Safe & Easy Release of Ropes Under Tension 

The Constrictor® Textile Rope Clutch uses a non-aggressive friction locking system to securely hold halyards, sheets & control lines, while allowing for simple, precise and safe release under the heaviest of loads.

Using a textile sock, the clutch employs a fibre to fibre contact which not only extends the life of your ropes over traditional metal cam clutches but also eliminates the need for expensive Dyneema sheething and additional core splicing.

The Constrictor® is up to 30% lighter and 35% stronger than a classic jamming clutch and the tension applied increases the efficiency of the friction system. 

To aid installation, the base features a slotted hole that can be aligned with the fixing points of previous clutches, avoiding the need to re-drill.

Safely Release Under Load
The line can quickly and easily be released under load without the need of a winch, simply by pulling the Dyneema® control lanyard. This can be an important safety consideration in situations where immediate release is required.

Remote Release System
The Constrictor® control lanyard can be extended to provide remote release, making it ideal for applications such as mast-head mounted halyard to eliminate mast compression loads and halyard creep.
