CMC created the Pick-Off Strap so that a rescuer could quickly connect to the victim and then adjust the strap to the desired length and they work well for positioning the victim for a lowering or rappel-based pick-off, or for an assisted rappel.
CMC also added a loop to the end for a more positive grip when pulling to adjust.
The strong 1-3/4 inch web improves long-term durability, especially where the strap threads through the buckle. Depending on how the buckle is loaded, it will begin to slip between 15-20 kN (3,500-4,500 lbf). Tying off the buckle will increase the strength and minimize slippage. Fully extended length is 54 inches (137 cm).
The integrated Web Keeper allows the strap to be carried on a gear sling or harness without tangling or getting caught.
This high-performance pick-off strap is designed to weigh less and be less bulky, but still perform when you need it.
With a sewn anchor loop on the load end and a hand loop on the haul end, this strap allows for quick weight transfer from one system to another.
This is the only Pick-Off Strap with two carabiners incorporated directly into the strap, which reduces the overall weight.
CMC uses the same high-strength, mil-spec web and adjuster hardware as in their original Pick-Off Strap. The web begins to slip through the buckle at 17-18 kN (3,800-4,000 lbf). åÊThe two ProTech Auto-Lock Carabiners with keeper pins are UL Classified to NFPA 1983 - Technical Use.
