Installing the ZipStop Reduction Line

Fitting Reduction Line

Only use a Double Figure-of-Eight knot or approved termination system for all rope connections.

Ensure that the Reduction Line is routed cleanly and in line through the pulley system, Contact between Reduction Line and any surface other than the pulley sheaves must be prevented in order to eliminate abrasion and undue wear. Attachment of the Reduction Line will differ depending on the Reduction Ratio utilized for each zipSTOP installation.

The length of the Reduction Line must be sufficient to reach between terminations with a single, continuous line.

Reduction Ratio

Ensure the Type I pulley is securely fitted to the Secondary Anchor Point and is located higher than the adjacent zip line, and in line with the start of the Arrest Zone.
