DIY - Old Fashioned Tire Swing

If you have a large tree in your yard and some kids who enjoy swinging, here is a fun and relatively inexpensive project for you. All you need is an old tire which you can probably get for free from the local service station and a few pieces of hardware you can pick up at your local hardware store. You will need 3 zinc coated 1 inch link chains 4 1/2 ft long. You will also need 3 U-bolts (2 inch), one zinc coated quick connect and of course rope to hang the swing in a tree. For detailed instructions go to: http://livedan330.com/2013/06/18/2013617diy-old-fashioned-tire-swing/ and don't forget to follow me on Hometalk.
