Trapezoidal Vault Box Construction Manual

This manual should give you everything you’ll need to build a sturdy vault box of almost any size.

To help illustrate the instructions, this manual will refer to and make calculations for a 3 ½’ or 42” high vault box. 42” because we have found this height to be one of the most versatile and useful box heights in our gym. It is also an ideal height for many parkour practitioners to practice high power vaults. NOTE: More advanced or taller practitioners may prefer a taller wall, perhaps 4’ or higher. Likewise, shorter or less experienced practitioners often prefer a wall closer to 3’ tall. You can cater to your student base but eventually, you will want many walls of varying height to give yourself or your students the widest range of progression and variety of applicable techniques.

“I built two vault boxes after getting these manuals and can highly recommend them. I feel it saved me plenty of time and trial and error that I would have had to contend with even though basic plans are available for free. Worth the investment.” — Kai Ewert 🇺🇸

Open Box Construction Manual

This manual has everything you’ll need to build a sturdy “open box” shaped obstacle of almost any size. If you are already familiar and comfortable with carpentry, it probably has way more than you need!

To help illustrate the instructions, this manual will refer to and make calculations for a 3’ x 4’ x 5’ obstacle. This obstacle can be used in several orientations, but we will by default refer to the obstacle in its lowest orientation. I.e. laid flat on its broadest side with both open faces exposed (3’ tall, 4’ & 5’ wide/deep).

We have found this shape to be one of the most versatile in our schools. It is a great tool for learning the kongs because it allows students to confidently practice monkey plants for distance. The open faces create technical precision challenges as well as a narrow space for QM and precision rolling. The box also makes a great platform in its default orientation. When oriented on its side, the box presents even more vault, precision, cat, and flipping possibilities, but is less stable along its thinnest axis.
