Equipment Warning

All clubs should ensure that their Uneven Bars are correctly set up and that the anchor points are suitable for the type and style of uneven bars being used. Notably any of the Uneven Bars with a six (6) cable set up.

Six (6) cable Uneven Bar set ups require anchor points that can take a dual force (force that pulls in two different directions) at the low bar point. If the incorrect anchor point is used and can not sustain dual forces then breakage / failure of the anchor point is possible and serious injury of an athlete or coach may occur.

It is important for clubs to have all equipment checked by professionals during installation. Clubs should demonstrate due diligence and follow equipment checking protocols.
