How to set up slacklines without trees

We did a job with Andy Lewis and this is how we set up temporary slacklines without trees. The bolts we used can be bought at and the chains I used were the cheap 400lb rated ones from my local hardware store. A great starter slackline if you like rachets is or if you want to have 1" buy this one

A more permanent slackline can be rigged without trees by building "dead man anchors", where you bury something and wrap a chain or rope around it and that becomes your anchor on either side.

Check out to learn everything you need to know about slacklining and highlining.

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
