The ankle harness has two components:
– Padding to provide protection to the ankles.
– Mountaineering webbing (3,000 kg working load).
The webbing is secured over the padding and around both legs just above the ankles, binding both legs firmly together.
The knot used is a self-loading knot that is impossible to either slip or come undone during the jump.
There have been over 500,000 jumps world wide using this particular ankle tie method without an incident of it slipping or coming undone.
The client is harnessed up for the jump and is safely attached at all times.
Jumpers are placed in a waist harness with a separate attachment to the bungi cord as a secondary back up and for recovery back to the bridge.
-All connections to the bungi cord are made before the platform safety line is removed.
-The Jumpers’ weight is transmitted through the ankle harness to the bungi cord, which stretches out to approximately three times the original length.
-This elongation provides a gradual deceleration of the jumper’s free-fall without placing any sudden stressful forces on the jumper.
-Clients can decide at any stage not to jump.
-At no stage is anybody forced to jump or pushed. However, after the registration process has been completed, jumps paid for are considered non refundable and non transferable.
