The HAN070/071 Handle Bar is a lightweight, retrofit zip handle device, for use with our industry leading Zippey Clip'n'Zip, ZipSpeed-S and ZipSpeed-L Trolley models.
The HAN070/071 Handle Bar can be used to improve rider experience, by preventing rotation during their ride. The handle bar also allows users to arrive at the end of the zip line in a forward-facing position, ready to land on the platform.
The handle bar accessory is completely independent of the safety system that connects the rider to the trolley, thus giving an uninterrupted load path of certified zip trolley, lanyard and harness components.
Zip handle bars fall outside the regular categories for standard certification and as such, it’s not possible to obtain third-party certification for handle bars (since they do not qualify as a ‘connector’).
The solution... the HAN070/071 Handle Bar is completely independent of the connection between the rider’s harness and the zip trolley. This means that the rider can be directly connected to the zip trolley, using certified equipment only. The handle bar is present purely as an accessory item and does not interrupt the chain of certified safety components used to connect the user to the harness.
The central body of the handle bar has a curved shape, which positions the handle bars away from the main attachment assembly, keeping user's fingers clear of the lanyard and Karabiner.
The lanyard retention clip captivates the lanyard in the correct position, keeping the lanyard clear of the user’s hands and reducing the risk of the user’s hands being pinched between the lanyard and the central shaft of the handle bar.
The handle bar is available with a choice of lanyard retention clip, to suit webbing or rope lanyards.
As the Lanyard is not fitted to the handle bar, the lanyard can easily be released from the retention clip and removed from the handle bar retention clip, to allow for inspection and replacement, as necessary. To do this, simply disconnect the lanyard from the Karabiner and unthread the lanyard from the retention clip- no tools required).
