Is it a good deal?
At just a hundred bucks for a big piece of patio furniture that seats two people it seems like a good deal. Once I did some searching online I can say that I did not find any other patio swings that were cheaper than this one. Of course I can’t check every store’s website but it usually doesn’t take long to find it if there is a better deal out there. Similar sets range from $115 to $300+ depending on the style and the store. The best option I found is this Tangkula 2 Person Canopy Swing for around $115 with free delivery at the time of writing this. Of course there are a lot of options out there if you want a different style or color swing.
Belavi Two Person Canopy Swing Reviews
The instructions could’ve been clearer, I had an issue with one of the screw holes not fitting a screw, the wind blows it over, so easy it put a hole in it the first week I had it, and it hasn’t even been a year and the plastic gear that holds the canopy broke and it’s been hard trying to find a replacement for it. I had to keep taking the canopy down at the first sign of wind, because our Oklahoma when will launch this sucker. It squeaks really bad when you swing but overall it’s OK. I won’t buy it again. And because of my experience with this swing, I decided not to buy the gazebo from Aldi’s.
Nightmare to put together, worth the effort of you get it on sale
So I’m one of those people who love to put furniture together. Ikea is my favorite store, Lego has always been my favorite line of toy. Sometimes I barely need the instructions to figure things out. So believe me when I say this is a nightmare to put together.
The instructions are awkward, and the way the package of screws, ect., is labeled (on the opposite side from where you access them) it made for a lot of flipping over, rereading instructions, and dropping things. The holes can eventually line up, but you almost have to very loosely put it together without tightening anything, and then go back and tighten everything all at once. For example, the metal brace between the two legs is about 2 inches too short when the top pieces are bolted tightly, but once it’s in place everything can be tightened with strong hands. Mine have arthritis, so I borrowed my husband’s, but even so I did pretty well on most of it. I ended up loosening everything several times and then going back over, and it did feel very sturdy afterwards.
I bought this on clearance for $25, so to me it was well worth the price. I’m not sure I would feel the same at full price, since there are other options for slightly more that are bigger or have more cushion, and presumably are easier to put together. However, I have been wanting a porch swing for a long time, so I’m pretty happy with it.
The holes on the seat arms don’t line up with the holes on the seat. Can’t make it work without stripping the threads. Not happy!
