Developed specifically to meet the needs of rescue system belays. The well-engineered Traverse 540 is a patented, self-locking, easy-to-rig device that meets demanding drop-test criteria: able to hold falling loads quickly while limiting the peak force.
The symmetrical design reduces the risk of improper rigging. A built-in release lever discharges the tension on the belay rope, eliminating the need for a release hitch.
The 540 belay device passes the BCCTR Rescue Belay Competence Drop Test Criteria
** The British Columbia Council of Technical Rescue 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 12.5-mm rope are generally used. For a Technical Use device, a 200-kg load and an 11.1-mm rope are used.

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.
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...View full product details
