SwingSesh equipment is designed to be easily installed using simple tools and takes two or three adults in 3-7 hours, depending on the model. View the timelapse installation video below or download the Installation Manual. Model-specific installation manuals are linked at the bottom of this page and can be found on each model's product page.

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!

You'll also want to put some thought into the final surfacing under your playset. Grass, mulch, rubber tiles, and artificial turf are all popular options. Check out this article for more details and pros/cons on playground surfacing options. Depending on your chosen surfacing, you might need some sitework in advance of installation. Reach out to us if you have any questions!

Step 2: Order your Set 

Once you've measured your yard and decided on the perfect set, go ahead and place your order online. 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 dates with you. 

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 packageThe 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 4: Installation - Choose Your Own Adventure...

Option 1: DIY Installation

You're pretty handy, have some basic tools, and a helpful father-in-law or trusty neighbor on speed dial. You can do this!

We have one of the easiest installs on the market so you can quickly get to playing!  You'll need a level, step ladder 1/2" wrenches, and a 1/2" ratchet or impact drive for our anchors. Upgraded posts require 1 1/2" wrenches.

With two or three people that can easily lift 75 pounds the SlimSesh can be setup in 3-4 hours and a SuperSesh will take about 6-7 hours.

Pick the layout you want before uncrating and lay out the components accordingly.

If dads are involved, make sure someone is reading the directions! (Mom, see the links below for all the installation manuals!)

If you're adding a playground surfacing other than grass, the final step will be to add the playground surfacing of your choice!

Option 2: Professional Installation

Don't have the time or patience to do it yourself? We get that. And we've got you covered.

Opt for our Installation Services, and we'll reach out shortly after you purchase to start coordinating installation. Once your set has been delivered, we'll 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; our installation services don't include leveling, site work, or installation of playground surfacing.
