Important Information on Rope

Due to variations in rope applications, rope conditions, environmental factors and the degree of risk to life or property damage, it is not realistic to make specific recommendations as to the exact loads any given rope can handle.

It is the users' responsibility to completely understand the safe use and operation of a rope used for any specific or general task. The user needs to be aware of all environmental, load or other variable factors that affect the safe use of rope. Failure to do so can cause severe personal injury or death as well as property and/or environmental damage. The user of this rope assumes all such risks.

In addition, any safety training or skill training required for the safe use of rope in any capacity is the sole responsibility of the user. Keep reading below and thoroughly to understand....
