yellow safety stopper
This item comes with high postage fees for us, so unfortunately, we cannot handle carts containing only stoppers, in small quantities. We would then be in deficit compared to our actual effective costs (production + real fee we pay for shipping). For this reason, we ask you to add stoppers to your cart only if the value of your cart is already above 50 EUR. No problem to add only stoppers to your cart, but then you will need to order minimum 4 stoppers per single order. Thank you for your understanding!
Strong and reliable, our new OCTOPUS safety stopper enhances your safety as it efficiently prevents your lanyard from getting stuck. The almost-flat upper part gives a clean stop to your carabiner, while the lower part, with its conical shape, allows your lanyard cable to be “expelled” towards the outside, with no grip to get it stuck. Following our prototype tests, we chose a diameter wider than a tennis ball’s (75mm vs 65mm). Finally, the bright fluorescent yellow color makes it more visible.
It works perfectly with a 10 to 12mm rope. It is possible to use it with smaller ropes down to 8mm.
Regarding the mounting process, the stopper is divided in two parts. A simple knot is placed in its center, and 3 stainless steel screws (standard cross-head) make it easy to finish putting it in place. It is made out of ABS, a strong plastic used for example to make LEGOs: after all, we are just big kids playing in the water!
The new OCTOPUS safety stopper: a simple and efficient design for an unbeatable quality! Designed and tested by Swiss record holder Pascal Berger (-131m VWT ).
What you need:
