Fall Rated Climbing Hardware
When it comes to fall protection the hardware you choose is extremely important. When your life's on the line you want to know that the gear you are using is top quality. Our Gear Experts® have spent years sourcing the best hardware.
Our fall protection hardware selection includes separator bars, snap hooks, and rebar hooks.
Let’s start by looking at certifications. Like carabiners, snaphooks, rebar hooks, and separator bars must meet the ANSI Z359.12-2009 standard. This standard requires that the major access point must have a strength of 5,000 pounds. The gate face, sideload, and minor access strength must be at least 3,600 pounds.
Separator bars are great for positioning and providing relief on the hips and waist during a long day of climbing. Snaphooks and rebar hooks server similar purposes to carabiners and come in a range of different sizes. Which of these devices is right for you? That depends on the job at hand.
