Versatile Applications

Cone Mount

- Skipper was designed to fit snugly on a wide variety of traffic cones, saving time, storeage space and money
- For best results we strongly recommend our Euro Cone
- You can use standard cones however you must double or triple stack standard weight cones to get to the correct weight / wall strength
- For additional security the Skipper can be screwed to the wall of the Euro Cone

Wall Mount Bracket

- Save on cones when you mount Skipper to a wall or truck
- Use the wall mount bracket when you need to constantly block off an area such as a loading dock
- Also great for utility companies. Attach a wall mount bracket to a truck and extend the belt another cone or wall mount bracket; a receiving end on another truck, a cone mount receiving end, a tree, street sign, etc.

Mountable Receiving End

- Attach this receiving end to a wall, truck, shelves, etc. for an economical way to end a line
- Available with a magnetic mount for temporary applications

Cone Mount Receiving End

- When mountable receiving ends aren't an option and there's nothing for you to wrap the belt around, the Cone Mount Receiving End is the cost effective alternative to end a line instead of purchasing another Skipper
- Use multiple unts to make your line go around turns using only 1 Skipper
- One Skipper with Two Cone Receiving Ends can form a 5' x 24' barrier

Wrap Around Pole

- Skipper was designed to be extremely flexible
- You only need to use one Skipper unit to mark off about 29' if you have a tree, street sign, storage rack, pole, etc. in reach
- Wrap the belt around the vertical object and slide the belt end's "hook" onto the extended belt.
