Complete zip line braking system. Available in various sizes.
Our preferred zip line braking method is the Bungee Brake. The Bungee brake works with a mounted block on the zip line cable which is attached by a bungee cord and achored to a nearby, adjacent anchor. It absorbs the impact of the trolley before the end of the line and the bungee cord stretches and slows the zip line trolley to a stop.

It goes without saying that we recommend the Bungee Brake kit for use in stopping your backyard zip line. Bungee brakes allow you to maintain speed until the end of your ride, whereas gravity brakes slow down rides and make them less exciting. The Bungee Brake is the foolproof option in stopping any rider, especially young kids.

The bungee break worked well for a few months. We only had weights of 100 lbs or less each time for personal backyard use with kids. We noticed the bungee cord that was tied around the tree for extra enforcement had become dangerously frayed one day.. that could have been bad.

I've had this break system for 5 years. It stays up year round and has worked very well. Mine has not frayed at all.

The bungee frayed after one year and less than a dozen runs. Best way to stop.. just need to get another bungee.. Wish I didn't have to buy the whole thing.
