"In addition to being the founder of Historic Banning Mills in Georgia, Mike Holder operates American Adventure Park Systems, the North American distributor and developer for Vertical Trek Innovations (known as Vert Voltige overseas). The company’s QuickTrekker continuous belay consists of a lightweight, 200-gram hook that slides onto the line, and cross plates that enable left/right passages on platforms as well as bifurcations and hook evacuations. The lack of mechanical elements prevents accidental unlocking and reduces maintenance on the system—there are no trolleys to change or repair—and the system imposes no limits on the length of zip line elements. The QuickTrekker can also be retrofit to most existing belay cables.  

As a park operator, Holder appreciates the peace of mind that a continuous belay provides. With a static belay, he says, “I was constantly worried about all the transferring going on all the time with claws and the like. Now I do not.”

He says that continuous belays remain a new concept for many operators. “A lot of people don’t know that there is a system out there that can make their entire park a continuous belay,” he says. “They don’t realize this technology can be installed at quite a nice cost savings compared to some other systems out there.” "
