The Aspiring Anchor Chain is a compact, hard-wearing safety tether that can be securely clipped to various lengths.

This versatile tool also offers a range of other uses, including as a foot loop when ascending, a temporary back-up for an anchor, to hang a pack or rope bag while abseiling, or to extend your abseil device.

Made from Dyneema, which delivers exceptional strength and abrasion resistance in a lightweight and compact form, each loop is fully-rated to a breaking strength of 18kN.

The addition of a half-twist in the sewn loop that attaches to the harness ensures a compact and clean girth hitch.

With strong, secure, individually rated loops, the Aspiring Anchor Chain can be safely used in a range of rigging and rescue settings.

This style of personal anchor chain is recommended over traditional daisy chains, which can fail at low loads if clipped between two loops

Why you should use an Anchor Chain instead of a Daisy Chain:

Anchor chains were developed in response to safety issues with traditional daisy chains.

A daisy chain is a single loop of webbing, with small loops created along its length by bar tacking the webbing together at various intervals. While the full loop of webbing that makes up a daisy chain is fully rated, often to 22kN, the intermediate bar tacks can fail at as little as 3kN.

There have been a number of accidents caused by people clipping a carabiner between two loops of a daisy chain.

Anchor chains remove this risk by utilising independent, fully-rated loops. This delivers a secure, full-strength connection regardless of which loop you clip into.
