The budget way to make a minimal impact braking system for 8mm zip wire with minimal cost. You will need the following items.

  • A used vehicle tyre (not included) - normally freely available from most tyre dealers,try to get a tyre without the steel radial in it.
  • 3 Wire rope clamps (included).

1. You will need to drill two 8mm holes through the tyre on a horizontal axis.
2. Thread the zip wire cable through the holes.
3. Slide the tyre to approximately 4 metres ( 13 foot ) from the end of the zip ride and tighten one of the wire rope clamps in the centre of the tyre.
4. Slide the tyre back towards the trolley until the tyre meets the clamp.
5. Use the remaining two wire rope clamps next to each other, on the outer wall of the tyre furthest away from the trolley.
