any visible damage on the paperwork provided by the delivery driver.
Step 4a: DIY Installation
We have one of the easiest installs on the market so you can quickly get to playing! All you need is a level, 1/2" wrenches, and a 1/2" ratchet for our anchors. Upgraded posts require 1 1/2" wrenches.
With two or three people that can easily lift 75 pounds the Slim Sesh can be setup in 2-3 hours and a SuperSesh will take 5-6 hours.
Pick the layout you want before uncrating and layout the components accordingly.

Step 4b: Professional Installation
Once your set has been delivered, you can finalize the date and time for installation with a chosen local provider. Before the starting installation, you’ll want the site to be level within about 10 inches over 20 feet.
You will also want to consider some type of playground safety surfacing such as mulch or rubber tiles.
