The unique shape of SMC's aluminum side plates allows 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.
This carabiner sets the standard in climbing, mountaineering and rescue applications. Extremely lightweight, it offers high strength and a large gate opening for functional versatility. The locking sleeve engages the gate rather than the frame to prevent jamming.
SMC originally designed the FLEX for the demanding Technical Fire Rescue market as a canvas replacement. Soon after using the FLEX, we realized it is much more than the ultimate in configurable rope management and protection. In fact, the FLEX is FLEXible in its uses - the only limitation is your imagination. Use a stand-alone FLEX or connect multiple FLEX pads with the FLEX CLIPS to help solve everyday problems.
SMC's Compact U Rack has many advantages over other small U racks beyond SMC's quality manufacturing. The ingenious design prevents the bars from sliding around the bottom of the rack. The standard rack width allows it to be rigged on two ropes. The upper and lower tie off bars provide a greater variability of friction and secure tie off.
