Rock Exotica has reinvented the machined pulley. Their machined pulleys are milled from solid 7075 aluminum, which allows anyåÊmaterial to be removed from where it's not needed and left it where it is required. The axle is machined as part of the side plate, allowing for a flush head axle screw. That's why these pulleys are more compact, stronger and lighter weight than conventional stamped pulleys.
The Aztek Compact 4:1 Mechanical Advantage is a highly compact MA system that continually amazes rescuers with its many uses and versatility. Even with 8mm rope, the system maintains a strength of 36kN.
Some applications for the Aztek include use as a pick off, travel restriction, adjustable directional, high directional guyline, high angle attendant tether, high angle litter scoop, load release hitch and much more. Each of the̴ Aztek pulleys has their own colour-coded prusik and can be easily activated or deactivated. This means you can have the ratchet at either the top pulley or the bottom pulley. The special 3-on-2 prusik cannot come off the rope, so the deactivated prusik will stay ready to be used as soon as you need it.
You cannot appreciate how smooth and easy the use of the prusiks is until you experience it. Because the prusik only sees a fraction of the total load in an MA system, they don't get too tight and they are easy to release and very controllable.
This system grew out of extensive use and experimentation of small MA systems by Ropes That Rescue and is light-years ahead of anything else. If the world as we know it ends and you need an MA system to help you rebuild civilization, this is the one!

The Enforcer is a compact aluminum load cell that measures forces up to 20 kN. Utilizing two sampling modes, the Enforcer is able to monitor systems and log drop testing in high resolution. Unique features like Bluetooth connectivity and swivel attachment points separate the Enforcer into a class of its own.
The Omni-Block combines a swivel and pulley into one tool, and incorporates a unique sideplate that opens while the pulley is still attached to the anchor. Traditionally, a pulley is connected to a swivel by a carabiner. However, the Omni eliminates the need for the carabiner, reducing length and pieces of equipment in the rigging system. The short length of the Omni is important when used in high-angle, confined space or other space-sensitive rigging environments. The reduced weight of the Omni will make hauling your gear easier. Additionally the Omni sideplate can be opened without detaching from the carabiner. Traditional pulleys require removing from the carabiner to change the rope. With the Omni, the user is able to do this while the pulley is still secured.
