Description

Details

More than just a big, heavy, shiny, steel Christmas tree ornament–looking thing (which, by the way, are all the things you want in a heavy-duty piece of rigging equipment), the BackBones are a vital link in fast-paced, secure rigging scenarios.

Attach the BackBone firmly to the lead end of the rigging line. A splice is the cleanest connection, but a cinching-type knot works as well. The first thing you’ll notice is its tendency to just float where your ground crew puts it. The weight not only makes it tough, but it counterbalances the fall of the rigging line when there is an average amount of rope in the system.

Add numerous combinations of all types of slings. The BackBone can handle it—hollow braid, double braid, webbing, loop, or single eye. The combinations are yours to develop. Balance limbs, attach multiple branches in “bouquet” fashion, and send them to the ground to let your crewmates know how much you care! Almost any rated sling you would want to use will fit securely and function optimally with the BackBone.

Don’t be afraid to loop the rigging line through and choke it off to itself with the BackBone as the lock. This feature allows flawless transition between static and dynamic rigging, all the while maintaining quick turnaround time from ground to you in the tree.

Knots—for all their benefits—take time to tie, dress, and set, then, conversely, to reverse the process on the ground. The BackBone eliminates most of that “untie time” and increases productivity in a secure, no-hassle, sturdy package. No longer will ground crews struggling with knots be a “bone of contention”! In cold weather, heavy gloves can stay in place as you and your crew work.

Think knotless rigging is for you? Can’t wait to get the hottest, shiniest, most innovative rigging tool to hit the market since the Port-a-Wrap? Another successful collaboration between SHERRILLtree and Scott Prophett, the BackBone is sure to become your go-to device for many rigging scenarios!

Now in a smaller package, the BackBone Mini is perfect for smaller limbs, smaller trees, and those situations when the full size seems just too much. Dead wood over the green house, crown reduction over the pool? No problem. Not only that, but it makes a perfect keychain for the really tough arborist!

So easy to use, and heavy-duty enough to handle big stuff. Makes rigging multiple limbs with slings easy and fast. Excellent value. Now there's a mini version. I want that one too! (Posted on 10/12/2016)

This thing has so many uses its kind of ridiculous. Ive used it for so many things :
Balancing limbs-lowerable srt Basel anchor - block (in a pinch )- redirect for felling- friction device. the list seriously goes on for ever.

The only thing i don't like about it is that its very heavy, almost 4lbs . which is ok i just wont be attaching on my saddle for a long period of time (Posted on 6/4/2016)

A major game-changer in top-down removals. Significantly shaves time from jobs. Worth every penny. I wish I had one fifteen years ago. Paired with some nylon loop runners and rigging line with a spliced eye, and you'll be off to the races!!! (Posted on 8/23/2014)

Knotless riggers will love it. Buy a bunch of loop runners of various lengths, attach it to a rope with a spliced eye, and you're ready to rig anything. Heavy duty. Great design. Another small invention that just makes things more efficient. (Posted on 12/16/2013)

Great tool! We used it in a large tree removal in several different applications. We used to tie off several smaller limbs at a time. We used on some large limbs and then on our crane. it makes tying off and untying quick, easy and safer. Gives using nylon runners a whole new purpose.Thanks for the great tool.Tim P.S. A smaller lighter version would be great for climbing. (Posted on 5/4/2013)
