Welcome to ZIPLINEGEAR!
The Stop Block can be used to create a no-pass point on any zip line cable, such as dropping over a body of water, prohibiting riders from reaching the end of the cable or it can be used as an emergency backup to a brake system. The Stop Block is not intended for use as a stand alone primary brake; riders should have little to no momentum upon impact with the Stop Block.
Use as a stand alone emergency arrest device for gravity brake zip lines or as a secondary safety backup for a primary brake system. For an overview of various braking methods check out our Zip Line Braking Methods.
Note: The Stop Block is NOT intended for use as a primary braking system. Riders should have little to no momentum when coming in contact with the block. The Stop Block is designed to grip the cable whereas the Bungee Block has a broad groove to slide freely on the cable. The Bungee Brake Block and the Stop Block are not interchangeable.
