Swing set brackets can help make your swing set safer, and make putting it together easier. From an assembly standpoint, they eliminate mitre cuts. And allow you to determine the proper A-frame angle for swing set balance and stability. The brackets also mount the beam to the A-frame. This adds considerable strength to the construction. Each bracket is made of heavy-duty 14-gauge galvanized steel. Consider swing set brackets as a useful, inexpensive aid in building your swing set.
