Most families in this country have a swing set that their children can play on, but few of these swing sets are set up properly to keep a child from getting hurt. Swing sets should be placed on a level surface and well anchored to the ground. Those that are placed on hills or not placed deeply in the ground run the risk of turning over when a child uses them. A child does not have too swing too high before the momentum can carry over and create an accident where they as well as any other kids on the swing set at the time potentially get hurt.

A swing set should also be placed so that the ground underneath provides a soft cushion should a child fall off of it. While having wood chips or rubber underneath is ideal as long as the ground is relatively soft this will work to protect a child. Just as a personal tracking device can make children safer so too can properly setting up a swing set at your home keep them safer.
