Kmart Monkey Bar Swing Set
Kmart is a retail chain that was founded in 1962. At its peak, Kmart was the third-largest retailer in the United States, behind Walmart and Target. The company was known for its discount prices and its “Blue Light Specials,” which were impromptu sales that were announced over the store’s public address system. However, in recent years, Kmart has struggled to compete with other retailers and has closed many of its stores. As of 2021, Kmart has just a handful of stores remaining in the United States, and it has shifted its focus to online sales.

Information on Playground Surfacing Materials
Select Protective Surfacing
One of the most important things you can do to reduce the likelihood of serious head injuries is to install shock-absorbing protective surfacing under and around your play equipment. The protective surfacing should be applied to a depth that is suitable for the equipment height in accordance with ASTM Specification F1292. There are different types of surfacing to choose from; whichever product you select, follow these guidelines:
Maintain a minimum depth of 9 inches of loose-fill materials such as wood mulch/chips, engineered wood fiber (EWF), or shredded/recycled rubber mulch for equipment up to 8 feet high; and 9 inches of sand or pea gravel for equipment up to 5 feet high.
NOTE: An initial fill level of 12 inches will compress to about a 9-inch depth of surfacing over time. The surfacing will also compact, displace, and settle, and should be periodically refilled to maintain at least a 9-inch depth.
Use a minimum of 6 inches of protective surfacing for play equipment less than 4 feet in height. If maintained properly, this should be adequate. (At depths less than 6 inches, the protective material is too easily displaced or compacted.)
NOTE: Do not install home playground equipment over concrete, asphalt, or any other hard surface. A fall onto a hard surface can result in serious injury to the equipment user. Grass and dirt are not considered protective surfacing because wear and environmental factors can reduce their shock-absorbing effectiveness. Carpeting and thin mats are generally not adequate protective surfacing.
Ground-level equipment – such as a sandbox, activity wall, playhouse, or other equipment that has no elevated play surface – does not need any protective surfacing. Use containment, such as digging out around the perimeter and/or lining the perimeter with landscape edging. Don’t forget to account for water drainage.
Check and maintain the depth of the loose-fill surfacing material. To maintain the right amount of loose-fill materials, mark the correct level on play equipment support posts. That way you can easily see when to replenish and/or redistribute the surfacing.
Do not install loose fill surfacing over hard surfaces such as concrete or asphalt. Poured-In-Place Surfaces or Pre-Manufactured Rubber Tiles—You may be interested in using surfacing other than loose-fill materials – like rubber tiles or poured-in-place surfaces. Installations of these surfaces generally require a professional and are not “do-it-yourself’ projects.
Review surface specifications before purchasing this type of surfacing. Ask the installer/manufacturer for a report showing that the product has been tested to the following safety standard: ASTM F1292 Standard Specification for Impact Attenuation of Surfacing Materials within the Use Zone of Playground Equipment.
This report should show the specific height for which the surface is intended to protect against serious head injury. This height should be equal to or greater than the fall height — the vertical distance between a designated play surface (elevated surface for standing, sitting, or climbing) and the protective surfacing below — of your play equipment. Check the protective surfacing frequently for wear.

FAQs About Kmart Monkey Bar Swing Set
Can a swing set have monkey bars added to it?
One of the most common swing set addition ideas is the addition of monkey bars, and it is easy to understand why. A swing set with monkey bars offers a completely unique and active way to play. However, the difficulty of monkey bars, or overhead climbers as we refer to them, is intended to appeal to older children as well.
What kind of weight can monkey bars support?
What kind of weight can it support? 165 pounds is the maximum suggested cargo load for Monkey Bars (74.8 kg). Your roof could be harmed by heavier loads.
How can I make my monkey bars stronger?
Every pull-up bar you see hangs from it. Find a rowing machine if you have nothing to hang on to. Jaksetic advises a regular schedule of scapular retractions, pull-ups, chin-ups, and lat pull-downs to build the muscles required to master the monkey bars in addition to practicing hanging.
What are monkey bars used for?
swivel bars When they swing from one bar to the next while using monkey bars, kids can increase their upper arm flexibility and strength. The grip of the hands is likewise strengthened by monkey bars.
Why can monkeys swing so quickly?
Monkeys have incredibly flexible shoulder joints, much like humans, which enable the arm to rotate in a full circle and provide their arms with a wide range of motion. Monkeys can move fast by swinging and climbing hand over hand thanks to their adaptable shoulder joints.
What is the name for monkey swinging?
The method used by apes and monkeys to swing through the trees is brachiation, which is the topic of today’s A Moment of Science. Swinging suspended from one handhold to another is known as brachiation. Although chimpanzees, orangutans, and spider monkeys can brachiate, gibbons do so most frequently.
How far apart should monkey bars be?
To prevent trapping, make sure the bars are at least 9′′ apart by measuring them. To avoid severe head injuries, make sure there is at least 9′′ of the robust surface beneath the monkey bars. Remember that a 9′′ surface might not completely prevent fractures or other minor injuries.
How high above the ground should monkey bars be?
They recommend that the maximum fall height for equipment intended for preschoolers (ages 2 to 5) be 60 inches, but they do not provide any supporting data (152.4 cm). 100% of the equipment, including the domestic monkey bars, exceeded this height according to our analysis of the data.
Are strong muscles required to perform monkey bars?
The monkey bars are a common hurdle in both military and civilian obstacle courses for a reason—they’re a workout that develops your grip, shoulders, back, arms, core, and agility. You’ll need a base level of strength to even attempt to cross the monkey bars.
What are the monkey bars rules?
One participant, known as the “monkey,” attempts to grab the ball while standing in the center. The ball is thrown over their heads by the opposing two players. The object of the game is to prevent the middle player from catching the ball.
