The CMC Variable Anchor Strap is configured as a mechanical advantage system; 2:1 with a change of direction or 3:1 depending on which end is the “load” and which end is the “anchor”. It’s relative efficiency is, of course, very poor since it is webbing running through D-rings and a buckle, so we’re not going to use it to haul a load up a cliff. We can, however, use it as a type of ratchet strap for positioning a load. A number of these Variable Anchor Straps are great when used to lock an object securely in place, a particularly useful technique in all types of rope access work.
We recommend using a Delta Maillon connector to prevent possible tri-axial loading of a carabiner when used in a basket configuration.
