The line grip of a new generation
The brand new MOUSE GRIP is a strong, ultralight and the smaller alternative to a standard LineGrip.
Easily attached to your harness, this extra gear does not slow you down. Due to its two coloured plates, the assembly on any polyester or nylon slackline webbing becomes evidently to handle.
A MOUSE GRIP for its small size
A very important feature to achieve in our development process was the MOUSE GRIPS' compact and small size. You can keep the MOUSE GRIP all day clipped to your harness and you won't even feel it with its light weight of 105 g.
This new gripping device is not only suitable to tension small slackline set-ups, it can perfectly be used to tension up to 7 kN like in longer longlines and highlines.
MOUSE GRIP DIMENSIONS: L 7 cm - H 2,5 cm - W 4 cm
Tensioning with pure simplicity
There are a few different ways to use the MOUSE GRIP as your gripping device in a tensioning system. We recommend using one of these two most known techniques:
A) Without a real Pulley System:
The most commonly used and fastest method to add tension to your set-up, is by so called "soft-pointing" the webbing with a device like the MOUSE GRIP and to pull tension with the help of some hands, or even alone, by creating a 3:1 ratio of your natural strength.
3:1 BUCKINGHAM system, in combination with a ROLLEX
After connecting your webbing into your weblock, pull through a maximum of slack to create already a min. of tension:
- Place the MOUSE GRIP min. 1m away from your weblock and clipp a ROLLEX into the sling of the device.
- Take the loose tail of the webbing, which is exiting the weblock, and clip it into the ROLLEX.
- The tail coming now out from your ROLLEX is the tail to pull on and to create tension (try pulling in the same axis as the webbing you are tensioning, to have the most efficient system).
By tensioning using this technique, the slackline is ravelling itself into the weblock during the active pulling part. Keep always an eye on an untwisted, smooth entry of the webbing l
!Don't forget your weblock Anti-Slip!
B) With a Rope Pulley System:
Instead of attaching your webbing immediately into the weblock/linelock at the tensioning side:
- Attach your Pulley System safely;
- Grip the MOUSE GRIP at the end of your webbing and attach it directly to your pulley system, using a safe connector and the sling of the device;
- Engage your pulley system several times, by releasing tension in the sling and pushing out the MOUSE GRIP further away from your anchor;
- Once you reach the desired tension, block the tale coming out behind the MOUSE GRIP into the prepared weblock at your desired anchor;
- Pull in as much slack as possible, then remove the tensioning system and the MOUSE GRIP and let the weblock take all the tension created.
! Don't forget your weblock Anti-Slip !
Check some examples of our Pulley Systems to work with the MOUSE GRIP.
Which is the best MOUSE GRIP connector?
You can choose between 2 recommended options to connect the MOUSE GRIP with a pulley system:
D SHACKLES STAINLESS STEEL: small and resistant;
TWISTED SHACKLES STAINLESS STEEL: for horizontally working pulley systems.
Stronger than a MOUSES' GRIP - in the right condition!
We have tested thoroughly the best rubber, glue and webbing combination to assure a maximum of grip and strength ratio.
But, in order to assure best performances between -10° and +40° and certainly the best grip, keep the MOUSE GRIP out of direct sun and heat, especially just before usage, to avoid potential slippage on your slackline.
MOUSE GRIP is not a PPE device. Read carefully its INSTRUCTION MANUAL before use.
