An old tire can serve as an excellent material for making a swing. Simple and robust construction can be placed on the homestead land or in the play space of the house. Children will appreciate such swing!
1. Choosing material
Take an old tire without serious damage.
2. Washing the tire
Thoroughly wash the tire inside and outside with a cleaning agent.
3. Choosing suitable bolts
Purchase three U-shaped bolts of the average diameter.
4. Drilling holes
Drill six holes (per two holes at the same distance from each other) matching the selected fastenings.
Check in advance how accurately the holes for bolts are drilled.
Dye the tire with the spray paint of the desired shade and let it dry thoroughly.
6. Fixing bolts
Now put the bolts into the holes.
And fix with the washers from the inside.
Such construction will be the result:
7. Preparing the chain
For the upper part of the swing, one will need a firm chain with fasteners.
8. Choosing suitable fasteners
To make a reliable construction one will need four U-shaped fasteners.
9. Fixing the chain
You should attach the fastener with the chain to every bolt in the car tire.
Connect the chains with one fastener from the other side. In the same place secure the two ends of a small chain, intended for attaching a swiveling hook.
You can hang the swing in any place convenient for you!
