Using advices

  • Unlock (unscrew) the ring of the screw carabiners before unset your slackline to avoid blocking the mechanism induced by the deformation under tension.
  • Useful to connect slings to the slackline and for Primitiv Kits
  • Use it only in the right direction - never sideways
    • Triloading : Avoid to use it when your sling is connected round a big tree. If you still do it, it will affect the resistance of the carabiner due to a triload force which can lead to the break of the carabiner.

Incompatibilities

  • DO NOT USE IN CLIMBING ONCE IT AS USE IN SLACKLINE - this PETZL carabiner is Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) approved ONLY if used under normal conditions : climbing.
    But once used in slackline, it is imperative that you do not use it in climbing.
    - The slackline material is ONLY used for slacklining -
  • Trickline / Jumpline forbidden - Use shackles instead
    NEVER USE ALUMINUM MATERIALS. It can break due to cycling failure.

  • Triloading

Responsibility

Slacklining and more particularly Highline (in the void, secured by a harness) are sports practices that have no normative or regulatory framework for the manufacture of the material as well as for its installation.

This is why we do not guarantee our own equipment for highline use.
Our products are tested within our company and independent laboratories (mentioned on the product page) via a process that evolves with practice.

These resistance tests have no legal value, they aim to ensure the safety, resistance and comfort of use of our equipment - in the context of our practice.

It is the responsibility of the practitioner to choose the equipment with the appropriate resistance and to have the necessary experience to adapt the installation to his practice.
And to use appropriate equipment to secure oneself if necessary, such as PPE equipment (climbing gear, ropes, etc.).

Generalities

  • Do not install your slackline across a path, trail or place of passage
  • Do not install your slackline more than 2m from the ground without securing yourself with PPE equipment
  • Practice on grassy or cushioned ground free of any protruding objects or objects that could cause injury
  • Do a back up = secure your tension system
  • Never use a ratchet for highline practice
  • Never install your slackline on urban furniture (benches, lampposts, barriers, etc.)


Safety regarding highlining

It is the responsibility of the practitioner to use appropriate equipment to secure oneself if necessary, such as PPE (climbing equipment, ropes, etc.).

In NO CASE is slackline equipment designed to secure itself. For the lifeline - called backup - we advise to use only PPE standard material (climbing material, ropes, etc).
Unless expressly mentioned, no slackline element can be considered as PPE (personal protective equipment) for sports and leisure activities

NEVER USE SLACKLINE MATERIAL TO SECURE YOURSELF / TIE YOURSELF DOWN. IT IS NOT CLIMBING EQUIPMENT, NOR IS IT EPI STANDARD EQUIPMENT.
