Once you have set up the first anchor point, attach the Line Tensioner to the strap D-ring via the small carabiner, then attach a ratchet to the other side. If using two Line Tensioners (recommended for rope lengths over 150 feet and when accommodating two dogs or more on a 100 ft length), repeat the process for the other anchor point.
Once you have the entire line set up, pull on the rope end via the ratchet and stretch the Line Tensioner just enough to keep the line taut. If you can, allow some stretch potential to remain, which will increase the life of the bungee and also allow some stretch.
If you find you need to pull the bungee to the maximum due to the length of rope, increased rope weight due to weather, etc., we recommend using one Tensioner on each side.
Rope will absorb rain and will freeze in winter conditions, which will add weight to the line. Adjust the bungee when necessary. Extreme winter temperatures may make bungees brittle, Release the tension of the Line Tensioner when not in use. This will increase the life of the bungee.
