If preservation work “done right” and maintaining climbing lines is important to your company, then a Friction Saver should be readily available in your Rope Boss™ Line Luggage. By utilizing a Friction Saver between your rope and the tree, you nearly eliminate burning friction to your lifeline and certainly reduce the introduction of grit and sand that is present in and on all tree bark. Only Buckingham produces “load rated” Friction Savers with hardened rings, fat enough to significantly limit rope’s bend radius. Buckingham’s anodized aluminum rings are lightweight and dissipate heat better than the steel rings, but don’t withstand abrasive friction quite as long. Some climbers are also more secure with the fact that steel rings can put up with abuse, intentional or not, better than aluminum. Buckingham’s machine-stitched friction savers have a multilayered, stiff-bodied design that insures quick installations and easy removals. The big end is color coded RED and small end green for easy identification during ground removals and installation. By using throwline, a Buckingham Friction Saver can be both installed, and removed from the ground in just minutes. Detailed instructions provided with each Friction Saver. 5,000 lb. load rating.

Best with steel rings Review by Joe TreeClimber
The Buckingham cambium savers are the best- even better if you get them with the steel rings for durability. (Posted on 6/13/2016)
