  • Product Description

    Want to build your own playset? Our fort and swing set kits give you simple, step-by-step instructions for building your own playset, and include most of the hardware and accessories you will need for each design.

    IMPORTANT: Lumber and slide are not included 

    The Discovery Fort has a 5' x 5' (deck floor) and rests approximately 5 feet off the ground. It's designed for children under the age of 12 and can support over 250 lbs! All-bolt construction (no nails to work loose), 4x4 framing and other strengthening features are used to ensure the sturdiest 'Build-it-Yourself' playset. Anchor rods and/or supports are never needed with Plan-it Play kits.

    A six foot safety-zone perimeter is recommended around our playsets (3 feet minimum). The ladder steps are wide and flat (2"x6"x17") designed around our powder-coated 14 gauge brackets (hardware included). Each kit has an easy to follow 3D illustrated manual which includes a lumber purchase/check/cut sheet.
