CMC Rescue SL Variable Anchor Strap
Our Variable Anchor Strap differs significantly in design and performance from other adjustable anchor straps. By using an additional length of web, it can handle a higher load before slipping. It adjusts from 91 cm (3 ft) to 213 cm (7 ft). The D-ring on one end is larger so the other end can pass through, allowing the strap to be rigged in a Choker (Girth Hitch) Configuration and still be adjusted. The high strength, quick adjustability, and variable length make this strap a jack of all trades.
The SL Variable Anchor Strap is constructed from a single layer of latex-coated polyester webbing that is easy to pack, carry, and deploy. Compared to nylon, the polyester webbing is more resistant to UV and water, and has less elongation. The webbing also stands out due to its bright red color, selected for high visibility, and its contrasting gray stitching, which aids inspection. The SL Variable Anchor Strap is classified to NFPA General Use for Basket (U), Choker (Girth Hitch) and End-to-End, providing a high breaking strength to withstand heavy loads on the system. It’s steel adjuster buckle meets the strength specifications stated below without needing to tie a back-up overhand knot.
Supple and pliable, the SL Variable Anchor Strap bends easily around structures and feeds smoothly through metal grating. It combines NFPA General Use strength with a compact, smooth-handling design that excels in challenging conditions. Consider pairing this strap with CMC’s Anchor Sleeves and Edge Guards for increased versatility, durability, and lifetime performance.
Note: We recommend using a Delta Quick Link connector to prevent possible tri-axial loading of a carabiner when used in a basket configuration.
