The Zip Line Trolley: Explained

With so many zip line trolleys out there to choose from it helps to know a little bit more about a trolley and how it operates, this will help you decide which trolley is right for you.

The trolley that has handles is most commonly used for kids and zip lines that run over top of lakes so that they rider can easily release themselves. The green trolley without handles is made specifically for use with attachments.
