Details

The future of rigging is here, brought to us by David Driver of X-Rigging Rings. SHERRILLtree and David worked together to develop a revolutionary friction tool for rope rigging work called, SafeBloc.

SafeBloc is a triple hole thimble that adds friction in the rigging system to the top of the tree, thus adding safety by reducing rigging point stress, compared to a system that uses a block or pulley. Also, with the benefit of friction, the climber can often take over on the rigging line AFTER the groundperson controlled the initial drop. This is true on small-to-medium loads. This frees up the groundperson to use both hands and the climber can FINISH the lowering.

Use the SafeBloc anywhere you'd use an arborist block for lowering. The rigging line can be woven through the three holes for its maximum friction, or fewer holes for less friction. However, the climber should not have to travel back to the SafeBloc to do any adjustments; just pick the friction level predicted and continue to use it. The SafeBloc does NOT add significant friction. A device that added too much friction could be dangerous and fatigue the short length of rope between the SafeBloc and the material being lowered. You can use the SafeBloc without a basal lowering device on small-to-medium loads, but once you get to medium-and-above size loads, it's time to add the basal lowering device.

Lightweight and durable, the SafeBloc has no moving parts to wear out or damage, and is hard-coated for extended wear. The SafeBloc comes spliced onto an adjustable whoopie sling, or standard straight sling, available in 3/4-inch tREX from Teufelberger, or Tenex from Samson.

We tested this letting it run with some big wood, and letting it run backed up by the Porta Wrap. It worked just as well as I was hoping. Major reduction in shock load. We have been taking down a lot of dead pines from the Beatle epidemic here in Nor Cal. This piece of gear gives me some comfort when rigging the big slices off the dead stems. (Posted on 2/13/2017)

I bought the Safebloc about a month ago. Had been using regular blocks for years. The Safebloc will eventually replace my blocks entirely in the tree except for pulling with the GRCS. I just ordered another Safebloc today. Very good quality. It takes a load off the rigging point. I rig a lot of dead and rotten trees. Using a regular block in the tree more than doubles the forces at the rigging point. The Safebloc takes a lot of that force away allowing me to rig bigger pieces. When you're tied to the rigging point, the shock isn't near as bad especially if the groundie fails to let it run properly. It's easy enough to pull the rope back up but still adds enough friction to handle small to medium size limbs. Used in conjunction with a brake on the ground everything works very smoothly. I've only used 1/2 rope so far. 5/8 and 3/4 rope will have considerable more friction. (Posted on 2/13/2017)

What a great and simple tool. I have done natural crotch rigging for 11 years. The SAFEBLOC is very similar in feel with friction on the rope but much more consistent and smooth. As my rope man said the first time we used it is way better than a crotch. I am looking forward to see what else I can do with it. Thank you Mr Driver and Sherrill Tree (Posted on 11/28/2016)
