Assembly a Slackline

Let us explain the assembly of a Slackline
All beginnings are difficult and so the question arises "How do I setup a Slackline in the right way and what do I need to pay particular attention to avoid any mistakes".

Slacklining is a beautiful sport, but its dangers should never be underestimated!

Assembly
The Gibbon Slackline has been specially designed for a quick and easy assembly. The slackline consists of just two compontens:

  • The band 50 mm wide Gibbon Flexband with covered strap
  • The rachtet Fixed to a 2m, 50mm wide Gibbon Flexband with covered strap
Only use the components of our Slackline-set! Only then, and in conjunction with the safety guidelines, can the product be used safely.

Anchorage
In order to avoid damage to the material, the Gibbon Slackline must only be fixed on trees, which have a minimum circumference of 1m (30cm diameter) ans a maximum circumference of 1.8m. Ensure that the trees can withstand the minimum force of 10kN (1t). When fixing the slackline to trees with a soft bark, please use a piece of carpet or a rubber mat to prevent unnecessary damage.

Anchorage of the band
Look for a suitable place and wrap the band flat around the stem at a height of approximately 50cm. Thread the band through the strap to form a noose around the stem of the tree. In order to ensure a horzontal alignment of the band, simply fold the band when treading it through the strap.

Anchorage of the ratchet
Same as with the band, look for a suitable and wrap the band attached to the rachet flat around the stem at a height of approximately 50cm. Thread the ratchet through the strap to form a noose around the stem of the tree. In order to ensure a horizontal alignment of the band when treading it through the strap. To minimise the risk of injury we advise installing the ratchet with the lever facing down.

Connecting the band to the ratchet
Release the ratchet (pull on the small lever inside the ratchet) and open the main lever. Thread the band through the slot in the axel and continue threading the band through the band connected to the ratchet and the main lever. Tension the band and using one hand hold it together with the band of the ratchet. The slackline must not exceed two and a half rotations around the axel of the ratchet. The tension on the the level of the ratchet must not exceed 400N (40k) to prevent a seizure of the system. As soon as the band is fully tensed check the ratchet to ensure that the bolt rests neatly in the cogging and bring the lever back up to a horizontal position. Feel free to further tense the band according to your personal preference.

Disassembly
Pull the small lever inside the ratchet to unlock the main lever and open it as far up by force on the lever of the lock bolt from the interaction of triggers and thus the tape is released.

Abrasion
Prevent the tape from unnecessary wear on sharp edges or rough places. When the abrasion is too high the tape should not be used.
Anyone who has tried it, already knows: Slacklining is pure feeling!
This sport is good for mind and soul
