All the extension results from this testing are absolutely bogus for most climbing and rescue situations. They are getting 18kN+ loads because there is nothing dynamic in the system.

A mass should NEVER be directly attached to an anchor that can extend. Either ensure that there a dynamic attachment or that the anchor has absolutely minimal extension.


Thats I cannot fault the equalisation testing. Given the nature of this debate everybody will take their own personal slant on this study.

Personally after looking at the load sharing ability of the equalette vs the cordalette I fail to see a good reason why I should use an equalette. I've said it before K.I.S.S.
