Swing by Whipsmart

Because we can't all swing from the rafters...

This is great for those of us who cannot swing from the rafters, swinging from the door comes in a close second!

Use

Have a very sturdy door? Looking for a different adventure? Are the kids (or roommates) out for the night? This just MIGHT be something you need to add into your collection. That is as long as you fall into the weight guidelines and have an extra sturdy door handy.

Face your partner and let him rock your world, or turn your back to him and face the door (and still let him rock your world!).

Design / Craftsmanship / Material

This door swing is constructed of adjustable nylon straps, which can support up to 200 pounds. The cushioning for the thighs, and handles are made up of durable neoprene. For cleaning, a damp cloth and some soap as needed should take care of any dirt that may build up.

The swing itself is in two pieces, I don't know why, but I honestly anticipated just a single piece. The nylon straps can be lengthened or shortened depending on each individual preference. With the leg support towards the bottom and the hand supports towards the top.

Two hollow dowels, that measure about four inches are secured at the top, and is what drapes over the door and keeps the swing secure.

Performance

Honestly, I anticipated this to be a fairly easy product to use. And I eagerly awaited it's arrival. I thought this would be the answer to those nights where my husband wanted some action, but I hurt too badly. I was recently diagnosed, after suffering for years, with arthritis. I thought this would be great to get the pressure off some of the most heavily affected joints, and allow for some positioning fun!

Our biggest complaint is, as the directions state; it's easiest to slide into the swing and THEN adjust the straps. For us we found this to be nearly impossible. Every time that my husband would go to adjust the straps, it would actually cause the door to pop open. Leaving me to occasionally tumble to the floor.

As a result we found it easier to actually adjust the straps prior to hoping in, and then using a stool to ease myself into the straps.

Despite being well within the weight requirements, I thought the pressure on my thighs from the straps were a bit uncomfortable. We found this swing to be most enjoyable if I'd face the door and use the thigh straps more as stirrups.
    • Aids in positioning

Packaging

If you wanted to travel with the swing itself and leave the box at home, I see no reason why it would raise any eyebrows. The box itself completely gives away it's intended use, complete with directions posted on the outside.

The manufacturer should consider using a slightly larger box, my swing was packed in such a way that the box itself couldn't even close.
    • Minimal
    • Not discreet

Experience

Once we discovered the need for us to adjust the straps prior to jumping in, this was quite the fun product. Honestly, now we just need a night with absolutely no one else home so we can really go to town!!!

    great review, thanks. did you use this on a hollow core door or solid core? I dont see this being safe with the standard hollow core doors that are in most houses and apartments.

    This swing would destroy our cheap doors. Sigh. I can't wait to get solid-wood doors. Thanks for the review!
