The essential item when it comes to tensioning a slackline and remove the tensioning devices (pulleys/rope). Use it preferably with weblocks (banana).

What is a LineGrip ?

The line grip is a clamp for webbing - Is it useful ?
Yes, to tighten a slackline and remove the tensioning system.


Very useful to get a tensioning devices free installation. It will be 100% walkable and it will be even easier and safer to walk on.
Very useful for slackline associations, groups which will need only one tensioning system for numerous slacklines. One set up + LG = multiple lines.
You can also (if experimented enough) set up slacklines without a pulley system  thank to a multiplier system on your weblocks.

The LineGrip G5 SBR 5th Generation for 25 mm width slacklines.
The LG G5 comes with the SBR technology : spring-ball-retainer which allows the plate above to stay in place during the manipulation (auto-engaging and auto-releasing plate).

Very convenient, it will save you manipulations and time.
High friction Type-4 rubber plates guarantee the best possible grip on any webbing type.

Using advices

  • Pre-tension the slackline in the weblock (banana) during tensionning
  • To unset - think about the Lasso 25 mm / Soft release !
    Better and easier than setup again the tensionning system to finally unset the slackline
  • In case of high temperature (hot weather) or high sunny day, protect the LineGrip from the sun with the grey protection. It'll avoid slackline slippery.
  • With the Moonwalk webbing, we advice low tension (less than 5 kN) because of dyneema in the slackline - very slippery material
  • If the LineGrip slips on low tension, there are several explanations :
    • cold weather - hard rubber
    • LineGrip's rubber are used - reimplace only these pieces on LineGrip.com
    • the slackline is made of dyneema (or equivalent) or used

Incompatibilities

  • Moonwalk webbing. On this slackline, the use is not guaranteed due to it hybrid composition (50% HMPE/Polyester), it depends on too many factors : humidity, quality of the webbing (used, very used), temperatures...
  • Freestyle : jumpline/trickline
  • Don't tighten it on urban furnitures! Don't cut the way to others!

Responsability

Slacklining and particularly Highlining are sports having no legal framework or norms concerning the gear or the setup.

Consequently we cannot warranty our gear for Highlining.
Our products are tested inside of our company via a process evolving with practice.

The results of those tests have no legal values, they aim to ensure the safety and comfort of using our equipment.

It is the responsibility of the slackliner to choose the right gear with adequate resistance and to have the necessary experience to adapt his installation to his practice.

Generalities

  • Don't rig your slackline across a path, a road or any crossing
  • Don't rig your slackline higher than 2m
  • Ride on a grassy or soft ground, without roots or rocks
  • Always backup your setup
  • Never use ratchets for highlining
  • Never use urban furniture as anchor point

This equipment is absolutely not made for highlining. Find more information on our website highline.fr
