CAPTO Now Available!

CAPTO™ is an intuitive device that combines a multi-functional rope grab, high-efficiency pulley, and integrated becket for easy hauling and ascending. Built around an innovative V-groove Cam, CAPTO is designed to handle rescue loads while providing force-limiting overload protection. CAPTO is coming this Fall in a gray model for 10.5 – 11 mm rope and a red model for 12.5 – 13 mm rope.

We will release more educational content on CAPTO in the coming weeks! Sign up for our newsletter to get the latest.



  • Combines a rope grab, pulley, and becket in a compact device for hauling & ascending.
  • Incorporates a force-limiting V-groove Cam designed to provide overload protection.
  • Installs quickly on tensioned and un-tensioned lines, no need for knots or hitches.
  • Opens one-handed and gives simultaneous access to components for rapid rigging.
  • Builds efficient M/A systems and smoothly progresses from a 3:1 to a 5:1 M/A.
  • Releases and resets easily, even after high loading, making it ideal for rescues.
  • Travels down rope in vertical systems, resetting and maximizing the haul field.
  • Allows installation of an accessory loop for remote resets and device stowage.

from the field

“CAPTO uniquely combines a rope grab, pulley, and becket in a single device capable of slipping to dissipate energy. It allows the technical rescuer to rapidly transition from a lower to a raise with the application of only CAPTO. CAPTO is a game changer in rope rescue and can also be used in the fields of confined space rescue, rope access, or any discipline requiring a rope grab.”

-Wayne Chapman, CMC School Director
