How to Set Up a Slackline Tutorial
BEFORE USING YOUR SLACKLINE PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ YOUR SLACKLINE MANUAL AS IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION AND GUIDELINES. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO ALL GUIDELINES, WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, INSTRUCTIONS, AND SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS. PERIODICALLY REVIEW THE INFORMATION INCLUDED IN YOUR MANUAL AND INSPECT YOUR SLACKLINE REGULARLY FOR SIGNS OF DAMAGE. DO NOT USE THE SLACKLINE UNLESS YOU ACCEPT ALL RISK OF INJURY AND/OR DEATH THAT MAY RESULT FROM YOUR USE.
DISCLAIMER: Minors should not use the slackline unless they are under continuous competent adult supervision. Make sure that the slackline is only installed in areas where minors cannot access the slackline without such adult supervision. Only adults should use the ratchet or adjust the tension of the slackline.

Slackline Setup with 1 or 2 Jumbo Ergo Ratchets (Puma Trickline or Slacklife)
Aerial Pro Setup
The advantage of setting a slackline with 2 ratchets is basically adding more tension (which is better for tricklining) and being able to pull easily on each side, instead of pulling real hard with only 1 ratchet. Also, de-tensioning the system can be easier and safer thanks to our new Soft Detensioner.
NOTE: Don’t over tension a ratchet as that may increase the risk of injuries and/or death. Try to distribute the tension equally on both ratchets. Always slackline at your own risk and take the time to inspect your gear! Slacklines are set under a lot of tension so it is important to renew your slackline kit once it starts getting in bad shape (too much fraying on the webbing, ratchet worn out, etc.)
