RopeGlide™ Low Friction Rings: Low weight, low friction, low price. Ronstan’s RopeGlide™ Low Friction Rings are used for a variety of applications including lead rings, redirects, remote retrieved anchors, and safely lowering loads. Perfect for all rigging and sling setups and light enough to forget it’s on your saddle, RopeGlide™ Rings have proven their worth in the arborist’s arsenal and are fast becoming an increasingly indispensable tree rigging accessory.
Soft Attachment Snatch Blocks: The Dyneema® SK99 soft shackle provides an extremely strong and flexible means of attachment, allowing use in tight spaces or where a straight lead attachment angle is not possible. Secured with a titanium dog bone, the soft shackle is easily opened when attaching or detaching the block. With the soft shackle open, a gentle rotation of the fully machined, anodised aluminium cheek plates opens the head of the block so it can be fitted to a standing line. The wide sheave is designed to accommodate a large range of rope diameters. Ronstan’s Soft Attachment Snatch Blocks are a versatile tool, light enough to keep on your person and strong enough to handle any arborist rigging application that might arise while working at height.
Snatch Blocks: A traditional alternative to the Soft Attachment Snatch Blocks, Ronstan’s snatch blocks are a tough and reliable solution for temporary leads and line deflection. Available in a variety of sizes, the trunnion snap shackle attachment provides 360° and side-to-side articulation for correct line lead in restricted situations.
The ability to load or unload lines from the block while it is still attached to its anchor point make this a valuable and versatile arborist rigging block. The cheek’s latch mechanism operates independent from the snap shackle attachment.
Rope Handling Gloves: Ronstan’s famous “Sticky Race Gloves” are specifically designed for handling dynamic lines, providing impressive grip (even when wet) and protection for your hands. Available in both full finger and short finger styles for added dexterity. Durable, synthetic leather with double aramid stitching in high wear areas.
Pre-Spliced Block & Tackle Kits: A quick rigging solution creating a 4:1 mechanical advantage over a short distance, Ronstan’s Pre-Spliced Block & Tackle kits feature high quality pulleys, strong polyester double braided rope, and a snap shackle attachment for quick and simple deployment. Working loads range from 660 lbs to 1240 lbs. Shop Pre-Spliced Block & Tackle Kits
