Homemade wooden forts and swingsets, although designed with the best of intentions, are made with entrapment areas, exposed bolts, inferior hardware, or are just plain under engineered. All designs begin as a base wooden fort with instructions that show step by step, how to add 2, 3, or 4 swing positions. I plan to order some metal brackets from Lowes, but don't know if I need the triangular ones or the little L-shaped ones.  Or both.
I'd love to see photos of your projects, or get links to online plans to help.  I want this to last for as long as my boys want to swing, and then be used for a chicken coop.  Thank you for your help!

I am not sure what exactly kind of metal brackets you mean -- but you would need ones *expressly designed* for constructing an A-frame swingset.
The thing is, in order to make a strong stable swingset you need some rather exact and complex multiple angles where the legs meet each other and the top beam. Whether to make the top beam a 4x4, 4x6, or doubled (or tripled) 2x lumber depends on what forces you're expecting the swingset to withstand, how long the unsupported part of the beam, and what kind of hardware you are intending to use for hanging the swings from.
I realize that does not exactly answer your original request FOR plans but it's some things to think about.

All of our wooden swingset and wood fort designs meet or exceed all safety standards set forth by the American Society for Testing and Materials and the Consumer Product Safety Commission. There is not very much keeping it from flexing from end to end (imagine a kid swinging *sideways* on a swing, as kids are wont to do, and the forces that exerts on the frame) - basically just one bolt in tension on each end, which is not a very strong arrangement.
