The purpose of the Bungeez Brake kit is to gradually slow down your zipline as you approach the end of the line. It comes with a brake block, 15′ of bungee cord and bag to fill with 200lbs of sand.
It is not necessary but is recommended to prevent damaging the hardware and can come in handy for younger riders.
For more info check out the Bungeez Brake Video on our videos page.

You can leave the Zipline up however over time it will rust. Wipe dry before reusing. Remove trolley if left unused for longer periods.

When choosing your zipline you need to take into account the length of the area where you want the zipline and if you have existing anchors or if you plan to install your own.
When measuring; measuring the distance between the trees/ anchor point measure the distance from tree to tree/ anchor to anchor, measure around the circumference of the tree/anchor. Remember with the exception of the “Falcon” Series each kit has a 5ft sling cable enclosed and then allow an additional 5ft at the end of the Zipline again depending on the circumference of the tree/anchor.

While mature trees are great anchors and very convenient, they are not necessary, as anchor points can be man made, just be sure that they are absolutely solid, strong & cemented into the ground.
A simple web search will find how to videos on this topic, if unsure seek professional advice.
