Durable, strong and efficient... This versatile piece of equipment is essential for the rescue professional gear cache. Lightweight aluminum side plates are used in conjunction with a high-strength aluminum sheave. Sealed ball bearings provide optimal efficiency and help to reduce the performance-robbing resistance that is inherent in most multiple component systems.
The primary carabiner hole accepts numerous rescue carabiners. Secondary carabiner holes are provided for use with tag or belay lines. Two quick-release pins may be used to "lock off" the sheave when a high strength tie-off is required. Adding to its versatility, the Kootenay HX may also serve as an edge roller for rope protection.
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.
