The V-Grip is an Antal patented system for rope locking. It works with a pressure exerted on 3 sides of the line with a higher friction and, consequently, with a lower pressure, in order not to damage manoeuvres.
The V-Grip system has the following characteristics:
- Pressure on three sides. Unlike the usual flat cam, V-Grip is fitted with a V-shaped cam that improves the holding strength without damaging the line cover.
- Load distribution. The curved base-V-Cam pair increases the bearing surface, preventing the load from being concentrated at a critical point.
- Line retrieval with closed lever. Line retrieval can be achieved with the lever closed. The line stops automatically in the new position with no slippage.
- Emergency opening. The line can be released under load without the use of a winch because the Antal mechanism guarantees easy opening even under heavy conditions. A complete range with 7 different models for lines from 6 to 22 mm.
