Description & Tech Specs

Device Only

SLYDE is an ingenious adjuster for ropes that reduces impact forces. It can be used with ropes with a diameter between 9mm and 10mm.

 

The user can make their own system that can be adapted to their own unique use case. They're able to take into account the many variables such as the type of rope, connections, forces involved, weights, environmental conditions (wet, dust, snow… which make the rope stiffer and not slide as easily), wear, and what could happen during use.

 

When correctly evaluated, those parameters allow the creation of a fine-tuned system created precisely for their requirements. Remember that the free rope end must not slip out from the SLYDE, while giving enough length to absorb the greatest foreseen shock!

Because it is not possible to test all configurations and uses, this device is not a PPE and it has not been tested according to EN958.


Through testing we have found the Beal Joker 9.1mm rope provides the perfect balance. It slides enough to absorb significant force, without sliding too easily. We also sell it by the foot which makes it easy to create your ideal length with the Slyde. We highly recommend buying 3 more feet than your desired length to account for the required knots on either side.
