Function: Shock absorbing sling designed to reduce peak loads in any climbing system!! Multi-functional energy absorbing device.

- GearX.com

The new "Zipper" Screamer is designed for long falls with high fall factors. These type of falls occur usually within the first two or three protection placements that are run out. Ice climbing is a good example where the "Zipper" is exceptionally effective when used on the first few placements. The "Zipper" can effectively reduce peak loads by 6-8kN in any climbing system. Screamers and Zippers have proven to be very successful in reduceing loads to any anchor when it is stressed in exess of the activation force of the Screamer device. * When the Screamer activates, the action of the stitching ripping produces a load tearing sound, indicating the system has reached the activation point of the Screamer (>2 kN). The activation point of a Screamer is consistently repeatable to +- 5% accuracy. (Screamers are very useful in documenting maximum loads in a given situation, such is their use in Rescue.) Screamers can be combined in series and ganged up double or triple to increase the activation force or the total absorption. ZIPPER Screamer: Activation: >2kN Reduction in system peak loading 4-8kN Runner Strength:26kN Note that this item of climbing safety equipment is non-returnable.
