A very simple rescue tool.
Green Krab Stick fits to the Kong HMS Screwgate
& DMM HMS Autolock
Orange Krab Stick fits the Kong Paddle Carabin
It assists to contact in difficult access situations.
It enables a reach contact to be achieved.
It saves time & reduces risk as the alternative maybe to put someone in the water to make contact.
It could be the element that makes the difference between a successful outcome or having to abandon a rescue.
The Krab Stick simply converts a karabiner into
a hook by wedging in the gate. On contact the force applied releases the Krab Stick thus closing the gate & securing the contact.
Setting the Krab Stick
To set the Krab Stick place the male end into the recess of the karabiner gate and wedge the smiling end onto the hook of the karabiner with the curved side facing out and the logo side facing inwards. Fix the cord onto the opposite bar of the karabiner and wind in the slack.
1. Opposing Webbing Lines
Connect the karabiner to two opposing Python 5m webbing slings and direct it into position using
tension of opposing forces - very useful for longer reaches over water and possibly have tension operators from opposing banks.
