The Tail Gate was first introduced by Basic Research (now known as Apex BASE) in the mid 1990’s. Today, all BASE manufacturers use the Tail Gate to help prevent line-over malfunctions. It is a standard piece of safety gear on all BASE systems and nearly all BASE jumps, and we’re proud to have pioneered this piece of BASE technology. The small rubber bands are 3/8 inch (10mm) wide. It is recommend to cut them in half, to ~3/16 inch wide, for use on a tail gate.
The Apex BASE Tail Gate Kit includes 2 Tail Gates (anti-line over device), assorted rubber bands, and an Apex BASE pull-up cord.
