All high grade cleaned well casing pipe. Maximum Air Pressure: NOT TO EXCEED 50 PSI FOR SAFETY! THIS IS NOT A TOY AND SHOULD NOT BE USED BY ANYONE OTHER THAN RESPONSIBLE ADULTS FOR THE INTENDED PURPOSE THESE WERE DESIGNED FOR! 30 psi clears any oak or walnut tree where we live in Missouri easily. Know your target area and keep people, animals, electrical wires and structures clear from launched weights! DO NOT STORE LAUNCHER FILLED WITH AIR FOR ANY REASON! Complete Kit Ready To Launch Includes. 1 Zebco 404 Heavy Duty Reel pre-spooled with 90yrds. 1 Plain lead weight, 1 Brass Swivel weight & 1 Shark Wire molded weight included with kit. 2 Heavy Duty 1/2 Zip Ties to attach Reel 1 Needed & 1 Spare. A piece of sticky foam is included to prevent the reel from slipping on the reel seat barrel. Attach it to 4 pvc section below valve.
See photo that shows how to tie weight to monofilament. 2-3 times through the weight followed with a good "fisherman's knot".
This knot will not come undone or break if tied correctly. If you don't use a fisherman's knot... #1 Close valve and fill to 30-40 psi. 50 psi is absolute maximum pressure.DO NOT EXCEED 50 psi for any reason ever! Casings are rated at 280 PSI but 40 PSI is more than enough pressure and still be completely safe! Customers have asked why do we supply a 60 PSI gauge if you can't fill it up to 60 PSI? The reason we include a 60 PSI Valve is so you can fill to the exact PSI needed and not higher! We could use a 30-40 PSI Valve and most likely you'll probably will over fill the air chamber not knowing how much air is inside. 40 PSI IS MORE THAN ENOUGH TO CLEAR THE TALLEST TREES ON YOUR PROPERTY!
PLEASE DON'T EXCEED THE MAXIMUM PSI FOR ANY REASON! IT'S NOT NEEDED TO PUT UP YOUR WIRE! #2 Securely attach weight to line (see note and photo for correct Fisherman's knot) and load in barrel until seated at valve stop. #3 Push reel button to release monofilament line, aim launcher and release valve.
#4 Wait until weight falls to ground. #5 Carefully lay launcher on ground. #6 Disconnect weight and attach your antenna pull line securely to reel monofilament line. A little tape over knot prevents any snags or knot from coming apart if not tied well. #8 Disconnect antenna rope, re-attach weight to monofilament line for storage.Do Not store launcher filled with air. #9 Attach your wire to line and pull antenna over tree. Note: Teflon tape is added at factory for any screw together joints like barrel assembly. Be sure to use Teflon tape on the threads and breakdown will be easy. Never use a wrench or pliers on the barrel or gauge.... ALSO: DO NOT set launcher up on it's end!
We use a rounded cap purposely to discourage standing the launcher up on end. If the launcher falls over you may damage the reel or possibly break the threaded barrel fitting. Carefully lay the launcher down flat when not in use while in the field. Teflon spray can be used on valves as a lubricator. We are not responsible for misuse of this product whatsoever!
Please follow the included instructions and don't push the limits of the launcher for any reason! We have spare parts available if needed, but with a little care it should last a long long time.
Keep weights stored away from children. Weights can be painted a bright color or attach a 12 piece of bright thin ribbon to help locating your weight.
Pre plan your job with height, direction, pulleys if wanted, etc. And you'll be DXing in no time.If you have tree's close together you can clear multiple tree's in one shot. Put up 2 dipoles and end up with North/South & East/West! If you have ever tried putting up dipoles using ladders, sling shots, bow's and arrows or settled for a low antenna.... This will be the best radio tool you own after the first time you use it! Safety warning: DO NOT EXCEED 40 psi FOR ANY REASON! Do not store launcher filled with air.
