INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (CONTINUED) PLEASE NOTE: Observing the following statements and warnings reduces the likelihood of serious or fatal injury. 1. Determine the height you will need to install the zipline. To determine the height of the starting point of the zipline, measure the height of the user. 1B. CABLE HEIGHT: For The Total Z70 to operate properly and safely, it is necessary to follow the mounting instructions carefully and observe the height recommendations. One end of the cable must be mounted at a lower level than the other end and depending upon the height of the user and the distance between the trees or uprights, these levels can be easily determined as follows: A. Measure the height of the user. If there is more than one user, and less than 6 inches in difference between their heights, then for this purpose use the height of the tallest user. If heights of the users differ by more than 6 inches, it is recommended that the height of the cable be adjusted to accommodate a user whose height is outside the range and that user not be permitted to ride until adjustment is made. Add 2 1/2 feet to the height of the user determined and mark this point on the upright intended to be the end point of the ride (i.e., if the user is 5’ 2” tall or 62 inches, then 62 plus 2 1/2 feet or 30 inches equals 92 inches or 7’ 8”). SEE TABLE. B. Measure the distance between the uprights. For the full 70 feet, add 2 1/2 feet (30”) to the height of the mark made on the end point upright and mark this point on the upright intended to be the starting point of the ride (i.e., 96” + 30” = 122” or 10’ 2”). For each 10 feet less distance between the uprights, reduce the add-on to the starting point by 6 inches (i.e. 60’ distance equals 2’ or 24” of add on at starting point). SEE TABLE. USER HEIGHT LOW END CABLE HEIGHT HIGH END CABLE HEIGHT AT DISTANCE BETWEEN UPRIGHTS 70 FEET 60 FEET 50 FEET 40 FEET 48” 78” 108“ 102” 96” 90” 54” 84” 114” 108” 102” 96” 60” 90” 120” 114” 108” 102” 66” 96” 126” 120” 114” 108” 72” 102” 132” 126” 120” 114” WARNING! Do not add additional slope to the cable. This will not improve the ride and may create a danger to the user! 2. Once you have marked your heights, carefully uncoil galvanized aircraft cable (D). 3. Install the braking system on the terminating end of the cable by inserting the aircraft cable through the end of the spring with the brake stop that is pre-attached until it is sticking out of the other end of the spring. 4. Thread the cable through the second brake stop and push the brake stop until it is completely inserted inside the spring. This end of the cable will be the terminating end of the zipline. 6
INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (CONTINUED) PLEASE NOTE: Observing the following statements and warnings reduces the likelihood of serious or fatal injury. 5. Install the trolley by threading the cable on the opposite end of the braking system through the trolley just below the wheels until it sticks out the opposite end of the trolley. 6. After installing the trolley, you will need to thread the cable through one of the tree protectors until it comes through on the other end. 7. Once you have done this, wrap the cable with the tree protector around the starting point at the height marked earlier. Make sure that the tree protector is touching the tree! 8. Using three (3) of the cable clamps (B) provided with lockwashers and nuts, secure the cable at the starting point (high end) as illustrated below. Tighten the nuts carefully with a socket wrench and push the tread caps (F) over the exposed threads. 7 INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (CONTINUED) PLEASE NOTE: Observing the following statements and warnings reduces the likelihood of serious or fatal injury. A. Attach the first clamp so the U-bolt is one clamp base width from the dead end of the wire rope. A B. Tighten U-bolt nuts evenly on first clamp. Attach second clamp no closer to the tree/upright than 1 1/2 times the diameter of the tree/upright. C. Attach the third clamp evenly between the first two clamps. Now tighten all nuts evenly. Re-tighten all nuts after the first ride. DISTANCE NOTE: Do not place the first cable clamp closest to the tree/ upright any nearer than 1 1/2 times the diameter of the tree/upright. WARNING: OVERTIGHTENING THE NUTS ON THE CLAMPS MAY DAMAGE THE WIRE ROPE AND CREATE A SERIOUS HAZARD. The cable should not “choke” the tree. The cable should make a “V” shape as it comes off the tree. B C 9. Once the starting point is secured with clamps, you will move to the terminating point. Using a hammer, fit the Thimble (G) to the eyed end of the Turnbuckle (A) as illustrated. 8 INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (CONTINUED) PLEASE NOTE: Observing the following statements and warnings reduces the likelihood of serious or fatal injury. 10. Install the second tree protector around the cable sling. To do this, you will need to take a length of rope (approximately 5 ft) and fold it in half. Take the folded end of the rope and insert it into one end of the galvanized aircraft cable sling (C). Thread the loose end of the rope through the folded end of the rope to create a Lark’s Head Knot on the cable. 11. Feed the loose ends of the rope through the tree protector until they stick out the end. Then pull firmly to get Cable Sling inside the tree protector. One looped end of the Cable Sling should be on each end of the tree protector. 9 INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (CONTINUED) PLEASE NOTE: Observing the following statements and warnings reduces the likelihood of serious or fatal injury. 12. Wrap the cable sling (C) provided around the other upright at the terminating point (or low end) at the height determined in step 1B and place the loops at the end of the sling over the bolt inside the jaw end of the Turnbuckle as illustrated. 13. Stretch out the cable and thread the loose end through the eye end of the Turnbuckle and around the Thimble. Make sure that the Turnbuckle is in the fully opened position with only the ends of the bolts inside the frame. The majority of the bolts should be outside of the frame. 14. Place one of the remaining cable clamps (B) on the cable as if to secure this end (as illustrated), and hand tighten the nuts. Using pliers or vice grips, grip the free end of the cable and pull as tightly as possible. Slide the cable clamp toward the Turnbuckle to secure and pull as tightly as possible again. Repeat the process until you feel that you have pulled the cable as tightly as possible. Tighten the nuts on the cable carefully with a socket wrench and fully secure the cable with the other two cable clamps. 10 INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (CONTINUED) PLEASE NOTE: Observing the following statements and warnings reduces the likelihood of serious or fatal injury. 15. Depending upon the length of your Zipline, you may now have extra cable. This excess should be removed. Wrap both protruding cable ends with electrical tape to cover sharp or pointed edges. Using a wire cutter or pliers, remove any excess wire protruding beyond 6 inches from the last cable clamp. 16. Tighten the Turnbuckle by turning the frame while holding the ends. This will increase the tension in the cable. Do not tighten all the way, but only until the cable appears to be a straight line. The ideal tension is approximately 200 lbs. You can test this as follows: Obtain a shopping bag with handles and place in it a 5 lb. weight such as a bag of sugar or flour. Move the trolley to the approximate center of the cable and measure the distance from the cable to the ground. Hang the bag from the handles of the trolley and re-measure the distance from the cable to the ground. At 200 lbs. tension the cable should be 4 inches closer to the ground. If this distance is more than 4 inches, then you must tighten the Turnbuckle. If the distance is less than 4 inches, you must loosen the Turnbuckle. After achieving the proper tension, tighten the locknuts on each end of the Turnbuckle tight to the frame of the Turnbuckle. 11 INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (CONTINUED) PLEASE NOTE: Observing the following statements and warnings reduces the likelihood of serious or fatal injury. 17. Grab the disc seat and open the quick link all the way by twisting the middle link and thread the quick link through the stainless steel seat attachment on the trolley. 18. Close the quick link until it cannot be tightened anymore. To lengthen the rope of the seat, place one hand on the seat and with the other hand, grab the “S” hook and move it up toward the trolley. To shorten the length of the rope, pull the “S” hook down toward the seat and pull the rope attached to the seat up. 19. While standing erect, test the connections by placing your full weight (as close to 250 lbs. as possible) on the trolley at approximately the center point of the ride. If you feel any slippage, you must adjust the tension again and tighten the cable clamps further. Repeat this process until there is no slippage. 20. Obtain a secure platform to place at the starting point of the ride. Place it at the start of the ride and make sure that it cannot tip in any direction. 21. Now test the ride. You should stop a short distance before reaching the other end. If you stop considerably short, then you probably have too much tension in the cable and should loosen the Turnbuckle slightly. If you come too close to the ground, then you may have too little tension and should tighten the Turnbuckle slightly, or you should recheck your measurements. 22. After the first use, you may expect a small amount of stretch in the cable due to its construction. This is normal and can be adjusted by following the installation instructions step 15. Your Total Z70 is now ready for use and enjoyment. 12 INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (CONTINUED) PLEASE NOTE: Observing the following statements and warnings reduces the likelihood of serious or fatal injury. PLEASE NOTE: 1. DO NOT allow the use of The Total Z70 by children without adult supervision. 2. DO NOT attach The Total Z70 to a tree or other upright without first determining if the tree or other upright, at the point of attachment, will support at least 1250 pounds. 3. ALWAYS check the support structure, attachments, trolley, cable clamps, turnbuckle, and cable for integrity before allowing the use of The Total Z70. 4. DO NOT attach The Total Z70 closer than 6 feet to any other playground equipment 5. ALWAYS use a stable platform to stand on before beginning the ride.

A fall onto a hard surface can result in serious injury to the equipment user. Grass and dirt are not considered protective surfacing because wear and environmental factors can reduce their shock absorbing effectiveness. Carpeting and thin mats are generally not adequate protective surfacing. Ground level equipment—such as a sandbox, activity wall, playhouse or other equipment that has no elevated play surface—does not need any protective surfacing. One of the most important things you can do to reduce the Poured-In-Place Surfaces or Pre-Manufactured Rubber Tiles likelihood of serious head injuries is to install shock-absorbing protective surfacing under and around your play equipment. The protective surfacing should be applied to a depth that is suitable for You may be interested in using surfacing other than loose-fill materials—like rubber tiles or poured-in-place surfaces. the equipment height in accordance with ASTM F1292. There are • Installations of these surfaces generally require a professional and different types of surfacing to choose from; whichever product you are not “do-it-yourself” projects. select, follow these guidelines: • Review surface specifications before purchasing this type of surfacing. Ask the installer/manufacturer for a report showing that the product has been tested to the following safety standard: ASTM F1292 Standard Specification for Impact Attenuation of Surfacing Materials within the Use Zone of Playground Equipment. This report should show the specific height for which the surface is intended to protect against serious head injury. This height should be equal to or greater than the fall height—vertical distance between a designated play surface (elevated surface for standing, sitting, or climbing) and the protective surfacing below—of your play equipment. Placement Proper placement and maintenance of protective surfacing is Loose-Fill Materials essential. Be sure to: • Maintain a minimum depth of 9 inches of loose-fill materials such • Extend surfacing at least 6 feet from the equipment in all directions. as wood mulch/chips, engineered wood fiber (EWF), or shredded/ recycled rubber mulch for equipment up to 8 feet high; and 9 inches of sand or pea gravel for equipment up to 5 feet high.

If maintained properly, this should be adequate. (At depths less than 6 inches, the protective material is too easily displaced or compacted.) • Use containment, such as digging out around the perimeter and/ or lining the perimeter with landscape edging. Don’t forget to account for water drainage. • Check and maintain the depth of the loose-fill surfacing material. To maintain the right amount of loose-fill materials, mark the correct level on play equipment support posts. That way you can easily see when to replenish and/or redistribute the surfacing. • Do not install loose fill surfacing over hard surfaces such as concrete or asphalt.
