High-strength Vulcan carabiners are designed for rescue professionals. With a large gate opening and high strength, these carabiners are ideal for setting multiple anchors where conditions are difficult and weight is not an issue.
The Vulcan carabiner is available in two locking systems: manual (SCREW-LOCK system) or automatic (TRIACT-LOCK system) and two colours, gold or black.

The unique shape of SMC's aluminum side plates allow the efficient use of prusik hitches as a belay or progress capture device. Constructed with a 3-inch diameter sheave running on a high-efficiency ball bearing. Low profile fasteners help eliminate the possibility of the pulley snagging. Pulley will accommodate up to 13 mm rope.

An innovation in rope rescue! The MPD allows you to go from lowering to raising without changing hardware. More than nine years of research and development went into the patented Multi-Purpose Device (MPD), which features major innovations in advanced technical hardware for rope rescue professionals.
The MPD's high-efficiency pulley, with an integral rope-grab mechanism, allows it to be used as a lowering device on the main line and belay line systems and be quickly changed over to a raising system without switching out or replacing hardware. The combination of essential features into a single device simplifies on-scene rigging, expediting the rescue.
The revolutionary MPD increases user safety with:
The MPD is UL Classified as a pulley, descent control device and belay device. Variable-friction descent control device for rescue systems and rappels. Incorporates a high efficiency pulley with an integral rope-locking mechanism (ratchet) for a haul system. Built-in becket allows cleaner rigging and more efficient pulley systems. Allows main line and belay line rigging to be mirror images of one another. Functions as both a lowering brake and as a ratcheting pulley for raising. Ideal for confined space operations because it converts rapidly to a retrieval line.
Meets BCCTR Rescue Belay Competency Criteria**. The MPD comes with a padded Cordura nylon storage bag and User's Manual. *13 mm version designed for use with 12.5 - 13 mm rope. Rope used for certification rounded up to 13 mm per NFPA 1983.
** The British Columbia Council of Technical Rescue (BCCTR) Belay Competency Drop Test specifies a 1-meter drop onto 3 meters of kernmantle rescue rope with less than 1 meter of additional travel and less than 15 kN peak force. For a General Use rated device, a 280-kg load and a 12.7-mm rope are generally used.
I'D Self braking descender with antipanic function. Multi-functional handle allows the user to: unblock the rope and control the descent with the hand on the free end of the rope; move more easily on horizontal or low-angle terrain, thanks to the button on the handle; and get into position without having to tie off the device. Anti-panic function is engaged if the user pulls too strongly on the handle : brakes and stops the descent automatically. Anti-error safety catch to reduce the risk of an accident due to incorrect installation of the device on the rope. The shape of the cam is designed to improve rope glide when ascending. The safety gate on the moving side plate helps prevent dropping the device and facilitates installation of the rope when passing intermediate anchors. Pivoting cam facilitates taking up the slack in the rope. Can also be used to make a reversible haul system, and for short ascents (in conjunction with a FOOTPRO foot loop and an ASCENSION handled rope clamp). The I'D L only is designed for rescue operations. Lowers heavy loads up to 250 kg for I'D S and 272 kg for I'D L (only for expert users; consult the Instructions for Use for the device).
The new Prusik-minding pulley (PMP) is ideal for high anchor points or tripod use. The rotating swivel aligns the rope with the direction of the pull. Its stainless steel sheave can be used with either rescue rope or wire cable. By combining the swivel with the pulley, overall system length is minimized, increasing travel. The patented pivoting side plate allows the rope to be quickly inserted.

The patented pivoting side plates allow the rope to be quickly inserted or removed without removing the pulley from the connection point.
Large D shape for great handling, huge gate opening and massive strength. At a rated strength of 72kN, it's one of the strongest carabiners in the world!
Heat-treated, half-load tested (over 8000 lbf.) and built to exacting standards, the Large D is one very fine steel carabiner.
