Introduction: How to Make a Tire Swing!

This explains how to build a tire swing. On the surface, a simple tire with a rope would seem to be a good tire swing. After all, it worked for us when we were children. But, these days, just tying a rope to a tire is not good enough. For purchased play sets, tires are now mounted horizontally instead of vertically, and that presents an entirely set of its own challenges. Here is how I succeeded in building my children a professional looking tire swing for half the cost!

Let me note at the onset that this instructable is not a joke. It is long and detailed, with lots for 1 last update 2020/07/03 of pictures. If you''t waste your time looking through it. But, if you are truly interested in building a tire swing, then this is serious and detailed instructions that ought to give you every tool to be successful. Good luck!This explains how to build a tire swing. On the surface, a simple tire with a rope would seem to be a good tire swing. After all, it worked for us when we were children.

Step 1: Pick Out a Tire!

First, pick out a tire. Thinking that "" will only get you in trouble here. Without being indelicate, consider the size of the derrieres that will be riding the swing. For smaller children, a big tire just won''s bigger (the tire, not the derriere) than the one on your wheelbarrow! I was looking at a tire from a pickup truck, but realized our 2 1/2 year old twins wouldn''d just taken off the 15"" drill bit and drill holes around the sidewall, ever few inches. The holes don''ll drain better if the holes are more evenly spaced. I used the tread pattern to space the holes. Here''s top-side up. This is where we''ll attach to the chains that will support the tire swing. Since a triangle is the most stable plane, you''t stick out over the curvature of the tire. Here''t, I adjusted the string & tried it again. This process took three attempts before I hit the perfect distance. I drilled the other two holes. Then, I threaded the eye bolts with one nut & a fender washer. Then I threaded the eye-bolt through the tire. On the inside of the tire, I placed another fender washer on the eye-bolt, then the lock washer, & finally the 2nd nut, which I tightened down. Here are a few pics of the hardware, in the sequence in which they are to be attached:

Step 4: Attach the Eye-Bolts (Part 3)

The tire sidewall is now being squeezed between the two big flat fender washers. This prevents the smaller nut from pulling thru the sidewall as it gets stressed by the weight of the person swinging. Here''ll have to do it on all the s-hook attachments.

Step 7: Attach the Eye-Bolts (Part 4)

Speaking of doing it again, do it again for the 2nd s-hook on the 2nd eye-bolt and for the 3rd s-hook on the 3rd eye-bolt.

Here''s time to attach each of the 3''t want/need it adjustable, then either use the Connector Link to attach it to the hanging chain, or use another s-hook. The s-hooks came in packs of two, so I had 4 of them, using 3 at the tire & 1 at the top of the chains. Instead of getting another two-pack of s-hooks, I got the Connector Link (I didn''s a shot with the Clip-Hook connected to the Connector Link connected to the Swivel connected to the S-Hook connected to the hip bone connected to the knee bone! well, you''s a pic of the 12''s a pic of the 12''m going to build, once I get the structure in place).

Step 15: Connector Link on Hanging Chain

Here''s the final picture of the finished project (same as the first one):

Step 18: Final Notes:

Let me provide some final notes. I used components that were rated at a weight capacity greater than anything that''m 200 pounds, so I wanted to make SURE that it was safe! So, I went with double weight protection just to be certain. The whole thing, except for the tire, cost about $60.00. You could buy the kit from one of the playset manufacturers. The kit runs just a hair under $100.00. Doing it this way gave me the flexibility to do what I wanted and hang it how I wanted, and saved money along the way. If anyone has any comments, I''t ask me to do an instructable on how to build the completed playset! I''d really like to know.

Really nice instructions, but I am quite worried by the 400lb rating on the swivel.

DIY Queen Bed Frame Planhow to DIY Queen Bed Frame Plan for There are at least two reasons. First, there is dynamic load to consider. A user can hop onto the swing, which will produce a dynamic load greater than the weight of the user.

Second, there is the centrifugal force to consider. The tension in a pendulum is mgcosθ + mv2/r ( https://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/299948... ). At maximum speed, this will be mg+mv^2/r. We know that mv^2/2 = mgh by conservation of energy, where h is maximum swing height. So, the maximum tension will be mg+2mgh/r=(1+2h/r)mg. If you swing to 90 degrees, that load will be 3 times the weight of the system (mainly, user+tire) as then h=r. If you swing to 45 degrees, the load will be 2.4 times the weight of the system, as then h=1/sqrt(2). And you want a safety factor on top of that.

I am not an engineer, but I would want to make sure that the swivel has a breaking strength of at least about 6 times the maximum weight of the combined users. If the maximum is a 200 lb adult, I''t swing past 45 degrees (but I think you really don''m having trouble finding heavy duty eye bolts. Please could you give some guidance on the size / spec?

DIY Queen Bed Frame Planhow to DIY Queen Bed Frame Plan for 1/4"" (thread length) is adequate for this. Could go to 5/16 if you are concerned. However use nylon insert nuts so they don't work loose.

If you use connector links instead of S hooks to attach the tire, you can easily change tires. This may be of worth as your kids grow.

I never liked chains on swings as a kid. Cold, and mittens would catch in them, sometimes would get pinched if I got it really pumped up. You can do this same approach and use 1/2""js-edit-container""post js-comment""C8AZOE5HFPTRLA1""SIT7JUOFGYJ94A1""M7RZBJJFPQLEFWC""post-header""meta""votes js-vote-count
