Description:
This recall involves about 700 swing sets and includes the "To Fro" models below.

Third-party sales representatives are individuals and companies who market and sell Kompan playground equipment from business to business.
What To Do:
Immediately stop using the recalled swing sets and remove the chains connecting the seats to the top beam. A retrofit kit will be provided to all affected customers with installation instructions.
