Features

Extremely simple and totally efficient, this system uses the principle of squeezing capacity offered by braided sleeves. As the line comes under load it is instantly squeezed by the Aramid Technora® sock. The more the tension, the more it holds. The rope is not pressed between two metallic parts as with conventional clutches: It is not distorted, subject to wear or chafe. It is released by simply retracting the sleeve, which is easy even under heavy load.
