Based on Russ Anderson's original design, these pulleys are essential equipment for the serious rigger. Rotating side plates allow attachment of the pulley anywhere on the rope and the 3 inch and 4 inchmodels will accept multiple carabiners. Axle nuts are marked with a blue witness line to indicate if the axle nut has been turned or tampered with.
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.
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.
In recognition of the unique requirements found in Swift Water Rescue, this aluminum pulley features a series of holes in the side plates to help to minimize any hydroplaning.
