The STEIN DJANGO Foot Ascender has been designed in partnership with ISC following extensive feedback from industry professionals requesting a more robust product. Durability and Functionality were paramount during the development process! Utilising tried & tested geometry to provide a smooth upward movement and positive engagement on the rope. Features & Benefits Cam-face: The DJANGO unique Stainless Steel cam allows positive engagement on the rope for a firm and reliable grip, with minimal wear to the sheath. Spring Tension: The cam-spring underwent extensive testing to ensure that it offered sufficient tension (so as not to easily ‘pop-off’), but still allow the device to move freely upwards without towing the trailing rope. Foot-operable Cam Lever: The foot-operable cam lever can be used to easily open and close (engage/disengage) the cam. The cam lever can also be hooked over the body of the device to hold the cam in the open (disengaged) position. Removable Cam Lever: The foot lever can easily be removed should the user prefer by removing an Allen Screw. Removing the foot lever allows a greater range of pivot of the cam. This in turn allows the user to deliberately remove the rope from the device, by using a kick technique, with only the leg that the device is mounted on. Abrasion Resistant Straps: The DJANGO mounting strap and protective under-foot sleeve are made from specifically developed webbing. Undergoing extensive abrasion testing and field test show superior durability in harsh conditions. Fully Adjustable Straps: The DJANGO is fully adjustable on both the horizontal and vertical straps, allowing the user to position the cam body on the boot, according to preference. Creep-free Webbing: The combination of the webbing design and the design of the mounting slots & buckles ensure that once adjusted to the desired position, (using the horizontal and vertical adjustment buckles), the DJANJO remains in position throughout use. Easy to Fit/Remove: The main Strap buckle is tightened by firmly pulling the webbing strap; and is released by pulling the toggle upwards in a one-handed action. The special design of the anti-slip buckle prevents unwanted strap loosening during use.
