Vermin Freight/Cargo Hook?
« on: October 06, 2011, 04:00:30 pm »
Having recently tagged a fairly heavy bag with some success I'd like to improve my setup.

Anyone got one accumulating dust they feel like parting with? 

Second best would be a photo (with a sense of scale) from which to fabricate my own. 

Whatever design I could come up with I figure that guy had it a little more dialed than me.

Much appreciated.

I'll scan one and post it. It's on my to-do list right behind getting Paul his gear sling.

That was ridiculously quick.  Thank you gentlemen.  I would have expected a deeper basket...

Thanks, Skullybro.


Vo, the cargo is attached to the lower hole, the tag or haul line to the upper. It hangs on a convenient spot where (hopefully it won't hang up on anything when pulled from above. You prolly guessed all that. There are multiple applications for this type of gear--rack tagging (a tad overkill for the weight involved) and speed hauling are two. SH is generally for soloists and requires a third line to rap down while the haul line is rigged as normal for the haul except for the upper end of the haul line being clipped to the rapper. Rap down, the bag goes up. It's dangerous. Probably not worth doing unless one's really wired and on a route where no one else will be anywhere near the rig. I recommend against it in general.
