Sidewinder

Is it a swivel or is it a captive eye connector? In fact, it's both. The Sidewinder is a directional connector with an integral swivel. Essential in applications when there is a need to manage spin, rotate the load relative to the anchor or simply to minimise lanyard tangles. The Sidewinder is often used as a connector on guided fall arresters as it can be captive on a system, allows rotation by the user and is quick, easy and secure when connected.

Sometimes it is essential for a connector to stay in the correct orientation or to be permanently attached to a system. The DMM captive eye connectors, with their textile friendly attachment holes, can be stitched into a rope or webbing loop, or swaged directly onto cable. They provide predicable direction of load and total security as the connector cannot be removed or misaligned.

Kwiklock
Kwiklock - Auto-locking gate requiring two separate actions to open. Kwiklock gates are suitable when auto-locking gates are a necessity, but rigging systems are relatively static and anchor points are easy to monitor.
ANSI Kwiklock
ANSI Kwiklock - A very strong auto-locking gate requiring two separate actions to open. Kwiklock gates are suitable when auto-locking gates are a necessity, but rigging systems are relatively static and anchor points are easy to monitor. ANSI
Kwiklock gates rate to a minimum 16kN in minor axis, side loading and gate face loading tests, and conform to ANSI Z359.12 (2009).
Locksafe
Locksafe - An auto-locking gate requiring three separate actions to open. Locksafe gates give extra security in complex rigging systems such as those featuring running ropes or remote anchor points.

Screwgate
Screwgate - Non auto-locking gate which requires two actions to open, and is easy to use with one hand. Screwgates are suitable in systems where anchor points can be easily monitored and are unlikely to be affected by running ropes.
