The Click Up Plus improves on the original version, with better ergonomics and geometry which allows for quicker and smoother paying out of the rope and more comfortable top rope belays. As with the original, the Plus can arrest a fall with only the free end of the rope being held with the braking hand. When the fall has been caught, slight pressure on the device allows lowering. A new V-Proof system reduces the chances of incorrectly handling the rope whilst braking. If a climber falls, the V-shaped angle of separation between the two sections of the rope must be maintained. A reduction in the value of this angle can affect the proper functioning of the device when locking the rope. The system consists of a mobile partition that facilitates the activation of the assisted-braking system. If during the fall of the climber the hand side of the rope comes into contact with the partition, this pressure contributes to the rotation of the device and to the consequent locking on the rope.
The Click Up Plus is supplied and must be used with the specific HMS carabiner Concept SGL HC. This carabiner features wear resistant anodizing and ACL system that prevents the possibility of minor-axis cross loading.
Suitable for military and tactical use.
