The Ring Pull Prussik provides a simple fast rope grab for hauling on a line in river rescue.
6mm red prussik cord
6mm stainless ring
The device is made of 6mm 16/16 braid red polyester cord which is wrapped three times around a 6mm marine grade stainless ring and secured with a double fisherman’s knot.
There is a rubber rung holding the three wraps tight on the ring and it pre-sets the position of the Fisherman’s knot to be approx 10cm from the ring.
Overall length of the tied cord loop is 33cm.
The cord is wrapped around the ring three times which spreads the load and makes it almost twice as strong as a standard prussik.
You can get hold of the Whetman Equipment Ring Pull Prussik from any good canoe/kayak retailer. If they don’t have them ask them to get them in!
