BACKUP KIT for slackline
The BACKUP KIT has been designed to fix the ratchet of your Slackline to an anchor. This system allows to protect the user and anyone around them in case of accidental collapse of the system.
Tie the rope to the tree and hook the other extremity to the ratchet, like this, in case of unexpected break of tape, the ratchet remains attached to the tree.
Why is it advisable to always have the BACKUP KIT?
Our BACKUP KIT is very important to guarantee safety for the use of a slackline with high tension. In the remote possibility that a component breaks, two situations might occur:
If it is a metal component to break, it could fly towards the anchor and the slackliner;
If the slackline breaks, the metal components can also fly towards the respective anchors.
The BACKUP KIT prevents the sudden release of slackline tension, and avoids the risk of accidents.
Some precautions during the installation of the BACKUP KIT
The use of this simple system requires compliance with some particular precautions:
The rope must wrap the tree completely and then be attached to the ratchet;
Apply a tight knot to the backup rope, leaving the rope loose, without tension;
During the slackline tensioning process, install the backup as soon as possible, remember that an incident can occur at any time;
Follow the installation video for more details on using the backup.
