Tensioning System Release Photos

Since this package is hard to visualize we have placed a photo description of how it works below. This is a new version that supports pulley systems as well as ratchets.

So here's how it works:

Place the slide lock on the main line prior to tensioning the system.

If you fill up the ratchet spool before you have the desired tension pull the slide lock tight as shown and release the ratchet. The slide lock will catch the tension and you can fully release the ratchet while the lock holds the line. Unwind all of the slack on the spool and get another bite. This will give you the ability to tighten the line to dangerously tight levels. Once desired tension is met, tighten it two full inches more to make up for the rocking of the lock into place and pull it tight and release the ratchet. This now works to reset the throw in a pulley based tensioning system as well.

Now you can remove the tensioning system completely from your anchors and slack.

When finished, simply undo the release hitch to slowly let the line down.
