✓ Designed to wear in, not to wear out!
✓ We use the same high quality wire and pulleys that we use for our commercial grade zip-lines
✓ We use 10mm galvanised wire rope this has a minimum breaking strain of nearly 7 tons
✓ Our quality control systems are robust and safety is always paramount, we test the systems we design on our destructive testing facility.
✓ Our boxes are brown, but the contents are galvanised!. All of the quality is found inside the box not in glossy expensive packaging.

The Fox in a box is intended as a low level zip-line kit.

The “Fox In A Box” Zip-Line kit is not for use with harnesses.
If you want a zip line with harnesses, you should have it designed and installed by an expert. Owners and operators of these types of zip line have additional obligations in terms of inspection, engineering, safety and emergency plans, rescue procedures, etc.

Choosing your "Fox in a Box" is quite simple, and we're here to help.

Step 1

Plan your FOX IN A BOX installation

The Fox in A Box Kit is very versatile, the kit can be installed in three different ways, the difference is mainly in where you stop and how you get off.

    The 3 types:

  • Play: “Zip – Stop – Roll back to middle” 
    90% of the kits we sell, use a pommel “disc” seat, these are great, even for kids as young as 3, as the pommel seat is easy to hang onto. the user hops onto the seat, then zooms off down the wire, they bump the stopper at the finish, then roll back to the middle to get off.
  • Tour: “Zip – Stop at End” 
    Sometimes someone will want to use a zipline as an exit from a treehouse, or to transport across river. 
  • Splashdown: ” Zip- Drop into water” 
    And occasionally we are asked if it is possible to  “drop off and land in water”. 

To help you to choose which type is right for you, and to plan your perfect Fox in a Box we have prepared an in depth design guide in 3 parts.
