    Ive built a few and they are real easy.

    2 - Anchors - The deeper they screw in the better

    steel cable with plastic coating

    2 - clamps - for ends of the cable

    As far as the handles you can buy prefab handles

    Just remember to put a stop about 4 feet from the end if you have this going at an angle IE downhill. My buddy set one up at his house for his brothers kids and for got the stop. Lucky he took the test ride. Right into the tree. Havent laughed that hard in a long time.
