IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
Zip Lining is a Dangerous Activity
Read Before Installation & Operation
Failure by the installer or operator to heed any and all instructions, warnings, and
cautions for the correct installation, operation, care, and maintenance of the zipSTOP Zip Line Brake and associated equipment may result in serious injury or death.
The zipSTOP Brake Assembly, including zipSTOP Brake Unit Model ZB125-08B
and ZSIR150-20A, zipSTOP Brake Trolley Model ZT125-17, zipSTOP Pivot Mount,
and all associated equipment are designed and specified for use in the recreational
zip line industry as the primary brake or as an Emergency Arrest Device (EAD) in a
complete zip line braking system. Use of the zipSTOP components for any purposes other than that intended by the manufacturer is not permitted.
The zipSTOP is designed to be utilized as a primary brake or Emergency Arrest Device (EAD). When using the zipSTOP as a primary brake, the installer must utilize
an independent Emergency Arrest Device to protect against operator error and
third party equipment failure. Design and installation of the zip line, including the
complete braking system, is the responsibility of the installer or operator.
Owners and operators of zipSTOP devices are responsible for the safety and
supervision of any person using the zipSTOP and are required to assure that proper
installation and operation procedures are followed at all times. Proper installation
requires careful design and planning using zipSTOP and non- zipSTOP components.
Owners and operators are encouraged to seek the advice of their zip line installer or
a qualified engineering professional regarding the instructions in this manual.
These instructions must be made readily available to the operator at all times.
Prior to installation and use, all owners, installers, and operators must have
read and shown to have understood all instructions, labels, markings, and safety
information pertaining to the installation, operation, care, and maintenance of the
zipSTOP system, its component parts, and all associated hardware. Failure to do so
may result in equipment damage, serious injury, and death.
WARNING
Failure by the operator to heed all instructions, warnings and cautions for installation
and use of the Brake Trolley Catch Accessory and all associated equipment can result
in serious injury and/or death.

DESCRIPTION
The zipSTOP Pivot Mount is an accessory used to expand the mounting possibilities of the zipSTOP and zipSTOP IR Zip Line Braking Devices. Proper use of the
zipSTOP Pivot Mount will allow for smooth braking, reduced wear on the webbing, improved retraction, and simplified installation. The zipSTOP Pivot Mount is
designed to be used directly overhead and in line with the zip line. The installation
point should be directly above the point where braking is to begin. Please reference the zipSTOP/zipSTOP IR Operator Manual for full specifications, including
braking distances and appropriate mounting height.
The zipSTOP Pivot Mount is NOT designed or intended for use with any other
device. The zipSTOP Pivot Mount has been specifically engineered for safe use
with only the zipSTOP line of devices. Both zipSTOP and zipSTOP IR Zip Line
Braking devices can utilize the Pivot Mount, but the Pivot Mount must be used
without any external reduction (i.e. in a 1:1 reduction line configuration only).
Please reference the zipSTOP Operator Manual for arrival speeds, rider weight,
and full specifications when determining mounting location. Installation of the
zipSTOP Pivot Mount with the wrong device may result in improper operation
and potentially hazardous or dangerous braking conditions. Operation MUST
meet the operational and safety guidelines set forth in the Operator’s Manual.
Operators should double check and verify the safety limits set forth in the
Operator Manual and conduct weight testing before live operation.

COMPOSITION
The zipSTOP Pivot Mount is a mounting accessory for the zipSTOP and zipSTOP
IR devices only. The zipSTOP Pivot Mount is NOT COMPATIBLE with the QUICKjump Free Fall device, TRUBLUE Auto Belay, or any device other than the zipSTOP
Zip Line Brake Devices. The zipSTOP Pivot Mount consists of two aluminum
plates – one on either side of the zipSTOP central plate. The aluminum plates are
secured by two through bolts as shown in the figure below. The third bolt serves
as the pivot point and connection location for the quick link which is mounted at
the top and between the aluminum plates.

MOUNTING
The zipSTOP Pivot Mount is designed to be attached via the designated mounting point and quick link only. A secondary, longer, non-loaded tether should be
connected to the exposed handle as a backup connection. Ensure the mounting
hardware is secure and the unit is free to pivot, unrestricted, in the appropriate
direction.
USE ONLY THE DESIGNATED MOUNTING POINT
Use only the correct, designated mounting point. Use of incorrect points can
result in equipment damage. Ensure all mounting hardware is secure but free
to pivot in the mounting point.
All anchor points and connectors used must conform to any applicable federal, state, or local requirements for such devices.
The primary anchor point strength, connectors, redirection line, and other
hardware and accessories must conform to all requirements set forth in the
zipSTOP/zipSTOP IR Operator Manual.

PERFORMANCE
Use zipSTOP Braking Distance charts in the zipSTOP Operator’s Manual and the
diagram below to determine braking distances and performance. Due to the direct
connection between the unit and the brake trolley in the zipSTOP Pivot Mount
setup, the braking distances may be shorter than in the zipSTOP Braking Distance
charts. Use the zipSTOP Braking Distance charts only as a starting point for tuning
performance and braking distance as external and installation factors can change
performance.

INSPECTION
Safety Precautions
Prior to installation and operation of the zipSTOP Pivot Mount, it should be fully
inspected.
Weekly Inspection
The following inspection should be performed weekly with regular zipSTOP Zip
Line Brake Unit Case inspection. Both inspections may take place simultaneously
but there are independent inspection elements for both products mandating both
procedures be followed.
INSPECTION PROCEDURES:
1. Inspect each side plate extensively for damage, cracks, corrosion, or signs of fatigue.
2. Inspect the quick link, upper spacer, and upper bolt for signs of wear and
corrosion. Ensure the quick link gate is tightly closed.
3. Inspect each o-ring for signs of cracking, wear, and degradation.
4. Check the center plate spacers and corresponding bolts for signs of corrosion
or degradation.
5. Ensure the cotter pins are seated firmly, the protruding end is split, and each
tail bent outward to at least 90 degrees.
The zipSTOP Pivot Mount should be removed from service and the component or
entire assembly replaced if any component demonstrates signs of damage, cracking, yielding, corrosion, or significant wear or abrasion.
WARNING
FAILURE TO CONDUCT WEEKLY INSPECTIONS AND/OR REPLACE COMPONENTS OF THE PIVOT MOUNT WHEN SIGNS OF WEAR ARE PRESENT
MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH OF A PARTICIPANT. Any
indication of the zipSTOP Pivot Mount or unit being out of specification mandates the immediate removal of the mount or device from service.
** Varying weather, use, humidity, and UV conditions can affect the expected service life of
the zipSTOP Pivot Mount, zipSTOP Zip Line Brake, and associated equipment significantly.
Service Life
The expected service life of the zipSTOP Pivot Mount is equal to that of the
unit in which it mounts to. The zipSTOP Pivot Mount has been designed for use
outside and in harsh environments with a wide range of temperature and weather
conditions. If a component is found to be damaged or worn during inspection,
replacement parts are available from Head Rush Technologies and Authorized
Service Centers.
