Health & Safety Considerations
Follow your usual operating procedures and carry out appropriate risk benefit assessments.
Some considerations particular to this activity include:
Attach one end of the long cord to one of the pulleys on the crosspiece that faces the suspension ring (1A)
Then thread the cord through the plastic roller of the other pulley (1B) and back through the first (1C).
Hang the karabiner in the suspension ring of the lower pulley (1B).
The karabiner serves to attach loads to the pulley (max 3kg). The small snap hook and the pallet (load max 0.5kg).
Fixing the pallet:
Cut two 55cm length pieces from the shorter cord. Ask an adult to heat the string with a lighter to stop the string fraying.
Attach both pieces of string in the middle of (2A) – the ring of the little karabiner.
The remaining cord can be used to suspend the upper pulley of the mini-pulley.
Lay the ends of the string through the palette as shown in pic (2B).
Knot the two strings together so the knot is underneath one of the bars of the pallet. Pull tight. (2C + 2D)
Repeat with the other string on the other side of the pallet.
Align the cords so that the pallet is hanging horizontally in the karabiner. (2E)
Then you can hang the karabiner on the lower pulley.
