What’s the Problem?

According to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) [1], this recall affects Backyard Discovery Big Brutus, Little Brutus and Mini Brutus metal swing sets with the following manufacture codes: 03/2019-O, 02/2020-T, 03/2020-T, 04/2020-T, 05/2020-O, and 07/2020-O; and manufacture dates March 2019 through July 2020.

“Leisure Time Products has received three reports of the swing hanger attachment failing, which resulted in one side of the swing falling,” CPSC said.

The recalled swing sets have a green top tube with white legs and green cross braces. The manufacture code and manufacture date are located on the label on the leg of the swing set.

Affected swing sets were sold online from May 2019 through January 2021 for between $400 to $570, depending on the model.

If you purchased a swing set that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact Leisure Time Products for a free repair kit.

This recall began on May 13, 2021.

The Dangers of Swing Sets: Head Injuries to Children

At least 50,000 children in the U.S. go to the emergency room with injuries sustained on playground equipment each year, which equals out to about 137 children admitted to an ER each day, according to the CPSC.

Between Oct. 2000 and Sept. 2001, U.S. hospital emergency rooms reported that at least 8,250 children under the age of 2 were injured by playground equipment. Head and facial injuries in children using playground equipment made up 53% of all playground injuries seen in the emergency room. After falls from equipment, the 2nd most common incident was impact injuries or being struck by playground equipment that was being used by another child.

CPSC recommends that on home playground equipment which includes multiple play activities, such as a slide and swing set, the slide does not exit in front of the swing. Each piece of equipment should have at least 6 feet of play area around it, and one should separate active and quiet activities from each other.
