Don't buy for playground
These are really small, like really small, maybe the size of my pinky finger.Bought two of these for the rock wall we are building for our 4 year old and no way they can be used. The company was really great though. They contacted me after seeing my review offering to help with the return and offered to send me some links for something better suited for my 4 year old. Would def work with this company again.

What holds did you end up getting? I am also building something for my kids.

these little things are great! yes they do make great footholds but they also make really great training handholds. and they were relatively cheap for how much possibility you get.

good for the price
I'm going to start at 4 stars as I haven't been using these too long yet, Going off of the only review posted, I did notice these were on the fragile side when they showed up, so I did some tinkering on the install. Here's what you do. Get some Gorilla tape at Home Depot, it's the best duct tape on the market, you'll be using it for making micro-bushings for this application, and if you don't have one, buy a utility knife too. Put a piece of tape across the bottom of the hold, cross cut where the holes are, and use a screw to push the tabs into the hole. Then place the hold where it should go, mark, and drill the pilot holes. Then put a piece of tape on the wall where the hold will go. Next step, using 1/2 inch pieces of tape, make washers for the screws by sticking 2 pieces of tape together, cross hatch the center just small enough for the screw to go through, and you have your washer. Then, just put the hold on the wall, line up the holes with the pilot holes, thread the washer on the screw, and with a HAND! screwdriver, screw the hold to the wall, gently torquing each screw back and forth until it is snug. Then with the knife, trim the edges of the tape bushing away, and you're almost done. After a few weeks, try to snug the screws a little bit, as the backing wood may have shrunk, or expanded depending on humidity, and you should be good. It's painstaking, but always drill pilot holes, and use a hand screwdriver to screw them on.

I would not recommend them. They are too fragile and break easly. All but 12 of them broke when I mounted them on my son's climbing wall. 1 star

Iam building a rock wall attached to my kids play area. I just do not know how many hand holds and how to space them to make the wall sutable for children.

Give them options everywhere, and all over the place. They are creative. Not enough, add more. Too many, unbolt a few. Change it up every now and then. Give them a challenge. Make those little brains work. Hand holds make great foot holds, but not vice versa.If you want something more like climbing a real wall check out a local climbing gym to get a better idea.
