Introducing the all-new CLUTCH, the latest evolution in rescue and rope access hardware that enables the technical rope professional to do more with less. This multi-purpose device was designed and engineered in collaboration by two companies with a collective 90 year history in rope management under heavy loads: CMC, a company with roots in rescue and rope access, and Harken Industrial, a manufacturing company with roots in high performance sailing. Designed for intuitive, efficient operation, ease of use and optimal control, the CLUTCH is suited to a multitude of rigging operations.
“The CLUTCH is a precision piece of hardware that is intuitive and rescuer friendly. A lot can happen in half a second and the smart design and engineering of the CLUTCH clearly stacks the odds in the rescuer’s favor.”
– Tom Pendley, Former Deputy Chief of Ops, Peoria, AZ Fire Dept
“The CLUTCH changes the game by integrating multiple rope tools into one. Rope access training and operations will be able to implement the CLUTCH for the most efficient and effective rigging and rescue plans, making this device a key piece of kit within the industry- asked for by name.”
