Take Down the Swing Beam Climb back up on the ladder and remove the brackets or screws that keep the swing beam in place. When these are gone, the main swing beam should fall to the ground. After the main beam is down, unscrew and break apart the rest of the swing frame.

Similarly, you may ask, how do you take down a old swing set?

Step 1 - Start with the Swings When taking apart a swing set, it is best to start with the actual play parts. Remove the swings, the slide, the monkey bars and anything else that is used to swing, slide, or climb. Keep all bolts, washers, nuts, screws, and other fasteners somewhere safe.

Likewise, can you move a playset? Although moving a playset can be done at any time of year, it can be especially challenging in winter months, Byrum says.

  3. Donate it.
  4. Leave it for the new owners.
  5. Repurpose it.
