BoltBuster - Horizontal climbing hanger break test in slow motion

Horizontal Fixe hangers for climbing lower offs broke at 20.74kn, 21.22kn, 20.20kn when pulled in shear. We tested zinc plated hangers but if you install these outside please use stainless steel found at Please don't bolt if you don't have to and if you do, use something that will last a long long time. with Bobby Hutton

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
