Outdoor play has become a rare activity for many kids today. They do not engage in physical activities more than we were used to as kids. Video games, movies and the Internet made kids prefer playing indoors more that going outside to play. The result- kids who are less active and becoming overweight. Kids do need a little exercise and any regular physical activity will do. Just as long as they move about outside the home and playing with friends is good enough. If you have enough space in the backyard, having this Seated Backyard Zipline Kit installed will help keep kids engaged in some fun outdoor play.
The Seated Backyard Zipline Kit is designed for kids, especially when it comes to safety features. This backyard zipline comes with an integrated seat that allows kids to zip through the air while remaining closer to the ground. The seat also reduces the stress on the kid’s arms. The kit comes with a galvanized steel cable that can be wrapped around two trees at an incline. The seat trolley is attached to the cable with a special pulley mechanism that comes with sealed ball bearings for a smooth, fast but safe ride. For maximum safety, the trolley is also fixed with a bungee braking system that can slow or stop traveling through the zipline. The handles are padded to provide kids with a comfortable grip during the zipline ride.
The zipline cable can be set for a distance span of up to 90 feet, depending on the available space in your backyard. The rope length and seat height of the trolley is also adjustable and can hold for up to 250 lbs. to accommodate kids of different ages. The Seated Backyard Zipline Kit also comes with mounting hardware and detailed instructions on how to properly set up the backyard zipline. It is designed for kids from 8 years old and above. This zipline kit is available
Exclusively at Hammacher Schlemmer for $200.
