Rope Anchor Plates
An anchor plate also referred to as a termination plate or rigging plate is a piece of hardware, typically made from milled aluminum, which creates a tie-off point on ropes which do not have a factory created eye. The anchor plate creates a way to attach a rope to a structure or load without relying on a knot.
Anchor plates are beneficial because they prevent the need for tying a knot in a rope. Knots, while they may seem strong, severely weaken a rope and can cause other issues like shortened life span. If you do find yourself having to tie a knot in a rope, please refer to manufacturer specifications on how much the knot will affect the strength of the rope.
