Tonight I was working a load-in at a certain popular college on the west coast when a few of my co-workers and I were struggling to take out a line-set containing only a traveler track. Just as we got the arbor to the ground the rope broke off the arbor. Luckily we had a combined 8 hands on the line @ the time so SOMEONE had a hand on it when it broke but since it was WAY outta weight we all struggled in a hurry to re-tie the rope back to the arbor. Someone could've died tonight. The rope was frayed really badly @ the end and upon trying to re-tie the knot into the arbor we found there wasn't enough slack to re-tie it like the other line-sets. We tied one knot and taped and tielined the tail of the rope, flew it back in and took the traveler track off, took the line back down to pipe weight, flew it back out, taped the line up so that no one would try and move it and then we tied another rope to the arbor and the rail so if it tried to get away it still has this rope holding it. I'm just worried about the safety of that stage until someone gets in there and fixes it for real. What do you guys think? Has this ever happened to you before?
