Do you have a Rainbow brand playset in your backyard?

Do you find that it’s time to start replacing some of the pieces that may have started getting worn out over the years?

Do you want to find out where and how to order these replacement pieces?

What Rainbow Playset replacement parts can you order, anyway?

In this article, we’ll walk you step by step through the process of ordering replacement parts for your Rainbow playset. No matter which type of playset you have, you should be able to find some of the replacement parts needed to repair damages that may occur due to rough play, inclement weather, or simply because of age.

Remember that not all playsets have the same types or sizes of parts, so just because something is made for a certain type of playset, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to work for this brand. It’s always important to triple-check measurements of any replacement part you purchase, because even a half an inch difference in size can mean a part will not fit your playset at all.

Take a look at the information below to find out more about how to order these important pieces.

How to Order

Where to Order:

  • The best way to order replacement parts is to go through the Rainbow web site. This web site offers many replacement parts that you may not be able to find everywhere, and it is the ideal method for making sure you get parts that are designed to fit the type of set you have specifically.
  • You may be able to find generic replacement parts elsewhere, including on Amazon or even sometimes at hardware stores. Make sure you measure carefully before buying a generic replacement part.

Where to Find a Product List:

  • You can find a product list at the Rainbow web site.
  • You can also find out more information by checking out Rainbow’s online catalog, or by requesting a print catalog in the mail instead.

How to Tell What Product You Need:

  • Serial Numbers. The product you are looking to replace probably has a serial number stamped on it somewhere. This can be a great way to get started finding the exact replacement part you’re looking for.
  • Item Codes. If you still have your instruction manual or you have the original packaging your product came in, you should be able to narrow down the items you need by checking for their item codes as well.
  • Check Circle
    With both the item code and the serial number, you’ll be able to find the precise replacement part you need in no time.

    When you find a product you want, click on it. For this example, you will click on Flat Swing Yellow (72). This will take you to the product page.

Length of Time

  • It may take anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks to hear back about your request. From there, you’ll need to place your order and wait for shipping.
  • You may be able to do this more quickly if you call the company by phone. Make sure you check out the catalog first and know which items you need before calling.

Conclusion

Did you find the part or parts you’re looking for? Remember that, if you can’t find what you need from the company itself, you can always take a look at generic replacement parts instead. Just keep in mind that it’s crucial to measure everything more than once to make sure it’s going to fit. You should also double-check the safety standards for each part you purchase, because if it comes from a generic brand, it may not meet the safety levels of your exiting Rainbow playset.

Are there other fees you need to worry about when ordering these replacement parts? Does an order include installation or will that cost extra? Most of the time, replacement parts do not come with any installation included. If you buy a part like this, chances are good you’re going to have to install it on your own. If you do need someone to install it for you, you may be able to arrange something with the company where you ordered the part from. However, it’s probably more likely that you’re going to need to hire a handyman for this purpose or just take care of it on your own.

Keep all of this in mind when you’re trying to find new parts for your existing Rainbow playset. And don’t forget to check out other venues as well, including online marketplaces like Amazon or Walmart Marketplace. You may also be able to find pieces like this at flea markets, yard sales, or hardware stores, especially if the parts you’re looking for are larger or more significant, such as swing seats or canopies.

You don’t have to be stuck with a broken or damaged playset forever. Just make sure you’re careful when ordering new parts, and understand the installation process to ensure your child’s safety when playing on the replacement pieces you order.
