In this article, you will learn how to set up the Genie II Linear on the Slingshot carriage.
Note: When using the Genie II linear you will not require the Slingshot Linear Accessory, you will not require the Slingshot Linear Accessory to mount the unit on the Slingshot, as the Genie II linear uses the capstan - rope system to drive across. Instead you will be required to swap the rope from the Slingshot Linear Accessory on to the Capstan. To avoid the inconvenience of removing and re-re-threading the Genie rope, a secondary capstan can be purchased dedicated to use on the Slingshot set up. Please click here for instructions on re threading the capstan.
