CMC created the Pick-Off Strap so that a rescuer could quickly connect to the victim and then adjust the strap to the desired length. Our Pick-Off Strap works well for positioning the victim for a lowering or rappel-based pick-off, or for an assisted rappel. We added a loop to the end for a more positive grip when pulling to adjust. Our strong 1-3/4 inch web improves long-term durability, especially where the strap threads through the buckle. Depending on how the buckle is loaded, it will begin to slip between 15-20 kN (3,500-4,500 lbf). Tying off the buckle will increase the strength. The integrated Web Keeper™ allows the strap to be carried on a gear sling or harness without tangling or getting caught.
