Our Take on Jack Post 4’ Swing
The Jack Post 4’ Swing is a relatively inexpensive option when it comes to porch swings and can make for a great addition to anyone’s outside living space. When looking into different options for porch swings for our home, some of the things we found appealing about the Jack Post 4’ Swing were the price, that all the hardware was included and that the unfinished wood could be painted to match the outside of our home or even stained to match the accents and wood of our porch.
When we received the swing and opened the box, we did notice that some of the wood pieces were beginning to splinter. Although this is not ideal, it was easy to sand down these areas since we planned to paint the swing. Once the swing was painted, we also used an all-weather wood seal to help protect it from the weather and also prevent any additional splintering. After assembling the Jack Post 4’ Swing we did notice it was a bit flimsy but, for the price, adding some reinforcing screws was not an issue.
After assembly was complete, hanging the swing was very easy – with all the hardware included, it was just a matter of finding an area where we wanted to swing to be placed. Another appealing feature of this swing is that it can be hung from a porch beam or used with swing frame, depending on what function it will serve. Once hung, the swing looked great and is a hit with our family and friends. Overall, the Jack Post 4’ Swing is a great, affordable addition to anyone’s outdoor porch or patio area.
