Rope Adjustment & Maintenance

JUMP ROPE MEASUREMENT & ADJUSTMENT!

The tip of the handles should reach to shoulder for standard length OR to the underarm for skilled jumpers.

During jumping, the rope cord should barely skim the surface, and not slam into it. If it does, adjust further.

If the rope is for a young person who is still growing, it is best to leave a little extra cord and tie a knot or two on each side, so he/she doesn’t grow out of it right away.

TO ADJUST ROPE:
1. Stand on center of rope with one foot
2. Tip of handles should reach to top of shoulders
3. Cut of excess rope or tie knots on side for short term adjustment
