VLT Compact Rope Trainer Machine - MARPO KINETICS (VLT) – The VLT Compact Rope Training Machine by Marpo Kinetics is a compact, free-standing model designed to accommodate facilities with low ceiling height restrictions. In fact, the VLT was designed specifically for US Armed Forces for rope workouts in tight quarters such as ships and submarines. The VLT makes rope training accessible to all ages and fitness levels through a magnetic braking system that allows the user to engage various resistance levels ranging from just one pound all the way up to 200 pounds. Non-impact rope exercises performed on the VLT can be done while seated or standing and kneeling when the quick-release seat is removed, which also allows for wheelchair access. Train the entire body at once or isolate different muscles to mimic free weight exercises such as arm curls or tricep extensions. Excellent for cardio training, strength training, toning, increasing grip strength and even rehabilitation.

    Proper cleaning will help ensure the life of your product. The following parts should be cleaned daily: 

    Upholstery; using a solution of mild soap and water. Rope; using rubbing (medical) alcohol on a cloth wipe down the rope to remove hand oil and grease. 

    Daily Part Inspection

    Inspect the following parts daily for wear or damage: 

    Cables; inspect for wear or damage and proper tension (should not exceed 3/4" deflection). Pay close attention at bends and attachments points. 

    Hardware; inspect for looseness. Tighten as required using the proper tools. 

    Frames; inspect for wear or damage. 

    Rope; inspect for any snags, tears or fraying, cracks in the end caps or wear of the connecting chain links where the two link overlap. 

    Routine Inspection and Maintenance 

    The following maintenance should be performed approximately once a week: 

    • Visually inspect all hardware for loosening, tampering or wear. 
    • Check jam nut on all locations. 

    Once a month open the system covers and inspect:

    All gears and sprockets to make sure they have no play on the axis. For this, check each connecting screw or set screw with the proper Allen wrench or screwdriver. If a screw or set screw is found loose remove one at a time, add LocTite to the treads and tighten back in place. Check the two metal wings attached to the break mechanism and ensure they are not bending or distorting in any way. Look for signs of metal fatigue or small cracks. If any of this is observed STOP using the unit and contact Marpo Kinetics for replacement parts.

    Note: Use polishing compound (such as car wax) to clean and remove scuffs from powder-coated surfaces as necessary.

    Important Reminders 

    DO NOT use abrasive or highly alkaline cleaners on the plastic or rubber components, or on the rope.

    Never scrape plastic components with razor blades or other sharp instruments.

    Benzene, gasoline, acetone or carbon tetrachloride should never be used on the plastic or rubber components, or on the rope.

    Removal of Paint, Marking Pen, Labels 

    Butyl cellosolve works well for removal of paints and inks. Labels, stickers, and other adhesives may be removed using kerosene. When the solvent will not penetrate sticker material apply heat (hair dryer) to soften the adhesive and promote removal. Be sure to use any solvents according to directions. GASOLINE SHOULD NOT BE USED.
