LOL! You're still going on about this? So lets say the Mr was all the way on the right side of the swing sitting down, and then the Mrs came out and sat on his lap, that means all of their weight plus half of the weight of the swing would be on one bracket. If they were sitting perfectly in the middle then what you're doubling of the weight capacity. With your first post you were talking about welding some kind of STEEL with a welded eye hook of some kind, and yet your saying those simple brackets designed for swings are overkill???LOL! I don't care if the OP uses a device specifically made for swings or not.. If you don't think the product that I supplied isn't sufficient, urrr, too sufficient, that's fine, just put up a link for what you would use sir.
