  • Akimbo Logo

    (Limited stock)

    The Akimbo is a versatile mid-line attachable friction device that allows climbers to ascend and descend a stationary or moving rope system without changing equipment, and without detaching from your saddle. Adjustable settings allow for optimal performance with a range of climber weights and rope diameters.

    DESCRIPTION

    The Akimbo is a unique arborist climbing tool that enables the climber to ascend, descend and position on both stationary rope and moving rope systems. The Akimbo features rope contact surfaces (Upper and Lower Bollards) that adjust to accommodate a wide range of rope sizes to suit the climber's needs or preferences -- all without tools or disassembling components. The Bollards can also be adjusted to increase or decrease friction to accommodate changes in climber weight, changes in environment, or adjust for natural wear of the Akimbo's contact surfaces.The Akimbo opens easily to remove or install a rope mid-line in seconds, and compresses back down into a compact form factor both on and off the rope. When climbing on stationary rope, the chest harness connection point facilitates quick connections by way of an innovative wire gate. As opposed to a closed loop attachment, the wire gate conveniently allows the climber to use a small non-PPE carabiner to connect to the SRS attachment point, or directly to a loop of cord.
    APPROVED ROPESThe following ropes are approved for use with the Akimbo at the Working Load Limit (WLL) shown below. Only approved ropes should be used with the Akimbo. Working Load is equal to the total weight of the climber including gear. Total Working Load of the climber must not exceed the Working Load Limit (WLL) for the rope listed below or slippage may occur!

    WarningSuitability of approved ropes can be affected by environmental factors, condition of rope, and condition of Akimbo. Follow steps in the Akimbo User Instructions to test rope and verify friction settings before climbing. Check often for updates to the list of approved ropes.

  • ART Spiderjack 3

    Multifunctional, self-blocking rope control device for the running double rope. The running rope is directly in front of the climber so it is possible to pull and feed the rope very comfortably with one hand or hand over hand into the device. Turning it in the releasing position and pressing the thumb brake needs very little force. So speed regulation is very easy. This smoother handling allows for more convenience and safer feeling when using the speed control. The SpiderJack 3 has a secured locking position function. This gives a maximum of safety when working. The frame is made of high quality stainless steel, so the danger of failure is very low even under high stress.

    The integrated swivel allows to turn and use the device always in the optimum direction. There is a pulley under the body. So the pull force from a deflected rope is smoothly absorbed in the device instead in the hand of the climber. It is not possible to place the cam erroneously in the wrong direction. The big replaceable wearing pin inside the rope channel allows for working with the device for many years.

     

    SpiderJack 3 features:

    • certified according to EN 358
    • multifunctional device for ascending and descending with the running double rope
    • for left and right handers
    • two cams: for ropes with Ø 11 to 12 mm and Ø 12 to 14
    • frame made of high quality stainless steel
    • service life: 10 years
    • minimum breaking strength: 22 kN
    • working load: 200 kg
    • using with a second person for rescue is allowed
    • weight: 511 g
