DIY Zip Wire Brake System

DIY Zip Wire Brake System
A budget way to make a braking system for your zip wire with minimal cost. You will need the following items.
  • A small used car tyre (not included) - normally freely available from most tyre dealers.
  • 3 Wire rope clamps (included).

1. You will need to drill two 6mm holes through the tyre on a horizontal axis.
2. Thread the zip wire cable through the holes.
3. Slide the tyre right to 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.

NB: For zip rides that are on a steep decline it is advised to added a second, or even third tyre before the fixed tyre.
