Slacklining is one of the many alternative ways to use a ratchet strap. According to wikipedia slackening refers to the act of walking or balancing along a suspended length of flat webbing that is tensioned between two anchors such as a tree or something similar (source https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slacklining) Basically in other words Slacklining is the new less dangerous version of using a tightrope to walk across and can be used as a balancing game with friends. Now, how do you do it exactly? In order to do Slacklining there will be a few materials you will need in order to do this safely. Firstly, you are going to need some 2 inch wide webbing. The 2 inch wide webbing is the perfect sized webbing to use when going across the webbing on a tightrope.

Materials you will need.

You will combine the two anchors together by using the 1 inch wide webbing around the trees and securing it with the carabiners. Pulling the slackline till it is secure and does not have slack on the line. The final product should look something along the lines of this final outcome.
