DMM Aero HMS Locksafe – DMMA367
A classic HMS shaped connector. The Aero HMS is elegant, voluminous and simple to use in most working at height applications. The 13mm diameter, rope running radius is extremely kind to textiles and the rounded basket allows centring of ropes and devices.
HMS connectors are pear shaped and often have similar characteristics to ovals in how they deal with loaded components, i.e. they also allow devices and connectors to self-centre. Moreover, the extended basket allows for additional component connection. Knots in a system such as an Italian hitch can rotate easily between taking in and paying out (even with larger diameter ropes). In general, HMS connectors are slightly oversized to accommodate the added volume of bigger ropes and to feel secure in a gloved hand.
DMM’s patented ‘Taperlock’ closing mechanism increases gate push-in and cross gate strength using a special flared profile on the nose of the carabiner, as well as allowing a snag free connection for your ropes, slings and devices.
