Unlike conventional clutches the Constrictor® system does not crush the rope between two metal surfaces. Instead, the loaded rope is held securely in a textile sleeve, itself attached to a base unit. The rope runs freely through the sleeve in one direction, but is gripped instantly when running out in the opposite direction. This patented "constrictor effect", provides greater holding power as the load increases.

FEATURES
Stronger and lighter
Twice the holding power and a third of the weight of conventional rope clutches.

Release Under Load
The line can easily be released under load without the use of a winch simply by pulling the lanyard.

Remote Release System:
The Dyneema® lanyard can be extended for remote release; for example, to lock a halyard or reefing line to reduce spar compression and minimise rope creep.

Structural integration
The Constrictor® is also available in a version suitable for structurally integrated installations. Instead of the notched alloy base unit, the sleeve is supplied with an alloy mounting collar that can be built into a suitably reinforced bulkhead or a customised base fitting.

Non destructive
The textile sleeve closes like a constrictor on the line. The extraordinary grip is the result of fibre-to-fibre contact that is far less aggressive than a traditional metal cam, and much more effective.
