Conterra “Slider” Rope Guard
An ingenious tool for rope rescue.
Thicker and stronger than other brands, the Slider Rope Guard is built from several thicknesses of heavy cotton canvas and SI-Tex fabric.
It can be used as an edge guard for rappelling or attach a cord to one of its three rigging points and use it as a “traveling” edge protector for rope rescue (let it travel down with the litter, wrapped around the ropes until it encounters an edge, then just tie off the cord and the edge pro stays put while the litter continues down). See images. Rope not included. 2mm keeper cord optional.
