SMC Pulleys – Product Overview

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

SMC 3″ PMP (Double or Single)
The unique shape of SMC’s aluminum side plates allow the efficient use of Prusik hitches as a belay or progress capture device. Constructed with a 3” diameter sheave running on a high efficiency ball bearing. Low profile fasteners help eliminate the possibility of the pulley snagging. Pulley will accommodate up to 13 mm rope.

SMC 2″ PMP (Double or Single)
This mid-sized PMP is the perfect choice for rigging with 11 mm (7/16”) rope or when you don’t have room for a 3” PMP. Pulley will accommodate up to 13 mm rope.

SMC Micro PMP (Double or Single)
Just the thing for smaller ropes and lighter loads, SMC’s Micro PMP’s are ideal for building a mini haul rig or anywhere that a compact lightweight system is needed. Double version is designed with a becket to accommodate compound and complex pulley systems. Max rope diameter 13 mm.

SMC Advance Tech HX Pulley
The new Advance Tech HX is ideal for all rescue applications where a small mechanical advantage system is being used. The HX is a double pulley with an integrated cam that provides immediate progress capture.

SMC Kootenay Knot Passing Pulley
The Kootenay HX from SMC is the most advanced Knot Passing Pulley on the market. This is an entirely new and more compact design and lives up to its “HX” (High Strength) name as the lightest, strongest, most efficient, and durable pulley of its kind available. Sealed ball bearings provide optimal efficiency and help to reduce the performance-robbing resistance that is inherent in most multiple component systems. Adding to its versatility, the Kootenay HX may also serve as an edge roller for rope protection.
