Rope clamps are principally used for two purposes: ascending ropes and hauling systems. For ascending ropes, frame-loaded rope clamps are the most commonly used. They are easy and quick to use, facilitating the passage of intermediate anchors and the transition from rope climbing with a clamp to descending

  • Handled rope clamp (right- and left-handed versions)
  • Handle with ergonomic grip for comfort and thermal insulation.
  • Trigger cam with teeth and cleaning slot: works even on dirty or icy ropes.
  • Ergonomic spring-loaded catch is easy to use even when wearing gloves.
  • Spring-loaded catch can be locked in the open position so the rope clamp can be put on or taken off the rope with one hand.
  • Two holes on the bottom: one to connect a lanyard and one for installing a foot loop with a quick link.
  • The upper holes allow a carabiner to be clipped so the rope clamp can be used for self-belaying or with hauling systems.
  • Available in right and left-handed versions.
