The second most question that we recieve is: Is your PRO pulley system compatible to a LineGrip? How can other gears be connected to your system? We want to show you the simplest option:
raed PRO pulley system connected to a LineGrip with a stainless omega shackle.
The PRO pulley system has an outer width of 24mm which makes it compatible to stainless omega shackles. This shackle can be used to attach anything you like. A LineGrip, a different weblock, whatever you can imagine.
Of course there are many more options of connection.
Way 2: use a soft shackle around the attached weblock diverter to attach your linegrip. Quick n dirty...
Way 3: you could attach 8mm express slings to the screw of the pulley system to create a new anchor point.
We are sure there are more options to connect gear to our PRO pulley system. So be creative but be safe. And keep the balance!
Slackline gear becomes dirty over time. That's no big deal, you can easily clean it in your washing machine or bath tub. This helps to keep your gear shiny and reduces wear over time. Here's how to do it:
* Put your webbing or rope into a pillow case or a net bag before putting it into the washing machine. This reduces tangling to nearly zero.
* There are detergents for synthetic fibres like sports clothes available in drugstores. These are very good for washing webbing and ropes, because your gear is made from the same fibres (polyamid/polyester). There are also special rope detergents available in outdoor stores.
* Use low temperature programs like the hand wash program or the wool program. These are very careful to sensitive textiles, so they are best for your gear too. Max water temperature: 30°C. Please make sure that your washing machine can handle the load of your gear - clean it by hand in a bathtub if your machine can't handle the load.
* Most washing machines have an extra rinse program, it's worth using it after washing, to completely wash out all detergents. If you wash by hand, make sure to rinse well after washing too.
* Don't spin dry or tumble dry your gear. For drying it's recommended to hang it in smaller loops, like shown in the picture:
* You're done. Now take your gear, get out and rock some lines. Keep the balance :)
