Brake Bar Black

Testing Brake Bar Black

Here we are publishing tests for Brake Bar Black – the upgraded goldtail device by Tracers specially designed for stunt rigging. It is made in two versions: with and without swivel. Both have truss attachment to fix it on the trusses. Non-swivel version has another type of gate which add even more strength.

Let’s check how strong is BBB Swivel*
* From 1st to 3rd we made changes to design, added truss attachment functionality, but the breaking strength was not changed.

MBS according to manual is 40kN.
