The Kootenay HX from SMC is the most advanced Knot Passing Pulley (KPP) on the market. This is an entirely new and more compact design and lives up to its “HX” – High Performance name as the lightest KPP on the market which is UL Certified to NFPA General Use.
Durable, strong and efficient… This versatile piece of equipment is essential for the rescue professional gear cache.
Light weight aluminum side plates are used in conjunction with a high-strength aluminum sheave. Sealed ball bearings provide optimal efficiency and help to reduce the performance-robbing resistance that is inherent in most multiple component systems.
The primary carabiner hole accepts numerous rescue carabiners. Secondary carabiner holes are provided for use with tax or belay lines. Two quick-release pins may be used to “lock off” the sheave when a high strength tie-off is required. Adding to its versatility, the Kootenay HX may also serve as an edge roller for rope protection.
