Welcome to a Lifetime assembly channel.My name is John. Today we’re going to be helping you build your Adventure Clubhouse Swing Set. This video follows instructions, so ifyou’ve already begun and you need help on a certain step feel free to check thedescription below. There’s going to be a time stamp associated with each step. Before we begin the build, let’s take a look at some of the tools were going toneed for the assembly. You’ll need a block of wood, drills; inside of our drills we have a Phillips bit driver as well as with 3/16 allen key and that’llbe way helpful to have when you’re building your playset. It may be helpfulto also have a socket set as well as a socket adapter, a 3/8 drill bit,safety glasses, allen keys which will be included with the hardware, 7 millimeterwrench 1/2″ wrench, 3/8″ wrench a hammer and a rubber mallet. Your playset comes in several boxes and pieces however, it will come in one big crate, solet’s take a look at what you should have received. Before we begin, make sure you’re workingin a flat level area away from any obstructions if you have any questionsreferring to the safety of this build, refer to your instruction manual. There are steps in this assembly that require more than one person so make sure youhave at least two people to help you. Alright! Let’s get started. First things first, we’re going to take the Pendulums and attach them to the Swing Bar. It’s important to notice, don’t over tighten the hardware because we want the Pendulums to swing freely. Next, you’re going to take the Cap and put it on the Top Pole. The Top Pole has four holes in the bottom eight holes on the top. You’re gonna put the Cap on the side with eight holes. Make sure that when you line theholes up with the Cap they don’t overlap. Next, take the two Poles. The side that has the eight holes at the top make the shape of a “V”. Put them on the ground. Next, you’re going to take the Outside Support Bracket and the Inside Support Bracket and attach them to the Top Poles. When installing the hardware, make sure you put them through the hole closest to the Cap. This step is usually easier with twopeople. Only finger tighten the hardware for now. Repeat the same step on the other twoPoles except, you’re going to be using two of the same Support Brackets. Again, this is normally easier with two people. Also remember to only finger tighten thehardware for now. Next, you’re going to take the Bracketand attach it to the Poles from the previous step. Make sure that the lip isfacing up. Remember only finger tighten for now. Next, we’re going to attach the Left and Right-Angle Brackets to the first Top Pole assembly that we used. It’s important to notice that the lip needsto be facing the top of the Pole. Remember only finger tighten thehardware for now. For the next couple steps you’re gonna use three people. First, stand up to the A-Frames that we’ve already assembled. Take the Swing-Bar and rest them in between the Brackets and line up the holes. If you have a hard time putting the Swing-Bar in the Brackets, loosen up the hardware. Attach the Swing-Bar to the Brackets using the hardware provided. Now, you can tighten the hardware on justthis end. Next, you’re gonna attached the Pendulums to the Trapeze Swing Bar using the hardware provided. Make sure when you tighten the hardware, that the Pendulums can swing freely. Slide the Trapeze Bar into the A-Frame. Secure the Trapeze Bar to the A-Framewith the hardware provided. And now you can tighten up all the hardware.

a lifetime of adventureAnd now you can tighten up all the hardware. Next, take the Cap and put it into the end of the Trapeze Bar using the hardwareprovided. Next, you’re gonna take the A-Frame Assembly and flip it over. Next, you’re gonna take the Leg Poles “FCD” and slide them into the Short Poles on theTrapeze Bar Side. To make sure you have the correct Pole, double check the parts identifier at the bottom of the Pole. It’s crucial that they go in on the sidewith the Trapeze Bar. Secure the legs together with the hardware. We’re gonna repeat the same steps wejust did previously. We’re gonna use Poles “FCC” and “FCE.” These poles are very similar. It’s very important that you know which poles which. “FCE” has more holes than “FCC” When looking at the Swing Set like this, this pole will be the front, this pole will be the back We’re gonna take “FCC” and put it in theback and “FCE” on the front. Secure the legs together with the hardware. This next step, we’re going to attach theTurn Bar to the legs on the side with the Trapeze Bar. If this step is hard to do, loosen the neighboring hardware. This next step, take the Deck Rail and attach it to the A-Frame. Make sure that the hooks are facing outwards and down. For this step, you need three adults andwe’re going to flip the A-frame over. So, this next step, we’re gonna take the 4Foot Caps and put them onto the poles. Make sure you line up the holes on theFeet Cap with the holes on the bottom of the pole. We’re going to use the hardware on the tower side and push pins on the opposite side. Leave this finger tight for now becausethere will be a step that you’ll take these off later. Line up the two square poles that are labeled “L” and “R” and you’re going to take a self-tappingscrew and put it in this hole. This next step, insert the long “R” pole into the short “R” pole making sure the “R’s” are lined up before you seat them. Repeat this step for the “L” poles. Make sure that you’ve done the previous steps properly because this next step is irreversible. You’re going to strike the pole on ascrap piece of wood five or six times, or until the small pole touches the screwin the big pole. Be careful not to hit your toes. Alsoavoid hitting the corner with the notches in it. Now, we’re going to repeat the same steps for the other pole assembly. If you end up bending one ofthe corners, use a flathead screwdriver to straighten it out. Secure the poles together using aself-tapping screw above the screw we put in earlier. Next, you’re going to the End Caps and place them on each end of the Pole Assemblies making sure the hole and the End Cap lines up with the hole and the pole. Next you’re going to takethe hardware and insert it in the bottom hole on the Long Pole through the EndCap. Make sure to just finger tighten this for now. Next, you’re gonna want to take the LongPanel Support Poles and put them into notches on the Long Deck Support Poles. Next, you’re going to use the hardwareprovided to attach the poles together. Make sure not to over tighten them because otherwise you’ll bend the frame. Next, you’re going to take the DeckSupport Rail and slide them into the notches on the Deck Support Pole. After that, take the Deck Support Bracket and line up the holes on top of the Deck Support Rails. Secure everything together using the hardware provided. Be sure not to over tighten. If you do you can bend the frame. Next, we’re going to attach the Deck Support Rail on the left side with the Bracket using the hardware provided. The Deck Support Poles are very similar so make sure you put the notches facing thetop of the assembly. The top of the assembly is where we added the small poles earlier. Repeat the previous steps for the right side. Next, take the Slide Mounting Bracket and attach them onto the Deck Rail using the hardware provided.

a lifetime of adventureNext, take the Slide Mounting Bracket and attach them onto the Deck Rail using the hardware provided. Remember not to tighten the hardware tootight or you could bend the frame. Next, we’re gonna lift the Deck Assembly up to the A-frame Assembly. When you’re attaching the Deck Assembly to the A-frame Assembly make sure that the notches on the Deck Assembly slide down two notcheson the A-frame Assembly. Now, secure the two together with thehardware provided. If you’re having trouble getting the hardware to go through try adjusting the playset so the holes line up a little better. Next take the three Floor Support Braces and slide them onto the notches in the Deck Support Poles. Next you’re going to take the 3/8″ drillbit and draw out the 24 indicated notches on the floorboards During this process make sure you drill down from the top side. Take the Floor Panel with the indentsand slide it onto the Deck so that the indents fit into the frame. With the second Floor Panel make sure that the streets line up with the first floor panel. Now, you can attach the Floor Panel to the deck support using the screws provided. You will be screwing these into the frame so make sure that you’ve gotten is fully charged and on the highest torque setting and that you’re putting pressure down as you screw these in. Place the Caps in the end of the UpperDeck Wall Supports making sure the holes line up. There are two poles that are similar, the one you’re going to need has more holes than the other one. Attach the Upper Deck Wall Support to the A-frame Bracket using the middle two holes with the cap nut on the backside Place a Cap in each end of the Main DeckPoles. Make sure that the holes with the Cap line up with each hole on the pole. Next we will be installing the Main DeckPoles. These poles are identical. However, we are going to install them differently. So, make sure that you have the pole on the backside oriented the same way we do,with the hole immediately above it on the left. We’re going to repeat the samesteps we just did for the front side. However, when you attach it make surethat the hole immediately above it is on the right side. Next, we will attach the Main-Deck Polesto the Upper Deck Wall Supports with the hardware. Now you can tighten up all the hardware. Next, you’re going to take the DeckHand Rail and place the Cap in the end without the notch, making sure the holesline up with the Cap and the Pole. On the backside of the playset, we’re going to take the notched end of the Deck Handrail and insert it into the cutout and rotateclockwise until it locks into place. Now, we’re going to secure the opposite end of the Handrail to the frame with the hardware. Only hand tighten for now. There’s another Deck Handrail that we’re going to use. This one has less holes than the previous one we just used. We’re going to install a Cap on the end thatdoes not have a notch making sure the holes line up with the Cap and the Pole. We’re gonna repeat the same steps wejust did for the back Handrail for the front Handrail. Remember only to finger tighten thehardware. Insert the Plugs into the Lower Deck Wall Support making sure the holes line up. First you’re gonna take the Lower Wall Support and place at the bottom of the A-frame Then take the Large Wall Panel and place it in front of the Lower Wall Support. Next, remove the hardware we previously put in so you can attach the wall to the frame. Next, we’re going to attach the lowerhalf of the Wall Panel to the frame with the hardware. Now, you can secure the middle of theWall Panel to the frame with the hardware. Just for future reference. This is where the Spiral Ladder is going to go. There is another pole that is similar but this one is labeled “FAQ”. Take your cap. Place one on each end of the Spiral Ladder Pole making sure the holes in the Cap and the holes in the Poleline up. Next, you’re gonna secure the Cap to thePole on the end with two holes. Now, go ahead and tighten any hardware we haven’t tightened already. Next, we’re going to attach a Spiral Ladder Pole to the frame with the hardware

a lifetime of adventure Next, we’re going to attach a Spiral Ladder Pole to the frame with the hardware

a lifetime of adventureNext, we’re going to attach a Spiral Ladder Pole to the frame with the hardware making sure that the end with two holes is on the bottom. If you have problems trying to get the holes to line up, you may just need to lift the playset a little bit. Next, we’re going to take aCap and insert it into a Store Front Support Tube on the end that has no Locking Tabs. Next you’re going to attach the Store Front Support Tube by inserting the Locking Tabs into the frame. Then, secure the ends with the hardware. Insert the Cap into the small Store FrontSupport Tube on the side that has no Locking Tabs. Make sure the holes in the Cap line up with the holes in the Pole. Insert the Locking Tabs on the Pole intothe frame on the front. Make sure the capped end is on the backside of the Pole. Now, secure both ends with the hardware. If you have a hard time gettingthe holes to line up try adjusting the Spiral Ladder Pole. Also remember, do not over tighten the hardware because it will cause the frame to bend. Just for future reference, this is where the Cargo Net Pole is going to go on the back of the playset. Place the Plug on each end of the Cargo Net Pole making sure the holes line up. Now, you’re gonna lock the Cap to the Pole with the hardware. Next, we’re going to do the Cargo Net Pole and attach it to the frame making sure that the slots are facing inward and the small holes are facing outward. It’s important to remember the end with two holes is at the bottom. Next, you’re going to take a Cap andinsert it into the Panel Support Pole on the end with outlet notches. Making sure the holes line up with the Pole. Attach the Panel Support Pole to the frame making sure the tabs slide into the notches on the outside while the capped end is on the inside. Attach the Pole to the frame using the hardware. Only finger tighten for now. On the back side of the playset, on the Handrail, we’re going to fill this hole with the hardware because it won’t be used. Next, you’re gonna take the Store FrontPanel and place it on the outside of the playset making sure the triangle indentson the panel are towards the bottom. Only finger tighten the hardware for now. Place the Plain Wall Panel next to theStore Front Panel on the outside with the triangles towards the bottom. Next, we’re going to take the Window Wall Panel and attach it to the frame on the front side. Making sure that triangle indentations are towards the ground and facing inward. Next, we’re going to take the Chalkboardand attach it to the top half of the playset making sure the triangleindentations are towards the bottom. This step we’re going to take the PlainWall Panel and put it next to the Chalkboard Panel making sure the triangle indentations or towards the bottom of the playset. Don’t attach the upper right-hand cornerof this Wall Panel. It’s going to be attached in later steps. Next, you’re going to insert the Clicker to the Steering Wheel. Next, you’re going to secure theSteering Wheel to the Rail while also securing the upper right-hand side of the Wall Panel. Insert the Cap into the Steering Wheel. Next you’re gonna take the Cap and put it on the Roof Support Tube on the end that has no Locking Tabs making sure that the hole in the Cap and the hole in the Tube line up. Both of these Poles are very similar. Make sure that before you attach this to the front of the playset you’re using the Pole with less holes. To attach the Pole, slide the tabbed ends into the notches on the Pole

a lifetime of adventureTo attach the Pole, slide the tabbed ends into the notches on the Pole and secure with hardware. Repeat the same process for the back Roof Support Pole. Next, we’re going to attach the Window Wall Panel to the upper part of the playset on the backside. For the bottom two holes in the WindowPanel, we’re going to use different hardware. Now, you can tighten up all the hardware. We’re going to connect the Roof SupportTrusses together making sure the holes are closer to the top. Now, you can attach the Roof Supports to the Trusses with the hardware. In this step, go ahead and fold the RoofPanels like this. Just a future reference. These Panels do interlock. One will go underneath and one will go on top. Next, you’re going to stand up the Trusses and attach them to the bottom Roof Panel using the hardware. Next, place the second Roof Panel onto the Trusses interlocking the Roof Panels and attaching with the hardware. Now you can attach the two Roof Panelstogether using the specified hardware. Using at least two people, lift theRoof up and place on the Deck Support Poles. Now attach the Roof to the frame using the hardware. Now secure the lower portion of the Roof to the Support Frame underneath. Next, we’re going to take the Ladder Rungand put a Cap on each end making sure that the holes in the Cap line up with the holes on the Pole. Next, we’re going to take the LongestLadder Rung Pole and attach it to the two Poles on the bottom hole. Now, finish attaching the rest of the Ladder Rungs to the frame going from largest tosmallest. For this step, we’re going to remove the Foot Cap and hardware and save it for later. Next, we’ve got the Cargo Net. On one side you’ve got four openholes and on the other side you’ve got four eye-bolts The top will also have an eye-bolt. The bottom will have a smaller hole. It’s important to get the orientation of this right so you can install it correctly on the playset. In order to put the Cargo Net on, we’re gonna have to remove hardware we’ve already put on so that we can assemble it easier. For this step, use another adult to lift the leg for you so you can slide the open end loop onto the leg. While you’ve got that leg up go aheadand put the Foot Cap back on and secure with the hardware. Next, you’re gonna take the eye-bolt from the Cargo Net and put it through the hole on the back of the Deck Frame. Now, you’re gonna swing the Cargo Net Pole over and put the eye-ball through the back of it. Make sure to secure with the hardware. When you secure the eye-bolt, make sure that it’s vertical not horizontal. Next, you’re gonna pull the Cargo Net back into place and secure with the hardware that you’ve saved. Next, you’re going to take your Cargo Net Support Tube and put a Cap in each end making sure the hole in the Cap lines up with a hole in the Pole. Next, you’re gonna slide the Cargo Net Support Tube through the bottom Cargo Net hole. Now attach the Cargo Net Support Pole to the frame of the playset. The Slide comes in two sections. The topsection and the bottom section. It has interlocking channels so that it holdsitself together while you’re putting the bolts in. If necessary, you can drill four holes in the top part of the Slide. Next, you’re going to take the Lower Section and align it with the Top Section. For this step, you’re going to secure the two Slide Sections together with the hardware. Flip the Slide over and drill three holes in the spots indicated. This next step may be helpful to have twopeople. You’re gonna lift the Slide up onto the Deck Brace and attach with the hardware. Now, you can attach the Swings and theTrapeze Bar to the pendulums. Now, we’re going to go over how toinstall your anchors. First, you need to locate the two A-frame Legs. On the front Swing Leg, you’re going to take off the Cap Nut put the Anchor on, Washer on andthen cap nut back on. Next, we’re going to grab your Anchoring Rod and put it into the Anchor. Then you’re going to put it as close as you can to the pole, and hammer into the ground at least 12″. You’re gonna repeat the same process youdid for the Front Leg as you will for the back to Anchor the playset down.
