Strong and Affordable

Prodigy Aerial have designed the PolySafe Shackle Trapeze to provide maximum strength and safety with a rope that is both flexible and comfortable to use.

The Prodigy Aerial PolySafe Rope used on this trapeze is specially designed for Aerial, super strong, and much more affordable than cotton ropes.

The shackle design means ropes and other components are inter-compatible and can be used in different configurations. This modular feature of Prodigy Aerial equipment allows for greater flexibility when rigging.

Polysafe Rope

The single-leg, similar to a traditional rope, gives you a clean presentation for use on a stage and is very comfortable to grip above an Aerial Hoop. The super-strong 2t Working Load Limit (WLL) gives you the industrial strength needed for any rigging situation.

Aerial PolySafe Rope has a polyester webbing cover that is super hard-wearing, abrasion resistant but also soft and comfortable to grip. It has a very comfortable almost elastic feel in hand and is not as chunky to grab as a round sling/strop.

Prodigy Shackles

The Prodigy PolySafe Ropes are fixed to the trapeze bar with high-grade stainless steel (SS316), Prodigy Hex-Lock D shackles. These can be inspected, removed and replaced, and feature on other Prodigy Aerial props such as the Prodigy Multi-point Aerial Hoop.

The shackles have a low profile 6mm bar, and the hex head pin locks into place very neatly in an indentation on the shackle bar. This means it locks securely and with no protruding pin to get in the way. We recommend using a Medium Strength Threadlock on the thread of the pin to eliminate any risk of vibrations loosening the pin.

There is no compromise on safety with a WLL of 300KG (FOS 5:1) on these shackles.

- Less comfortable at the elbows compared to a classic style trapeze.
- Small fingers have the potential to get caught in the shackle area.
- Harder to dress than a classic style trapeze
- If you're used to a classic trapeze, it may take time to get used to the increased mobility.

UK Made, Tested and Certified

Load tests are performed regularly on all equipment at independent certified testing facilities.

  • Working Load Limit (WLL) : 200kg
  • Factor Of Safety (FOS) : 5:1

Destructive testing is undertaken at regular intervals or when any component is modified. Working load limits are based on permanent deformation.

Never exceed the manufacturer's WLL.

Single Point Rigging

Also known as a dance trapeze, these are rigged into one single point at the top, creating a triangle shape with the ropes.

It is important to use a rigging plate or delta link in this situation to avoid tri-loading a carabiner. You may also want to use a swivel in this setup.

Double Point Rigging

The most common way to rig a trapeze. This method keeps both rope separate and leaves ample space for moves above the bar.

If you have a freestanding rig, you can attach the supplied carabiners to a strop or loop and choke these around the top bar of the rig.

If you only have one anchor point to rig from, the aerial spreader bar has got you covered! Simply attach your two carabiners to the provides holes either side of the bar.

Based on 4 reviews

These are literally the best trapeze upgrade ever. For someone who is used to stropping hoops at different lengths, these really do convert that over to trapeze, and at a much more reasonable price than a basic trapeze.

These are trapeze for the modern aerialist.

Fantastic idea!

Coming from an aerial hoop background... I have found no issue converting over to working on Trapeze... it feels really similar to what I'm used to. Also being able to buy a system where strop lengths can be changed over is genius.

great equipment

the equipment has a lot of use and won't break after multiple years


I'm very picky but it's great for me i have lots of fun
