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.

    • Machined aluminum chassis clad with stainless steel wear guards ensures lightweight durability.

    • Integrated becket allows for direct connection of mechanical advantage systems.

    • The only 10.5-11.5 mm rope diameter compatible device certified to NFPA 1983 (G-Rated), ANSI Z359.4 and EN 12841/C, 341/2A, and 15151/8.

    • The CLUTCH and CMC’s G11 Lifeline can be used together to build NFPA G rated systems using 11 mm rope, saving space and reducing weight.

    • Patent pending.
