Weblock for longlines
To set a longline you need a linelock device. The simplest way is an aluminium ring with a carabiner to lock the webbing around itself.
There are also professional devices called weblocks, with banana shape, that locks the longline with fixed and mobile pins.
A well-designed weblocker retain over 90% of longline breaking strenght. In case you would use, instead of a weblock, a simple webbing knot, the webbing breacking strenght would drop 50% off.

Weblock SR suitable for soft release
Soft point longline is called when the slackline longline only have two weblocks in the system, without the tensioning system (i.e. pulleys).
To release the tension in a long line with soft point, a SOFT RELEASE is mandatory to avoid reconnect again a pulley system with brake.
SR weblocks are designed to integrate the SOFT RELEASE directly to the weblock, without the use of auxiliary connectors in order to further reduce the weight of the system.
Stainless steel or aluminum weblocks
Weblock plates can be made of stainless steel or aluminum.
Stainless steel has excellent properties for tensile strength and excellent mechanical resistance for working with repeated stress movements even hundreds thousand of times without losing its original properties.
Aluminum is a superior legacy with lower weight than steel and achieves exceptional results in resistance to traction forces peak. Aluminum weblocks are great for those who have to carry a lot of weight to the highline mountain rigging point, where every gram saved is really important.
