Skamper Ramp Water And Pool Escape Ramp Large For Dogs Cats And Small Animals Is A Simple And Effective Way To Prevent Unnecessary Drownings

Protect all animals from drowning with this innovative, easy-to-use water escape ramp!

  • Many pet owners try to protect their pet by training it to use the pool steps, however this method becomes an issue at night, if the animal becomes disorientated, or unable to reach the steps
  • It has been shown that over 1300 dogs alone drown in Australia per year which is nearly four times the number of people that drown each year
  • It is time to put an end to this statistic with this simple yet effective water escape ramp!
  • The perfect rescue device that will help protect all animals from accidental drowning at any time of day or night
  • Great for emergency escape situations, or for pets that just love to swim
  • Gives pet owners peace of mind in terms of water safety

  • Perfect for boats, canals, lakes, ponds, pools and other bodies of water
  • Can be used for pets climbing onto a dock or raft
  • Suits all pools including in-ground, above ground, concrete or vinyl-lined
  • The ramp is white because all animals can see white at any time of day and are able to escape onto the ramp to safety
  • Made of recyclable, blow-moulded polyethylene material
  • Lightweight and easy to assemble and disassemble
  • Chemical-resistant, weather-resistant, and UV-resistant
  • Withstands direct sunlight and freezing cold temperatures

Kit includes

  • 1 Skamper-Ramp
  • 1 Extender
  • 2 Ramp Support Bars
  • 1 Component Bag with: 2 D-Ring Clips, 2 nylon washers, 6’ of 1/4” nylon rope

Ramp Assembly

NOTE: The ramp is packaged with the side walls folded against the top of the ramp. In order to assemble, you will need to open this up and fold it flat with the logo facing the ground, in order to properly assemble the ramp body

  • Turn parts face down (Skamper-Ramp logo faces floor); align locking features, then fold sidewalls up, then snap together against the ramp body
  • Align support bars with slots in sidewalls, ramp, and extension. Push down evenly, snapping both sides in at the same time
  • NOTE – hardware for attaching the D-ring clips to the pool deck has not been supplied due to the wide variety of deck types and materials. Please consult your hardware store or pool service company to make the appropriate selection
  • It is suggested to use a ¼” stainless steel pan-head screw 1.25” in length, and a plastic anchor for the screw that is suitable for non-wooden surfaces

Thread the Rope

  • Thread the rope through the smaller ramp holes in the ramp before installing
  • For pools with any overhang at the edge, thread the rope through the holes beneath the Skamper-Ramp logo. Ensure that both sides of the mounting rope are even
  • Tie a simple knot at each side of the ramp to prevent the ramp from shifting when in use
  • NOTE: For pools with a flush edge/coping, thread the rope the set of holes above the Skamper logo
  • Be sure the ramp ‘box’ end fits snuggly underneath the coping and flush against the vertical sidewall of the pool

Attach D-Ring Clips to Deck

  • Hardware for attaching the D-ring-clips to the pool deck HAS NOT been supplied due to the wide variety of deck types and materials
  • Please consult with your local hardware store or pool service company to make the appropriate selection
  • We suggest 1/4” stainless steel pan-head screws 1.25” long into a masonry anchor

There is no ‘one’ correct way to attach the clips, however, it is suggested to:

  • Find a spot visible from all parts of the pool, with minimal deck traffic and activity-this could be next to built-in steps (as a training mechanism), farther down the pool sidewall, or beside the skimmer basket, but do not block the skimmer basket with the ramp
  • Screw the D-ring-clips into the deck surface/coping, flat side down, using 1/4” stainless steel pan-head screws 1.25” long into a masonry anchor
  • The anchors should be positioned approximately 7-15cm from the pool/deck edge, and approximately 25-28cm apart assuring that the rope ends will be parallel when tied through the D-ring clips

Attach Ramp to D-Rings

  • Run a rope end through the mounted D-Ring and pull/position the ramp snugly to the wall with about 7-13cm of the nose end under the recommended level of water
  • Thread the rope through one of the nylon washers up to the D-ring opening and place a simple knot behind it. The washer keeps the knot from pulling through the D-ring

Positioning the Ramp

  • Tighten the mounting ropes until the wing end swings against the pool wall, so the nose end is 7-13cm below the waterline and the ramp is at an angle that is approximately 30° below horizontal.
  • Check tightness of the mounting rope by pressing firmly down on the ramp near the wall
  • It should not deflect downward more that 5-10cm

Your Super Skamper-Ramp is now installed!

  • Keep in mind that it can be flipped out of the pool when you are swimming
  • Just remember to flip it back in once you are out for the day

Training your dog to use the ramp

  • Wild animals seem to know instinctively how to use the Skamper Ramp in an emergency, however many domesticated pets need to be shown
  • It is suggested to take your dog into the pool with you and help it learn how to climb out of the pool using the ramp
  • Place a treat on the upper part of the ramp and the deck just beyond
  • This will encourage your dog to go up and get the treat
  • It is suggested to have 2 people – one on the deck with treats calling the dog out of the water and one in the water to guide the dog
  • It may take several attempts
