    Zig zag slipping

    2 years is good going. You must climb really slow or something

    Yep sounds like you’ve had your money’s worth out of it

    Not as bad as that! As above, how old is it and what is the rope? my first one start creeping slowly after about 18 months

    Rigging ropes

    Yes Samsung do bigger, my point was their roles are colour coded. Their 19mm is orange I think

    Rigging ropes

    That rope looks like a 19mm to me. I don't think stable braid comes in blue at that diameter?

    Is it 19mm? Could possibly be Yale double esterlon

    Introducing The Sure-Track MT3 Tracking Device

    I've spoken to suretrack and they have given some advice. I expect you have already followed this, but will go over it anyway Main thing is to thoroughly clean the area of grease before installation, and once applying the unit to the sticky take to make sure you hold it for at least 30 seconds to secure. Also make sure the area you are applying the sticky tape to is flat and that the whole of the tape is being used, otherwise you can run into problems. The magnet option that you have tried isn't necessarily stronger than the tape, and it appears thats not solving the option for you either. One option would be to position it so it is wedged between 2 parts. Someone with a Forst would be better placed to suggest an option here though (hence you started the thread) Is using cable ties to secure it in addition to the tape feasible?

    What's the going rate for block paving

    I assume it was including vat. I can't imagine they wouldn't be vat registered.

    Sorry to hear you are having problems Kev. I haven't had any other complaints so far so I assume there is an answer. I will get in touch with Suretrack direct although it sounds like you already have been.

    2nd quote it is then. That’s what I needed to know, thanks

    What's the going rate for block paving

    Not after a budget job, although by the sounds of it my quote is on the higher side of things after all. £1430 was his quote for that area

    What's the going rate for block paving

    Did that include excavation, type one, curbing, removal of spoil etc?
