The Descent Control 8 provides exceptional control. This descender performs well in repetitive rappelling and descending environments. The unique shape prevents the un-weighted end of the rope from rubbing against the rope passing around the neck of the descender. As with all SMC products, welding is done by aircraft certified welders.
The SMC Rigging Ring is the strongest aluminum ring of its size on the market. The SMC Rigging Ring was designed as the ultimate climbing accessory and can be used in conjunction with anchor systems, haul systems, or as a connection point, providing that missing link which is often needed. The inside diameter will accommodate three standard sized carabiners.
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.
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.
