Positioning Your Playcenter ·The pla ycenter is designed to be installed on a level surface by an adult with an adult helper. Place in a # at area of your yard to minimize ground preparation. ·Choose a level location for the equipment. This can reduce the likelihood of the play set tipping over and loose-! ll surfacing material washing away during heavy rains. ·Place the equipment not less than 6 ft (1.8 m) from any structure or obstruction such as a fence, garage, house, overhanging branches, laundry lines, or electrical wires. ·Provide enough room so that the children can use the equipment safely. For example, for structures with multiple play activities, a slide should not exit in front of a swing. ·It is a good idea to place your playcenter in an area that is convenient for adults to watch children at play. ·Create a site free of obstacles that could cause injuries ±such as lo w over hanging tree branches, overhead wires, tree stumps and/or roots, large rocks, bricks and concrete. Additional suggestions in the Suggested Playground Surfacing Section. ·Do not build your playset on top of surfacing material. ·Locate bare metal platforms and slides out of direct sun light to reduce the likelihood of serious burns. A slide that faces north will receive the least direct sunlight. ·Separate active and quiet activities from each other. For example, locate sandboxes away from swings or use a guardrail or barrier to separate the sandbox from the movement of the swings. Suggested Playground Surfacing ·Do not install home pla yground equipment over concrete, asphalt, packed earth, grass, carpet, or any other hard surface. A fall onto a hard surface can result in serious injury to the equipment user. ·Do not install loose ! ll surfacing over hard surfaces such as concrete or asphalt. ·Shredded bark mulch, wood chips, ! ne sand and ! ne gravel, are added as shock absorbing materials after assembly. If used properly these materials can absorb some of the impact of a child’s fall. ·All surface material should extend a minimum of 6ft (1.8m) feet in all directions around the play area. ·Do not apply playground surfacing until after the unit is completely constructed. Playset should not be built on top of surfacing. ·Use containment, such as digging out around the perimeter and/or lining the perimeter with landscape edging. ·Installations of rubber tiles or poured-in-place surfaces (other than loose-! ll materials) generally require a professional and are not ªdo-it-yourselfº projects. ·Shall use Playground Surfacing Materials (other than loose-! ll material) which comply with the safety standard ASTM F1292 Standard Speci! cation of Impact Attenuation of Surfacing Materials within the Use Zone of Playground Equipment.

OWNERS SHALL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE LEGIBILITY OF THE WARNING LABELS At the beginning of each play season ·Tight en all hardware. ·Lubricate all metallic moving parts per manufacturer’s instructions. ·Check all protective coverings on bolts, pipes, edges, and corners. Replace if they are loose, cracked, or missing. ·Check all moving parts including swing seats, ropes, cables, and chains for wear, rust, or other deterioration. Replace as needed. ·Check metal parts for rust. If found, sand and repaint using a non lead-based paint meeting the requirements of 16 CFR 1303. ·Check all wood members for deterioration and splinters. Sand down splinters and replace deteriorating wood members. ·Reinstall any plastic parts, such as swing seats or any other items that were removed for the cold season. ·Rake and check depth of loose ! ll protective surfacing materials to prevent compaction and to maintain appropriate depth. Replace as necessary. Twice a month during play season ·Tighten all hardware. ·Check all protective coverings on bolts, pipes, edges, & corners. Replace if they are loose, cracked, or missing. ·Rake and check depth of loose ! ll protective surfacing materials to prevent compaction and to maintain appropriate depth. Replace as necessary. Once a month during play season. ·Lubricate all metallic moving parts per manufacturer’s instructions. ·Check all moving parts including swing seats, ropes, cables, and chains for wear, rust, or other deterioration. Replace as needed. At the end of each season or when the temperature drops below 32$ F ·Remove plastic swing seats and other items as speci! ed by the manufacturer and take indoors or do not use. ·Rake and check depth of loose ! ll protective surfacing materials to prevent compaction and to maintain appropriate depth. Replace as necessary. Additional Maintenance ·Ch eck the swing beam and hardware every two weeks due to wood expansion and contraction. It is particularly important that this procedure be followed at the beginning of each season. ·Inspect wood parts monthly. The grain of the wood sometimes will lift in the dry season causing splinters to appear. Light sand may be necessary to maintain a safe playing environment. Treat your playset with stain regularly, to help prevent severe checking/ splitting and other weather damage. ·A waterborne transparent stain has been applied to your playset. This is done for color only. Once or twice a year, depending on your climate conditions, you must apply some type of protection (sealant) to the wood of your unit. Prior to the application of sealant, lightly sand any ªroughº spots on your playset. Please note this is a requirement of your warranty. ·Assembling and maintaining the playset on a level location is very important. As your children play, your playset will slowly dig its way into the soil, and it is very important that it settles evenly. Make sure the playset is level and true one each year or at the beginning of each play season. Disposal Instructions When the Playcenter use is no longer desired, it should be disassembled and disposed of in such a way that no unreasonable hazards will exist at the time the unit is discarded.
