Health & Safety Considerations

Follow your usual operating procedures and carry out appropriate risk benefit assessments.
Some considerations particular to this activity include:

small cable tie used to create a loop in a piece of string

Assembly of the big packs:

The four strings of the big pack are formed with the help of the cable tie loops (cable ties are dangerous for children, here the adult must help) which can be hung in the load karabiner.

Make sure that all strings are the same length and fold as pictured.

Tighten the cable ties with a pair of pliers and cut off the end pieces.

All kinds of loads can be transported in the big pack.

pulley attached to rope

Attach the end stations (Befestigen der Endstationen):

Image in supplied German instructions.

The two wooden pieces are screwed to the room wall with screws (not included). Outer holes are provided for screws.

A pulley is attached to each end station by means of a knot at the upper inner hole (see images)

The rope (red) is attached to the bottom holes of the pieces of wood, this must be well tensioned so that the cable car does not sag.

Setting up the rope (Einrichten des Zugseils):

A loop is knotted at one end of the pull rope (green) (image 1).

Then the traction cable is guided through the two pulleys and the other end is tied to the loop (image 2).

The rope must be stretched very tight and if the ropeway is to be permanently installed, the rest of the line can be cut off and heat sealed (by adults: end with a lighter).

Finally, the karabiners are mounted as shown (image 3) and ready to attach the big pack to the lower karabiner.

And this is how it works:

Pulling the green cable pulls the load back and forth on the cable car.
