SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2014

Slackers Brake Kit

If you have rigged up a zipline in your backyard there is no doubt that it saw plenty of action this summer. One of the things we hear from parents with these ziplines is that after a while kids start wanting to go faster. As a parent you want to give your kids what they want but you have to make sure that they are safe. The Slackers Brake Kit, designed to work with the Slackers Zipline allows you to raise the starting height of the line, increasing the angle of the line and thus increasing the speed of the ride. This brake gives your child the ability to stop in ways other than using their feet or slamming into the tree at the other end. The other nice thing that this brake kit provides is a bit of a slingshot backwards at the end. It’s not enough to return them all the way to the starting line but maybe a third of the way which serves to increase the duration of the ride.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Report Period

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
