Homestand II and HPSI are the same except for the legs. The Homestand
has 2 piece legs for 2 heights of 6 ½ and 7 ½ ‘ tall. Great for growing children while the HPSI has 1 piece legs for a 7 ½’ height. The HPSI is slightly more stable making it a good choice for schools or programs especially if you will not need to pack it in the trunk of a car.
A great swing frame for teens and older who like to push their swinging.
Looking much like the HPSI this frame can be a good transition into adulthood. Also a good choice for middle or high schools.
If you need some serious swinging for big or heavy users and need a portable
frame, consider the VLF. It can accommodate a tire swing with multiple users or just plain swinging back and forth.
We developed the Swing-Swing for multi-purpose rooms for schools or as a temporary swing place in homes. Putting the swinger in the living room with the rest of the family. It is up or down in about 30 seconds. The wall mount makes it extremely stable.
An inexpensive swing holder but with all the features. Use the BAR only where overhead beams are spaced at 16” apart. If your overhead beams are not 16” spaced or are not uniform, use the BBB (Baltic Birch Bar). Also use the BBB if you need to get creative about installation but want an our rope swing hangars and swivel all in one set-up.
Kim who has had a HOMESTAND for ten years says: Tom, Actually, my husband and I have commented several times over the years that it is one the best purchases for our money that we’ve made (the others being laser eye corrective surgery and the built-in cabinetry in our walk-in closet, hehe) and that is still the case. We have 2 younger boys with Autism (now ages 15 and 11) who still use it regularly. Our oldest son has Aspergers Syndrome and prefers the trampoline. I’ve often wished there was an olympic event of who can spin the longest without getting dizzy, my middle son would win the gold. I also have to mention that it is a hit with all the other kids who come to visit and play at our house (its definitely the favorite “toy” – and they remember the swing and ask about it when they come over again. I’m so glad you have found this niche in the market, I hope it is doing well for you, as it had brought our family so much enjoyment over the years. I only wish there where more well-made and sturdy products for older kids and adults who need that kinds of rocking and motion! I thought I’d share a little about our family so you can understand how deeply we appreciation your wonderful products and equally excellent customer service! Its so nice to be remembered, even when I randomly order something from website! So, just wanted to say thanks and send our best wishes to you and your family!
Ron of ASL Therapy in Florida says: Dear Take a Swing, we’ve been using your VLF for almost a year, it is working out perfectly for us and doing just what we needed. The we’ve tried various swing frames but your VLF is both cost and user effective for our swinging population. What a great product. Thanks again, Ron
