Product quality is good assembling was a nightmare.
August 10, 2016
All in all, once built the swing set is nice and it is sturdy. Reason for a two star on this product isn't to do with the quality of the product, but more so the issue I ran into while assembling. For one they stamp the piece numbers of each board on the butt end of the board and half of them were not readable. So it took half a day just sorting out the boards due to having to measure each board to make sure they were the right piece number. Also there were two boxes that had the boards in them and some of the piece numbers were split between the two boxes. For example lets say piece number PF6069, the inventory sheet from box one would show 8 total pieces of that number, but 5 would be in one box and 3 in the other and that number wasn't on the inventory sheet of box two at all. So that put delays in the process. Then with the bags of screws, bolts, nuts, etc, they all had part numbers on the clear baggies, but nowhere in the booklet did it say what that part number stood for. So I had to measure each set of screws and label them to what size they are.
Now on to the instruction booklet. There were at least 30 misprints in the instruction booklet that if I didn't catch that there was something wrong I would have screwed something up or thought there were parts missing. One of the misprints was asking for a piece number of a board that didn't even exist. Only thing that really saved me was organizing the board and labeling them all with post-it notes the day before. Then they had the steps in the wrong order. It went from step 14 to step 17 to step 15 to step 16. Also some of the holes were not predrilled properly.
Speaking of predrilled holes don't expect that all boards are predrilled, you are going to need a tape measure and square to attach some of these boards which isn't too bad, I just wasn't expecting all of that.
Again the finish product seems to be quality, it was just the biggest inconvenient pain in the butt to assemble due to the misprints and lack of organization of the packaging. So some advice organize the wood and the hardware right away get everything labeled properly and expect bad and not descriptive instructions.
