+Try not to help your child to climb, children develop at different rates and depending on their ability and age they will climb at their own pace.
+Remain close by, so your child feels comfortable in the rope ladder. The safest way to climb is from the inside of the climber.
+Only one child should climb at once. Place a carpet underneath the climber.
Wiwiurka is not responsible for any incident that could occur from the misuse of the rope ladder. Children under 4 or children with special needs should use the climber under an adult's supervision.
Frequently asked questions:
What is the height of the rope ladder?
The large climber is 11.5 feet tall, from the bottom rung to the snap ring.
What do I need to hang it?
To hang it from a Concrete ceiling:
Place an expansion plug with an eyebolt that can support a weight of 80kg (176.37lb).
Place a safety eyebolt that can support a weight of 175 Lbs
The general recommendation is to only hang swings, hammocks or any heavy object from a support beam on your roof. We also recommend asking for guidance at your local hardware store.
From a tree branch:
Please make sure to find a tree with a middle age and height, because the branch would have to be at least 11 feet tall.
There are many ways to hang the swings or accessories from the tree branch. You can find many suggestions online. We suggest the easiest and safest way we hang all of our outside structures.
Use a piece of flexible hose (3 inches shorter than the tree branch's circumference, where the climber will be hanged) to protect the extra rope from grazing, where the ladder will be hanged.
Once the rope is inside the hose, knot the rope to the branch. A bowline knot is ideal. The carabiner will hang from the knot keyhole, along with the ladder. Ready to enjoy!
Check the rope at least once a year for any wear and replace if necessary. Please feel free to contact us if you need replacement material.
The ladder's design reduces risks of injury but doesn’t avoid it. We suggest remaining close to your children the first couple of weeks while they get used to it. Children under the age of 4 or with special needs must use the ladder only under the supervision of an adult.
To be safe, one child, although we have seen up to 5 kids inside and outside of the climber!
Should children climb from the inside or the outside?
Both. We suggest that children under the age of 5 climb from the inside because the risk to fall is minimized.
What finish do you use? Is it non-toxic?
The wood finish used for interiors is linseed oil. For outdoors, we apply a non-toxic, acrylic sealant with a water base.
Check all ropes regularly, if a replacement is needed please contact us. For external use we recommend the application of an exterior wood treatment once a year.
Mounting hardware not included. We recommend that you get a heavy duty swing hangers kit for your ceiling. If you don’t have hardware or knowledge about the installation, please seek professional help.
Designed and made in Mexico
The first handcrafted playset area came into life in 2010 resulting from Marek’s talent and creativity, using the very same pieces of wood that he had brought home from his last sustainable tree trimming session, which was his full-time profession. The wooden pieces were so beautiful he just could not let them end up as firewood! After that very first set of swings, many more playsets, tree-houses and wooden playthings came into being.
