Introducing the all-new CLUTCH, the latest evolution in rescue and rope access hardware that enables the technical rope professional to do more with less. This multi-purpose device was designed and engineered in collaboration by two companies with a collective 90 year history in rope management under heavy loads: CMC, a company with roots in rescue and rope access, and Harken Industrial, a manufacturing company with roots in high performance sailing.
Designed for intuitive, efficient operation, ease of use and optimal control, the versatile CLUTCH is suited to a multitude of rigging operations:
Single wearable tool suited for efficient hauling, controlled lowering, smooth personal descent, easy ascending and belaying.
Stainless steel ratcheting and rotating sheave provides efficient and audible progress capture.
Rope loading/unloading is secured with an innovative double-latched side plate design that is independent of the device‘s attachment point.
Anti-Panic brake and force limiting features ensure operational safety and overload protection.
