Zip Line Bungee Block

What it is: The zip line bungee brake consists of a block on the cable that resembles a small square block but is free to slide up and down the cable line. A bungee cord is connected between the block and anchor point (usually a tree or post) off to the side of the zip line. 

How it works: When a rider comes zipping down the zip line cable, the pulley makes contact with the block of the brake which  pushes it down the line; this in turn stretches the bungee cord, providing resistance. The brake slows the rider to a smooth stop at the end of the ride
