Sterling 8 mm x 16" (Short) Sewn Prusik
Why didn't someone think of this sooner??? Sterling's innovative sewn prusik is available in 2 sizes perfectly matched to the standard prusik minding pulley. No knots to tie (or worry about accidental untying). In a dynamic event the bound loop feature keeps the loop on the strong spine of the carabiner, away from accidentally riding up over the plate of the pulley. Same strength as a typical prusik with a double fisherman's knot. Assorted colors.
MINIMUM BREAK STRENGTH 5667 POUNDS (26.2 kN)
Proper training and experience is mandatory - practice with your system before working with live loads. The difference in diameter between the main line and your Prusik loop diameter should follow the general rule of a 60-80% ratio. 8mm cord is best suited for 1/2" rope. We recommend you practice your prusik application prior to actual field use - all prusik or accessory cords are not compatible with all mainline or belay rope.
