(1) Objectives Due to the frequent faulty being found and the increasing price of the current safety system, the High Ropes Course Altenhof has been starting to invent its very own carabiner, ―Clip – Monkey‖. The Bornack - Permanent Securing System SAFE-link SSB has provided a conceptual idea on the development of ―Clip – Monkey‖. This report’s primary aim was to investigate the design and material that was the most appropriate for developing the ―Clip – Monkey‖ with a secondary aim to explore a diversified marketing strategy to promote the newly designed carabiner. (2) Methods A pre-robust test and a quantitative measure were conducted. There were two points from the carabiner were being stretched to conduct if the prototype were able to carry a designated amount of force. Moreover, a total of 256 high ropes course official webpages were being read through to search for the safety systems that have been adopting at the stage. (3) Findings The pre-robust test result showing that the carabiner was less than capable to bear the required force. On the other hand, a new outcome was also discovered in quantitative results, nearly 80% of the webpages did not provide the information about the safety systems. (4) Recommendations and Discussions The latest design of ―Clip – Monkey‖ is more user-friendly. The safety has been improved and the assembly is being eased. The prototype improvement is closed to finish. In addition, High Ropes Course Altenhof has begun to choose more than one advertising tool, namely public relations. It is recommended that the type of stainless steel which used for the production should be adapted to a more durable material. Furthermore, more marketing communication tools are preferred in the future to make the advertising program more comprehensive.
