  1. Brilliant response cheers. I agree and couldn’t say it any better. I work for a company of 10 employees that works to the industry best practice and are keen to demonstrate this. While everyone understands they can risk asses themselves out of 2 lines. I’m looking for a way to practically satisfy the criteria, without cluttering up your bridge too much and not having to tend 2 devices. Potentially the DMM buddy. All posts have been useful thank you
  2. So, it’s here. The best practice has changed much to everyone’s dismay. U.K. arbs as stated by the HSE need to have 2 line attachment while climbing. Its a pain in the arse and more unsafe in my opinion. My question is regarding the use of a fall arrest system such as a DMM Buddy as a second to your main climbing system. It seems to satisfy the criteria. Is it ok? Can anyone shed any light or offer a counter argument on its use? Cheers
  3. Couldn’t agree more. Splices can sometimes be a squeeze through some rings but you can get different sizes. In all honesty just try some. They’re not massively expensive. Obviously the pre made are more but they’re easy enough to make up yourself. Have a few for different uses. Pulleys for lifting always 🤙🏻
