Our Helo-Lanyard™ Operator Retention Lanyard System is secured directly to the Operator via a sit-harness or the attachment point of any rated rigger's belt soft loop or hard ring. The Lanyard can then be connected to to helo platform floor-rings, removeable floor-anchor rings or rated soft-rigging using your preference of double or triple-action snaphook.
It is purpose-built as a tactical position and retention lanyard for military and SWAT operators to secure themselves to helicopter platforms where seatbelts are not an option. The system design accounts for the safety of the Operator by limiting forces to the body while reducing forces to the helo platform's anchor points during emergency scenarios.

The all-new Firefly Descender™ is a collaborative design and development project with the result being a world-leading emergency tree egress system for paragliders that is the lightest and most compact system available.
The Firefly Descender™ device is auto-locking and made specifically to work with 3.6mm high-strength braided Technora™ rope. The Firefly Descender™ comes as a kit and has everything needed to anchor to the tree or risers, and then escape the paraglider or parachute harness and descend safely to the ground.
The Quickie Ascender™ is a progress capture device designed for a single-person load. It can also be used as a ratchet in an ascent system or within a pulley system (e.g. for use in a lightweight crevasse rescue rope kit for professional ski guides or similar). The Quickie Ascender™ is designed to be used with 6.0 - 6.5mm, Technora-sheathed rope (i.e. Sterling 6mm TRC and is unique in that it incorporates force reduction into the system through slippage at a specific force window. Designed to be used with the Quickie Descender™.
The Quickie Descender™ is a patented, self-locking device that is quick and easy to deploy, being able to connect and dis-connect mid-rope. Critically, its design incorporates force-limiting through a calculated amount of rope-slip through the device if the system is suddenly loaded.
It works best with smaller locking carabiners (such as a DMM Phantom or similar) and is designed for use with 6.0 - 6.5mm, Technora-sheathed rope (i.e. Sterling 6mm TRC). A great, lightweight device for climbing guides.
These specially designed pulleys were developed together with military rescue-specialists and mountain guides, and are now used extensively in those fields. After numerous years of use we have now certified them for the recreation market. They're ideal for multiple activities where small, lightweight pulleys are desired, and where ultimate trust is required. For use with up 10mm rope. The machined side-plates ensure strength where needed while allowing us to create beautiful, radiused edges for ultimate rope-friendly use. These are great to use with your descender systems as well as for general climbing.
This specially designed Hook incorporates a multiple of features to make it ideal for scenarios requiring quick access and exit. Lightweight but made of high quality, heat treated alloy steel, it provides the strength required for one-person loads. The design also allows it to be attached to a Collector-Block which transforms this device into a quad Grappling Hook system
The PDQ2 is an Autolocking Descent Device, with anti-panic feature. It's Designed to work 6 mm XTEC heat-resistant Technora® rope, and is sold as a fully-assembled kit ready for deployment.
The Escape Artist provides hands-free edge transition and optimal descent control for emergency escape. Intended to be pre-rigged on an escape line and kept ready for immediate use, the Escape Artist pays out the rope or web smoothly and then locks when loaded, leaving both hands free to negotiate the exit. Squeezing the lever controls the descent rate.
