The 2” Single PMP "Prusik Minding Pulley" represents a mid-sized option for those needing the unique features of a PMP.
This mid-sized PMP is the perfect choice for rigging with 11 mm (7/16 inch) rope or when you don't have room for a 3 inch PMP. Pulley will accommodate up to 13 mm rope.
This pulley is one of the lightest UL Certified pulleys meeting NFPA “G” General Use. In fact, the breaking strength for this pulley is the highest available based upon the strength to weight ratio. Prusik Minding Pulleys are especially versatile and may be used in many ways, from progress capture and hauling systems to crevasse rescue, high-lines and Tyrolean traverses.
The wide base design maximizes the effectiveness of a Prusik hitch while a unique side plate formation allows the use of larger ropes in a compact pulley ideally suited for 8mm prusik. An oversized bell-shaped top hole accepts 2 large rescue carabiners or multiple small carabiners and allows the carabiners to be rotated freely and completely. Sealed ball bearings provide optimal efficiency and reduce the performance-robbing resistance that is inherent in most multiple component systems. In addition, sealed ball bearings are not prone to failure under misaligned loads or with twisted gear as can be the case with needle bearings.
Solid side plates help prevent foreign object access and reduce snagging and are precisely tensioned for easy one-handed operation and secure placement at any point along the 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.
SMC originally designed the FLEX for the demanding Technical Fire Rescue market as a canvas replacement. Soon after using the FLEX, we realized it is much more than the ultimate in configurable rope management and protection. In fact, the FLEX is FLEXible in its uses - the only limitation is your imagination. Use a stand-alone FLEX or connect multiple FLEX pads with the FLEX CLIPS to help solve everyday problems.
SMC's Compact U Rack has many advantages over other small U racks beyond SMC's quality manufacturing. The ingenious design prevents the bars from sliding around the bottom of the rack. The standard rack width allows it to be rigged on two ropes. The upper and lower tie off bars provide a greater variability of friction and secure tie off.
