Welcome to the Monkey Hardware page
Whether you run an Outdoor Education Centre or Adventure Park, a Scout/Guide Group, Cadets, D of E, Children's Play Centre or Farm Park - Monkey Hardware is the sensational tree friendly, fully portable climbing adventure!
ACR is the exclusive UK supplier of Monkey Hardware Climbing Sets. Monkey Sets are a unique type of climbing hold that can easily be fitted to trees and other structures to create a simple or complex climbing environment for training, teaching or just having fun!
Each set consists of a number of specially developed holds that can be fitted quickly and easily by use of tension straps, and they can be configured in lots of different ways to provide a challenge for users of different capabilities.
Climbing Monkeys should be a fun and challenging experience. The possibilities for young or old, inexperienced or competent climbers are limitless.
We have re-organised our Monkey Sets into levels of difficulty with the approximate climbing height, making it easier for you to choose which set will best suit your requirements.
Choose an 'Off the Tree' set, and you could be 'Monkeying around' within a few days!*(subject to stock availability). All of our 'Off the Tree' sets are packed with Monkeys, holds, belts, screws, allen key and a stuff sack.
Of course, if you have a specific tree or requirement in mind, we can create an exclusive set just for you! Just complete the Monkey Tree Survey, return it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reply with a quotation within 48 hours.

Belaying is a necessary part of climbing Monkeys, users should be competent to do so.
Tree Surveys and Training
Here at ACR we are committed to ensuring your Monkey Installation is correctly installed, successful, and safe for your participants.
In the UK, it is considered to be good practice for any tree which is in a public place (or used by the public) to have an annual survey by a competent person. This may sound unbelievable and onerous but it is the advice given by most local authorities. It includes trees on private land which could threaten a highway, train track, footpath etc. With this in mind, we strongly recommend that any trees to be used for the Monkey Hardware Climbing Holds are inspected by a qualified and competent person, such as a registered Tree Consultant.
