Rigging kit storage

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Anyone got any good ideas for a way to carry around and store rigging kit? I want to keep a porta wrap style lowering device, 16mm rope, couple of pulleys, strops slings etc.

 

A bag or holdall doesn't seem up to coping with a stein rc2000 as they're pretty heavy / pointy / bulky. What else do people use?

I’ve yet to see a perfect solution to this.

I carry my bollard, straps etc. separately to my ‘normal’ rigging kit in a tough plastic rectangular tub with rope handles, but it’s a pita to carry any distance.

Black diamond haul bags/arbortec cobra style ones. Can fit rope + portawrap in them easy. 
Same as Mark my bollard/winch live in boxes and they’re annoying to carry. But they always will be. 
No point packing a portawrap with a 16mm rope really. If you actually need that rope then you need a bigger device. And it probably won’t park or carry very pleasantly.

Thanks all. The teufelberger buckets look just the job but an awful lot of money.

Scaffolders tool buckets might work perhaps?


like this but bigger

The Leach’s SWL 100KG lifting buckets are extremely tough and durable, ideal for hoisting...

Maybe I’m a bit poverty but I use old horse feed sacks for ropes and find the bollard is big and ugly enough to not need sticking in a box

60 litres | 75 x 40 x 29 cm Plastic Tray 60L. Tough plastic tray with handles.

these are good with the waterproof canvas lid, can happily carry a full rigging kit on your shoulder.
A rigging rope will run out under the lid if it’s wet and as a added bonus they can be up turned over Mrs miggings shrub so it looks like you agree the manky thing is a excellent example!

 

cheap as well.

Peasant!

 

A loose bollard is a total clusterfuck waiting to happen.

 

Just chuck one, straps, a loopie and various crabs on top of everything else and see what happens.
