Aerial Silks Equipment for Rigging at Home

00:00:00,770 –> 00:00:04,410
hey guys so today I’m going to show you

2
00:00:04,410 –> 00:00:08,970
the hardware needed for at-home rigging

3
00:00:08,970 –> 00:00:13,080
for aerial silks I recently decided that

4
00:00:13,080 –> 00:00:18,270
I wanted to play inside my own house so

5
00:00:18,270 –> 00:00:23,970
I bought these online the first thing

6
00:00:23,970 –> 00:00:28,580
I’m going to talk about is the anchor or

7
00:00:28,580 –> 00:00:31,949
the mount bracket needed so I bought

8
00:00:31,949 –> 00:00:36,510
this one from a company called Zen

9
00:00:36,510 –> 00:00:42,960
junkie and you basically just mount it

10
00:00:42,960 –> 00:00:47,969
directly into a ceiling joist I’m going

11
00:00:47,969 –> 00:00:51,719
to do it in my garage and there’s some

12
00:00:51,719 –> 00:00:54,570
drywall up on the ceiling in my garage

13
00:00:54,570 –> 00:00:57,719
so I’m going to have to cut out the

14
00:00:57,719 –> 00:01:01,020
drywall in the shape of this mounting

15
00:01:01,020 –> 00:01:04,920
bracket so I can directly access the

16
00:01:04,920 –> 00:01:10,680
stud through the holes but it should be

17
00:01:10,680 –> 00:01:12,990
pretty sturdy well from what I’ve read

18
00:01:12,990 –> 00:01:18,030
on the reviews it has like a 4.5 star

19
00:01:18,030 –> 00:01:22,860
rating and it doesn’t have like a

20
00:01:22,860 –> 00:01:27,840
specific weight limit that was disclosed

21
00:01:27,840 –> 00:01:33,479
but just reading the reviews people have

22
00:01:33,479 –> 00:01:35,700
said that they weigh like over 200

23
00:01:35,700 –> 00:01:38,520
pounds and they’re they’re hanging from

24
00:01:38,520 –> 00:01:41,729
this thing so you know I I don’t weigh

25
00:01:41,729 –> 00:01:46,579
nearly as much as that so I am pretty

26
00:01:46,579 –> 00:01:50,430
pretty confident that that should

27
00:01:50,430 –> 00:01:53,990
support me pretty good and these are the

28
00:01:53,990 –> 00:01:56,460
these are the screws that come with it

29
00:01:56,460 –> 00:02:00,420
there I believe I see

30
00:02:00,420 –> 00:02:08,729
they are 3/8 inch wood stud lag bolts so

31
00:02:08,729 –> 00:02:12,959
those will be what are keeping me off

32
00:02:12,959 –> 00:02:18,270
the ground the next thing is the

33
00:02:18,270 –> 00:02:20,580
carabiners so I actually had these

34
00:02:20,580 –> 00:02:25,709
carabiners already me and my husband we

35
00:02:25,709 –> 00:02:29,100
left her rock climb so we had these just

36
00:02:29,100 –> 00:02:33,390
sitting around and if you notice they

37
00:02:33,390 –> 00:02:39,290
are screw gate carabiners which means

38
00:02:39,290 –> 00:02:44,370
you can twist the gate so that so that

39
00:02:44,370 –> 00:02:48,780
they don’t come unlocked while you’re

40
00:02:48,780 –> 00:02:53,190
you know climbing or on your silks or

41
00:02:53,190 –> 00:02:57,120
whatever so I have two of those and I’ll

42
00:02:57,120 –> 00:02:59,459
show you how to configure all of these

43
00:02:59,459 –> 00:03:02,970
pieces together in a second but and then

44
00:03:02,970 –> 00:03:07,380
we have the friction device which is

45
00:03:07,380 –> 00:03:11,609
also called a descender or rescue eight

46
00:03:11,609 –> 00:03:15,060
and this is specifically the piece that

47
00:03:15,060 –> 00:03:22,709
you will tie your silks onto and so this

48
00:03:22,709 –> 00:03:24,359
particular one is called the fusion

49
00:03:24,359 –> 00:03:29,010
titan terminal eight descender and I

50
00:03:29,010 –> 00:03:31,680
also bought that on Amazon based on

51
00:03:31,680 –> 00:03:36,030
their reviews don’t know what else to

52
00:03:36,030 –> 00:03:38,160
say about that but the last piece here

53
00:03:38,160 –> 00:03:46,250
is the swivel and this one is a aluminum

54
00:03:46,250 –> 00:03:49,980
apparently but the reason why I bought

55
00:03:49,980 –> 00:03:52,140
this one in particular is because it

56
00:03:52,140 –> 00:03:54,620
said it had a thousand pound weight load

57
00:03:54,620 –> 00:03:58,350
which you know I don’t need nearly as

58
00:03:58,350 –> 00:04:02,389
much as that but

59
00:04:03,180 –> 00:04:05,569
I guess it’s just an extra layer of

60
00:04:05,569 –> 00:04:10,469
peace of mind so yeah there you have it

61
00:04:10,469 –> 00:04:16,440
oh so now I’ll show you how to configure

62
00:04:16,440 –> 00:04:23,520
these in order so the ceiling mount will

63
00:04:23,520 –> 00:04:27,240
go obviously the first thing on the

64
00:04:27,240 –> 00:04:30,680
ceiling and then you’ll want to hook a

65
00:04:30,680 –> 00:04:33,960
carabiner to that directly so right here

66
00:04:33,960 –> 00:04:37,050
you’ll hook the carabiner and then onto

67
00:04:37,050 –> 00:04:40,580
that carabiner you’ll hook the swivel

68
00:04:40,580 –> 00:04:45,150
and then you’ll hook the second

69
00:04:45,150 –> 00:04:48,139
carabiner to the bottom of the swivel

70
00:04:48,139 –> 00:04:56,310
and then finally you’ll hook your

71
00:04:56,310 –> 00:04:59,940
friction device whether it be to sender

72
00:04:59,940 –> 00:05:02,820
or rescue eight and then that’s where

73
00:05:02,820 –> 00:05:06,419
you’ll your silks will hang and you’ll

74
00:05:06,419 –> 00:05:08,699
be down there somewhere doing whatever

75
00:05:08,699 –> 00:00:00,000
you do on silks
