These Spinlock rope cleats are a fantastic way to tidy up any permanent rigging situation. Used by a few studios across the UK - and here in the firetoys HQ - they make easy management of rigging height, swapping in and out of equipment, and tidying up after a training session or class super easy!
These will need a pulley or 2 set up to be used properly, but will allow you to adjust and lock the height without having to tie off multiple alpine butterflies or barrel knots.
Supporting ropes from 8-14mm in diameter, the super strong lever arm locks any rope that has been threaded through the body in place. A 10mm line will be held at over 700 Kg of tension. And the wider the rope, the firmer the grip, up to 1000kg for a 14mm rope.
If you just have the 1 rigging point then you will need 1-2 pulleys and the 1-rope version of this rope clutch.
If you have multiple inline rigging points that you can attach pulleys to, then you can go up to 3 ropes in one clutch with the 2-rope or 3-rope versions.
Firetoys recommends that you always have a secondary attachment below the rope cleat, such as a tie-off point, or a ground anchor, to catch the ropes in the case of catastrophic failure. A stop-knot is also recommended.
Please consult a builder, engineer, or other qualified person before attaching these cleats to any structure.
