How-to, Installation, safety tips -

Our customers asked us if there is a way to stop kids sneaking to play on our jungle gyms without adult supervision. Especially climbing on monkey bars, since it is the highest point from where kids can fall. First of all, all jungle gym accessories attach by simple-to-use quick links, therefore when no adult supervision available, simply remove all accessories until new use.
