The numerous applications, from basal anchor with multiple attachment points, to retrievable double rope tie-in-point, give the SnakeAnchor a place in every climbing system.
The SnakeAnchor is easy to install in basket, choked, or straight-sling formations—even the “new guy” can figure it out in a flash. It can be continuously adjusted (2.7 inch intervals).
It can be installed open and used as a friction device with pulley or biner in the desired length. It also can be installed in choking mode and continuously adjusted as well. Because of the tube shaped ring this procedure works much better than with any other tool for this application.
The one-and-only combination system of tube shaped ring, parallel sewn 8 mm polyester double-braid rope as well as segment stitching, makes for a strong, versatile and easy-to-use tool in everyday work situations. If you want to secure or block the choked sling, you just need to install a small biner into an open rope segment right in front of the ring. Climbing ropes can be fastened as lower anchor.
Perhaps the best feature of this tool is the fact that it has shock absorption capabilities. The SnakeAnchor uses an innovative and unique multi stepped stitching system with each section of stitching offering 4 kN of energy absorbing capacity. In the event of a shock load exceeding 4kN, one or more of the rated sections may tear, limiting the force experienced by the climber.
