This went together pretty easily. I think the company could do a couple of things to make it even easier - 1.) the tabs they refer to are very hard to make out. The plastic wasn't cut the greatest so the tabs were not very distinct. I think you could put a permanent marking on the inside that would allow the user to align the sides better. 2.)Better pictures of all sides of the slide. It did take two people to put the actual slide together. Here again the picture on the front of the instructions helped us the most. I would recommend reading the instructions then giving them to the person helping you and have them read them. My wife was a great help. She put the bolts together while I held it and conformed it to align. We broke this up into a couple evenings putting together. If you have a clamp or needle nose vise grips they are very helpful. Overall great purchase and very pleased
Swing N Slide 5ft Turbo Slide
Jeff from Cleveland, OH – Verified Buyer
Purchased this slide as an addition to the playground I was building for my daughter in our backyard. Shipped quickly, arrived in good condition. Heavy! When the time came to assemble, I was a little worried that this item wouldn't hold up due to the extremely thin plastic that is used. However, it seems to be holding up ok at the moment. The kids absolutely love it, and it seems to make the neighbors jealous. Assembly wasn't fun, at all, but I had already planned on that judging from previous reviews. Compared to what's out there, and for the price, its still a very decent slide. Overall, we're glad we went with this slide as opposed to a wavy slide. Time will tell how well it holds up. Final note, I've yet to have any problems with the swing-n-slide brand products we've purchased in the past, which helped ease my mind when making this purchase. Great value.

The slide arrived on time. I would suggest allowing it to sit in the sun and heat up for a bit before assembling it. You do have to use some brute force to get some of the sections to line up properly. It was fairly easy to assemble, just took a while. I was able to assembly most of it by myself with a little bit of kid help. The assembly instructions aren't the greatest, but they are serviceable. The bolts can be hard to tighten, my husband had to do that part. Overall a solid slide, but you will need to set aside a good amount of time to assemble it.
Kids love it!

This slide is fantastic in all categories. The quality is good, all pieces and hardware were included (except wood to attach to our treehouse), and it was very easy to put together with 2 people. So far the kids love it and it is exactly as described. The only thing I wanted to note is that the slide does say it has a 250 pound weight limit. I would never trust this with a person that weighs that much. My husband goes down it (170lbs) and it starts to shake, but holds up just fine. I'm not sure though what would happen if he was to continually use it. I wouldn't recommend anyone over 200lbs (if they would even fit through the opening as it isn't that large) going down it. Overall, we are very satisfied!
Nice slide...time consuming to put together though

It wasn't the easiest thing to put together. I assembled my entire swingset from scratch and this turbo slide definitely took the longest to put together. The holes didn't always line up so I was forced to drill new holes. It's been up for a few days now and my kids love it. Hope it holds up for years to come.
Turbo slide a hit!

All four of our grandchildren, ages 4, 3 2 and 2 absolutely love it! We have already gotten our money's worth. Would buy it again in a heartbeat! My husband put it together and then he and his son attached it. Not hard at all.

We were very pleased with the quality and price of this slide. It worked perfectly with the treehouse that my husband built in the backyard. It was exactly as the website described. I would recommend this product to a friend.

Turbo Tube Slide
Allison from Whitinsville, MA – Verified Buyer
My kids love the slide and once put together enjoyed it every day! The only issue was putting it together was quite a task and sometimes it was hard to line up all of the holes correctly but it worked out in the end

Great slide. My 6 and 10 year olds love it. I have went down it and it feels safe. The only thing that worries me , is that the two entrance peaces did not have full moldings in the corners. It was so thin you can see through it and push a dent with your fingers. The metal brace goes up to it, so it should be ok.
