The 'Ludwig' Portable aerial rig

I , LUDWIG, am retired 
I sold the ' Ludwig's '  Aerial Rig business  to Tim   of    VVolfymetalworks LLC.
Tim is a master fabricator, certified welder and has been doing my most crucial welds for me for many years.
He has been a fabricator of Lyras and many very unique and awesome apparatus as well as Dance Stilts.
I will remain in the loop with the business process and design of the aerial rigs to maintain a high quality product..

Thanks for your support and trust in me to provide a great aerial rig product.

Now you can rely on Tim to provide you with the same great aerial rig product as well as various aerial apparatus.
Thanks,  Ludwig

 Extra eyebolts,  installed

You may need extra eyebolts for using a pulley system, or to hang a climbing rope

  On order form you will be asked what locations to put the eyebolts.
Here are the locations available and the position number needed for order form

See description and photos of various Pulley System configurations



 Tie-Off cleats 
Needed for pulley systems for something to tie pulley ropes to.
Notice the HALF TWIST in rope for each wrap.
This half twist is CRITICALLY important, without it, the wraps do not hold.
The twist makes the loose end of rope come out from UNDER the loop  and the
loop is holding down on the loose end.
see video of tying:


And just for fun https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2V-RKHtBIFg

 Weather proofing
ALL  rigs now have weather proofing end-caps and hole plugs in the header.
This does not total SEAL the rig but greatly reduces the amount of rain that gets inside header.

These plugs can be retrofitted to existing rigs. $10, incl. shipping
Just send email letting me know that you want these for your older rig
 and how many hole plugs you need.
I am basically giving these away and the $10 just covers the shipping.
