The Climbing Technology Hook-It Slider Set is a Via Ferrata set containing a slider and two Hook-It carabiners, suitable for general use by adults and children.
Developed in accordance with the new safety standards, the Climbing Technology Hook-It Slider Set has a patent pending SLIDER, (a compact energy absorber) that ensures exceptional progressive braking and low impact force on the user in case of a fall. The set can be used by people weighing more than 40kg (88 lbs, without equipment) up to a weight of 120 kg (265 lbs, including the equipment), but the Slider will work most effectively when the user’s weight is in the intermediate range (60-80-100 kg).
The Hook-It carabiners are hot-forged and lightweight. They are easy to use even with smaller hands due to the grip, and have the following main characteristics:
ergonomic grip and large opening (38 mm) which enables the user to open it in a way that the hand does not interfere with the anchor;
double lever opening system that facilitates connecting and disconnecting with one hand;
catch-free closure that avoids accidental release during use.
SLIDER, a compact energy absorber that ensures exceptional progressive braking and low impact force on the user in case of a fall, also when the user’s weight is in the intermediate range (60-80-100 kg).
Robust type K carabiners with ergonomic grip, automatic double-gate locking system and large-opening to allow for easy clipping and unclipping to via RRFerrata cables or chains.
Robust and elastic arms to ease clipping and unclipping manoeuvres. The arms are independently Y-connected to the absorber in order to provide the best performance in the event of a load.
Central lanyard also connected to the absorber, working as a third connection point to stop/rest on an anchor, if needed.
Robust and durable orange loop for the connection to the harness with a girth hitch, easy to install, very sturdy and long-lasting.
Compact and strong protective pouch containing the absorber, with a zip that facilitates the inspection of the safety label, in case of a fall and/or before each use.
