Today I bought a pair of Jump Rope. You use "a pair" to describe a Jump Rope right...?
Anyway, have decided to get one so I can skip in the free time and when I'm lazy to go for a jog, really gotta lose the extras. So, I bought it, the rope was too long, and I have to shorten it, and then I thought... it's not hard, but there may be people who don't know how to shorten it, yes, that very minority of them.
So I thought I'll take pictures of how I shorten it, and post here... I know there'll be people who think, "it's so easy, com'on!" But I just feel like doing it. So here goes~
So the one I got is a Jump Rope by Kettler, I've work in a sports equipment shop before, most jump rope handle works the same, so look at the base of the handle, you'll see a cap. remove it.
after removing the cap, you'll see the rope inside, just extend it out.
they usually have a knob thingy that "lock" the rope so it'll stop at a range/length at the hole of the handle, uh... hope you get what I mean.
for this case, you see there's two pieces of whatever you call it... the inner piece is to lock on to the rope, the outer piece is to hole the lock in place so it won't come loose.
so you remove that piece that holds the lock...
this thing. there's a sharp thing on it that kinda pierce onto the rubber rope, so you loosen it...
and pull it down further to shorten the rope length, pull it up to lengthen.
after you're done pulling, lock it with the cover.
done? slot it back into the handle.
excessive rope too long? bend it.
slot it in, and close it back with the cover.
Now you can go skip!
