“I have two of these on my onyx and they are very light weight and low profile while maintaining strength. They also look really cool!”
This super-compact rigging plate from DMM packs a 36 kN strength and 4 rigging holes into a tiny plate less than 2 1/2" on a side and weight only 1.3 oz!
In rigging applications the Paw is used as an anchor multiplier, allowing easy organization of the work area with multiple anchor systems. Aluminum body gives excellent strength to weight ratio. Small holes are 3/4” in diameter and will accept most carabiners and links. Three sizes available.
The Tree Angel rigging plate was designed in Japan to act as a quick and versatile connection system between your rigging lines and your slings. This device is ideal for multi-limb lowering on zip lines. Anodised aluminum body, MBS 60 kN. Weighs 420 g.
The Conterra Hitch-Plate provides an anchor point wherever you can place your vehicle. The Hitch-Plate? is beautifully made and wicked strong. It is CNC machined entirely from billet aluminum in Conterra's ISO 9001 certified fab shop. It sports five large rigging holes and will fit in any 2" vehicle receiver. (Please check and make sure that your receiver is 2.00 inches) It has an ingenious system that keeps the pin and cotter attached to the device so that they can't be lost. It comes with it's own padded Ballistics nylon case with grab handle and hang loop.
Meets NFPA Standard 1983 (2012 ed.) and is UL certified. Rated for General Use (G) MBS 50 kN.
(For rope rescue only. Not for vehicle recovery or towing.)
CMI Maxi Rigging Plates are constructed from aircraft grade aluminum and finished in iridescent purple for instant recognition. Each plate contains one 1.25” anchor hole, eleven 0.75” diameter rigging holes, and one 0.8”x3” slot for rigging anchor straps. The eleven hole design allows for center loading making it useful for stretcher operations. NFPA Compliant.
Size: 9.5” x 4.75” (24cm x 12cm), Weight: 17.6oz (500g), Breaking Strength: 14,000 lb. Made in the U.S.A.
The rockStar is the latest in 3-D rigging technology. Machined from a solid block of 7075 aerospace alloy, it's light and compact enough to take with you wherever you need it, and at 36 kN, it's strong enough to handle a tough day at work. Weighs 7.4 oz, breaking strength 8,100 lb.
Precision measuring of forces in rigging systems is now possible with remote monitoring thanks to the advent of the enForcer load cell by Rock Exotica. The aluminum body mounts the load cell on 2 swivels for easy installation in-line in the rigging system. Both static loads and dynamic events can be measured using the "slow" or "fast" sampling modes. An app (available from the Apple App store for about $30) allows the recording, monitoring, and graphing of events, as well as remote monitoring of forces on your iPhone.
The enForcer comes with a waterproof, hard-plastic case.
These rings work well with carabiners or slings and rope attachments. Slots on Hub rated at 10,125 lb (45 kN). Inner ring rated at 18,000 lb (80 kN) on small, 33,750 lb (150 kN) on large ring. Made in the U.K.
Anodized aluminum ring with high strength rating. Made in the U.S.A.
1.7” diameter, 1.1” center, thickness .5", 7,200 lb. (32kN) rating.

“ Super cheap and compact! These little buys can be used in many applications but i use mine as a rope bridge attachment point. ”
Review by: Nicholas
“ I recently purchased 3 SMC rings for a adjustable crotch with a pinto pulley. I was glad to see a retrieval device was offered from WesSpur for ground retrieval. On a prusik cord 6mm diameter I eye spliced 2 of the rings on either end for a secondary crotch point. I enjoyed building this small project and found the internet a great resource to help me understand the variations of this system, made possible by SMC aluminum rings. As a beginner I found SMC quality very remarkable and user friendly. I look forward to using this ground retrievable adjustable crotch with my new pinto pulley on my next trimming job with the use of my hand ascender and foot ascender to minimize spikes in the tree.”
Simple and functional way to multiply anchor points. Aluminum. Made in the U.K. Minimum breaking strength: 6,750 lb (30 kN).
For the first time, the opening rings which connect the Sequoia bridge and leg loops are available for individual purchase.
The RING OPEN gated ring is designed for semi-permanent connection of equipment on the harness (lanyard for example). Its round shape ensures optimal functioning in all directions. It has a wide opening that allows installation of ropes with sewn terminations.
