Please share the sitting weight limit thx

I found this in the Q&A section on the Amazon listing:

(Please note: I don’t work for Woot, I just volunteer to help out here on the forums.)

Discovering the actual load limit can be exciting.

If the swing is swung vigorously then the load stress may exceed static (still) load bearing.

Swings experience a **gravitational force** mass times gravitational acceleration

– where m is the mass of the swings and g≈9.81ms^(−2) is the gravitational acceleration

They pass this on to the beam.

The beam also exerts a **centripetal force** on the swings, which is

mω2r=mv2/r

– where ω is the swings’ angular frequency and v is their velocity.

The **two forces are additive** so the total force exerted by the swings and the beam on each other is their **sum.**

**Bottom line:** it is best to have a significant margin of safety if the item is going to be really a “swing” and not simply a seat.

Yeah, but generally these types of seats are used to just sit and swivel in. At least for adults…

Thank you!

I do not want the gravity of the situation to befall you.

I was asking for a friend who never sits alone.
