The bipod is perhaps the most versatile of the three frame configurations. It can be stood vertically like a tripod for a simple vertical lift, or it can be tilted to one side or another to move a rescued animal horizontally. It is this configuration that has received our utmost attention because of this versatility and because the forces that are encountered due to the tilting of the frame. Two support columns make up each leg. The upper one nests inside the lower one. The hole through the upper column has a sleeve that helps guide the pin when inserted. The lower column has holes drilled every 12 inches for adjustments in height, especially if on uneven ground. The holes are precision drilled and are only 1/32" larger than the pin.
The bipod head is constructed entirely of aluminum tubing for maximum strength. In addition, the tubes are machined to exactly fit to one another prior to welding. This also insures strength. The support sling is made of low stretch 10,000 pound rescue rope supporting a 1 inch steel ring that gives plenty of room for all the rigging lines as well as the lines for the load. The two top pieces are there to keep the rope aligned correctly, adding to the overall strength of the top.
Can be purchased as a "KIT" complete with all rigging.
