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
Note: Each Anchor Chain is constructed with loops of different colours. If you have a specific colour preference, include a note at the checkout and will will try to provide one that features your preferred colour/s.

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.
