lineGrip lineScale 2
An electronic bluetooth dyno / dynamometer / load cell specifically designed for measuring slackline tension up to 30kN (3 tons). The huge load eyes and 80kN breaking strength make it perfectly suited as a rigging plate / master point for highlines.
This dynamometer is a resurrection of our slackPro lineScale… fully reworked, optimized
and equipped with new technology (li-po battery, bluetooth, app, etc.).
lineScale 2 project update #4
Production STARTED on 19.1.2019
With the trustful support of the community we really made it.
Funding was successful and production is now running.
We send a sincere THANK YOU to all the backers for the 42 pre-ordered linesScales. We truly value the trust and faith you put in us by helping to crowdfund this project.
So if you were hesitating to pre-order before production start, now’s the time to strike – there’s still 6 easy-birds left!
The FB-Video gives you some indepth details demonstrated on a 3D-Printed lineScale-2 prototype.
lineScale-2 production launch!

Safety is Paramount
This device is milled out of one solid block of high-tensile aviation aluminum (LY12CZ), giving it a whopping 80kN MBS. In terms of safety this is the best deal you can get. Theres no bolts, screws, rings, pistons or joints that could possibly fail… this is the security of mind you need when leaving the scale in the highline rig while walking it!
The lineScale works by the priciple of material micro deformation: Wikipedia – Strain Gauge
A threshold load value can be set to sound an alarm when reached.
The displayed unit (kg, lb, kN) and the auto power off time can easily be selected and saved as preset by the user.
The lineScale 2, with its 80kN MBS, is perfectly suited as a bomber, generously dimensioned, nicely organized anchor master point – also known as “rigging plate” – for your highline rig.
The large omnidirectional, cross-load proof eyelets can easily accommodate 6-8 strands of 10mm rope from your equalizing anchors, which makes multi connector management an ease.
The 24-bit high definition AD-converter with dual strain gauge configuration has a resolution of 1kg with a measuring error of less than ±1% (inside the “sweet spot” area of 300kg – 1500kg / 3kN – 15kN, which is 10-50% of WLL.

An integrated Bluetooth-4 interface connects the lineScale to your smartphone for configuration, and load value reading and recording.
Apps for iOS and Android devices are included with the lineScale.

If no load change is registered for the preset shutoff interval, the device will auto power off. It was essential for us to assure, that the scale does NOT calibrate its sensors to 0 when powered on, but immediately shows the current load. This enables you to power off and on manually anytime when you need a load reading. This saves an enormous amount of power and makes your scale go for weeks without having to recharge.

The sensor scan rate (cycle rate) is 40Hz, meaning the lineScale reads and calculates the sensor load every 25ms, which makes it sensitive for fairly short peak loads. We promise to aim for the highest possible scan rate within our budget.
Any peak load shorter than 25ms may be missed by the sensors, however this is very, very unlikely for slackline use.
