Click Up Plus
The Climbing Technology Click Up Plus is the amped up evolution of the original model, specifically designed for sport climbing whether you are indoors or out. It is lightweight, compact and will work with dynamic single ropes from 8.5-11mm diameter.
The Click Up Plus improves on the orginal with better ergonomics and geometry which allows for quicker and smoother paying out of rope and more comfortable top rope belays. A new V-Proof system also reduces the chances of incorrectly handling the rope whilst braking.
As with the original model the belayer can arrest a fall by only holding the free end of the rope with your braking hand. When your partners fall has been caught a slight pressure on the device allows lowering, just make sure to keep hold of the free end of the rope with your braking hand. The addition of the V-Proof system, which is a V shaped, tapered friction notch, means that effective belaying can be achieved even if the rope is installed incorrectly.
When belaying, some processes are critical (like taking-in and paying-out rope to the leader, or taking-in slack during top-roping) and, in the event of a fall, require the V-shaped angle of separation between the two sections of the rope to be maintained. A reduction in the value of this angle can affect the proper functioning of the device when locking the rope.
The V-Proof System, featured on Click Up Plus, reduces the chance of error due to an incorrect reduction of the V-angle between the two strands of the rope.
It consists of a mobile partition that facilitates the activation of the assisted-braking system. If during the fall of the climber the hand side of the rope comes into contact with the partition (Fig. 1), this pressure contributes to the rotation of the device and to the consequent locking on the rope (Fig. 2).
Caution: read carefully the device instructions before use.
The Click Up Plus is supplied and must be used together with the specific HMS carabiner CONCEPT SGL HC, with wear-resistant anodizing and ACL system that prevents the possibility of minor-axis cross-loading.
