Klemheist Friction Hitch in Arboriculture
Uses: The Klemheist is similar in action to the Prusik. It grips the rope reliably when weight is applied, and releases freely. The Klemheist is generally considered a smoother running hitch than the Prusik with the added advantage that it can be tied using a piece of webbing if required. In addition to a standard Ddrt set-up, the Klemheist is often used in various rigging applications, such as forming spider legs for balancing, or tensioning speedlines. The Klemheist is an excellent choice for using when footlocking up a doubled line
Suggested Cordage Size: 10mm on 11-13mm host line.
