Details

Features:
  • Single wearable tool for efficient hauling, controlled lowering, smooth personal descent, easy ascending, belaying, and Twin Tension Rope Systems.
  • Delivers up to 38% higher efficiency in hauling and ascending than a cam-style device: reducing changeovers.
  • Moves seamlessly between anchor-based systems and personal use: reducing gear cache volume and weight.
  • Combines the key features of personal descenders and load management devices: reducing equipment training and cost.
  • Instantly transitions between hauling and lowering or ascent and descent without having to transfer the load.
  • Allows main and belay lines to be mirrored, twin-tensioned, or nested in Double CLUTCH technique (handles controlled by single operator).
  • Replaces 8 pieces of traditional equipment: pulley, rescue rack, anchor plate, load release strap, prusik cord, and 3 carabiners.
  • The 11 mm CLUTCH and CMCs G11 Lifeline can be used together to build NFPA G-Rated systems using 11mm rope, saving space and reducing weight.
  • The 11 mm CLUTCH is compatible with 10.5 thru 11 mm rope and certified to NFPA 1983 General Use, ANSI, and EN standards. It is the only device for 10.5 thru 11 mm rope that carries all these certifications.
  • The 13 mm CLUTCH is compatible with 12.5 thru 13 mm rope and certified to NFPA 1983 General Use and ANSI standards.
  • Patented. Made in the USA.


Components:
  • Stainless steel ratcheting and rotating sheave provides efficient and audible auto-locking progress capture.
  • Rope loading/unloading is secured with an innovative double-latched side plate that is independent of the device‘s attachment point.
  • Anti-Panic brake and force limiting features ensure operational safety and overload protection.
  • Machined aluminum chassis clad with stainless steel wear guards ensures light weight and durability.
  • Integrated becket allows for the direct connection of mechanical advantage components.
  • Control handle has large sweet spot for smooth, progressive lowering and descent control.
  • Included screw can be installed in the side plate to create closed rope systems for rapid deployment.
