CMC Rescue

Our patented 3D™ locking-bar descender delivers the ultimate in safety, control and performance, in one compact and lightweight device. The 3D features two sliding bars for optimum friction control and efficiency. The horn design works well with 13 mm rope and smaller, making it easy to add or subtract friction as needed throughout the evolution. The frame dimensions allow for larger rescue-sized carabiners to be used without any contact or friction with the rope. The descender can be loaded or...
Our All-Weather Rope Log contains 20 rope log forms on heavy Rite-in-the-Rain™ paper. Ample space is provided to document critical lifeline information and log use and inspection. The cover includes instructions on using a rope log and on inspecting and washing lifelines. The loose-leaf, three-holepunched format allows the log to be used as a stand alone document or to be included in equipment binders.
A Classic CMC Innovation. A CMC original design that has withstood the test of time, our Anchor Plates keep the carabiners holding the different parts of your rescue system from jamming together. The hardware becomes easier to see, making safety checks more accurate. It can also keep you from clipping a carabiner into the wrong loop of the anchor web. For anchor systems, it makes an excellent collection point. We use the Anchor Plate in CMC Rope Rescue classes, which allows our students to set...
Anchor straps have a tough job, and see a lot of wear and tear. Over the years, we’ve learned that cuts and abrasion are the greatest threats to their safety and service life. To dramatically increase both, our Anchor Straps now feature two layers of the same durable mil-spec, resin-coated nylon web. Sewn by our highly skilled workers who make our rescue harnesses, our Anchor Straps feature forged steel D-rings individually proof loaded and sized for easy choker (girth-hitch) configuration when...
