H-2 Hobbs Lowering Device

Completely self-contained, the "Hobbs" is tough enough to lift and strong enough to lower. Other brands require swapping out the winch component for a fixed bollard when "catching" pieces. Well, sometimes you have to raise, lower, raise and lower in order to put a piece where you want it. The H-2 does all of this and more. Redesigned and rated for 3/4-inch double braided esterlon (20,000 pbs*). Three mounting options to fit the job: Preservation, Dogged-in, and Cut-in. Recommended SWL is 1,000, 2000, 3000 respectively. 58 lbs. of solid muscle, the H-2 ships complete with mounting strap (65-inches maximum diameter and winch bar. Questions? Please call us.

Rigging Plate

An essential component in an advanced Speed Line operation, the Rigging Plate creates a platform to hang the traveling block, haul back line and rigging slings from efficiently and in the proper alignment. A key feature to the Rigging Plate is it's weight of at least 8 pounds. What many people unfamiliar with Speed Line rigging don't understand is that weight in the traveling block is essential to performance. The weight helps to prevent the Load Line and Haul Back line from getting crossed and jammed. The weight also ensures that the haul back line will haul back. If there's no weight in the traveling block, it won't come down unless it's under load and that isn't always possible or desirable. The holes along the bottom permit the attachment of several rigging slings. Handy when working in closely branched pine trees. Attach the Haul Back line to the 5/8-inch shackle provided. The F-RP104 pulley is ideal for Speed Lines up to 5/8-inch, and it works even better with 9/16-inch. Remember at all times, a major advantage of technical rigging is that you can maintain control in an efficient manner. The time you save should be invested in taking smaller pieces.

Screw Pin Anchor Shackle

AKA clevis. Shackles make a strong, secure and inexpensive connecting link between slings and pulleys and many other fittings. No rope should ever be "run" through a shackle "under load" because the tight bend ration can reduce rope strength by as much as 50%. Increased friction can also lead to heat fusion failure which is a technical way of saying the rope can get so hot it could melt through and fail with potentially catastrophic results. That said, shackles and screw links are quite often a much better alternative to carabiners in certain rigging applications where strength is more important than repetitive opening and closing. If you can set it and forget it for extended periods of time, a shackle or screw link might be the most best choice.
