4 of 5 Pretty good, not perfect. August 30, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Kalamazoo, MI United States  
I researched this project for a long time.  I mounted an 8ft 4x6 12 feet high.   It is VERY sturdy in the vertical axis.
The problem is (and I specifically asked about this before buying but was told not to worry) that the motion of the swing will carry the beam back and forth along the long axis of each lag bolt.  Worse on the floating bracket and to a lesser degree the pipe bracket.  There is too much play along this axis.  This play is fine for houses that have multiple boards constraining each other, but with only one board there is nothing constraining that axis.  The action was annoying and I think even dangerous with a heavy weight banging alternately against the spacer and the lag head.  Our solution was to put U clamps around the lags to constrain that movement.  We may have to adjust seasonally as the trees grow, but that is just fine.  
The swing works great with our fix.
Come up with a fix for this flaw and this kit is A plus.  As is, I'd say A minus.
