You Ask, We Answer: What is Proper QUICKjump Rider Procedure?
QUICKjump Free Fall devices offer a unique and thrilling experience for those brave enough to take the leap.  Before they take the leap, there are jump procedures that should be followed.

Operators must be anchored to the platform at all times, and riders must be anchored to the platform and connected to QUICKjump until they are ready to descend.

Visually inspect the webbing line, carabiner, and device to ensure everything is in proper working order.  Never use the device if the line has not fully retracted.

Double check that the harness is correctly fitted and that the rider is clipped in correctly. Ensure the carabiner is attached to a designated manufacturer approved connection point. The carabiner gate should be fully closed and locked. If in use, the optional secondary attachment point should be slack when attached, should not be loaded during normal operations, and the carabiner should be opposite and opposed to the primary carabiner.

Check that the landing area is clear and remove the anchor connected to the platform.  Remind participants to hold on to the lower portion of the OPA jacket and to take one big step off the platform – they should not jump – and to descend feet first only.

The rider may jump when ready!

Once the participant has landed, unclip the carabiner and allow the device to take up slack, creating tension before releasing the webbing.
