DMM Captain Throwing Hook

Captain (only)
Captain Kit

The Captain is a self-orientating, high strength throwing hook that is used as a positioning aid. It has been designed to increase stability and create work positioning options during complex jobs requiring repositioning. The shackle reduces torsional friction and allows the hook to pivot onto any anchor up to 90mm in diameter to achieve reliable location. In this way, the Captain allows you to use remote anchors to traverse the workspace in a controlled manner.

Once the anchor has been located, DMM's high quality engineering ensures the Captain achieves a rated strength of 18kN (dependent on anchor quality). Clever design allows the device to be efficiently racked when the job is done to minimise chances of snagging.

Lanyard Management Clips 3-Pack (Assorted Colors)

Lanyard Management Clips 3-Pack (Assorted Colors)


3-packs of plastic lanyard clips, ideal for managing the slack on your tree-climbing lanyards up to 1/2”. These can be installed on the gear loops of many harnesses, such as the treeMOTION, Sequoia, and many Buckingham harnesses. A pair of needlenose pliers can be used to help install the clip. If your harness does not have cord gear loops, you can always install the clip on your own with some 5-6mm accessory cord. Once installed, the clips give you a quick place to snap the loose end of your lanyard to get that slack out of the way.
