Abstract: A connection device comprises a connector forming a ring with an open position and a closed position. A handle is fixed to the connector and has two extensions receiving a user's hands. The handle defines a tube extending in a first direction and a through hole arranged to pass through the tube perpendicularly to the first direction. A first end of a wire member forms a loop fixed to the connector in the tube. The second end of the wire member is fixed to the user. The connector passes through the through hole and the loop to fix the handle and the wire member to the connector.
Abstract: The roping harness comprises a belt and leg loops. The belt is formed by a first strip and a second strip separated so as to define a housing cavity housing at least one foam comfort pad. The first strip is an inner strip designed to come into contact with the user's back whereas the second strip is an outer strip of the belt. The first strip and second strip are fixed to one another by at least one resistance strap mechanically fixed to a suspension point. The housing cavity comprises at least one opening so that the foam comfort pad is removable from the housing cavity.
Abstract: A rescue device includes a pulley includes a support flange with two rotation shafts mounted salient and extending in a first direction. Two sheaves are mounted rotatable around two rotation shafts to define a running line of a cable. Two flanges are mounted rotatable between a first position and a second position. A first blocker is configured to present a first position blocking the first flange in the closed position and a second position allowing rotation of the first flange. A second blocker is configured to present a first position blocking the second flange in the closed position and a second position allowing rotation of the second flange. The second blocker is independent from the first blocker.

Abstract: The quick link has a body defining an open link with two opposite ends. The body comprises a straight portion separating two curved portions. A locking ring is fitted rotating and sliding with respect to the body with a closed position closing the link and an open position where the quick link is open. A shutter is fitted removable with respect to the body. The shutter defines an attachment means fixing the shutter to the straight portion and a blocking system fixing the shutter to the locking ring. The attachment means and blocking system are formed by a ring or a hook. The attachment means and blocking system allow rotation of the shutter with respect to the body when the locking ring is in the open position and prevent rotation of the shutter when the locking ring is in the closed position.
Abstract: A headlamp with—a headband; a light source located at the front of the headband is presented. The headlamp has a load balancing device with two strands. The first strand has a first end (A) and a second end (B) respectively attached on one left front fixing point and one left rear fixing point of said headband. The second strand has a first end (A?) and a second end (B?) respectively attached on one right front fixing point and one right rear fixing point of said headband. There is an element wherein the first and second strands are thread up so as to bring closer the two strands at one common point C.

Abstract: The carabiner comprises a body associated with a gate able to rotate on a first end of the body between a closed position and an open position of the carabiner. A confinement element is configured to form a first stop and a second stop salient from the body. The confinement element is fitted removable with respect to the body. The confinement element is fixed to the body by a first fastener and a second fastener. A joining part connects the first fastener to the second fastener to define the space separating the first stop and the second stop. The joining part is pressed against the body. The body, the gate and the joining part define a carabiner with a single central ring.
Abstract: A gear sling device comprises a body in the form of a hook with an opening and a gate fixed to the body. The gate is fitted movable with respect to the body between a first position closing the opening and a second position leaving the opening open. The body and gate define a ring. A loop is designed to fix the body to a belt of a harness or to a strap. The loop is partly bounded by the body. The gear sling device comprises a wire-like element fitted sliding inside a through hole passing through the body. The wire-like element extends from the through hole to a pressing area where a first end of the wire-like element pulls on the body. A clamp is configured to block the wire-like element and to define the size of the loop.

Abstract: A protective helmet includes a head support fixed to a crown. The head support forms a U shape with a frontal part fixed to the frontal part of the crown. The two ends of the head support are fixed to the side walls of the crown via two attachment points. First adjustment parts adjust the length of the head support between the two attachment points and the distance separating it from the frontal part of the crown. A neckband is fixed to the occipital part of the crown and is fitted in movable manner. Second adjustment parts of the neckband adjust the distance between the neckband and the frontal part of the head support.
Abstract: Lanyard having at least one belaying strap connected with a swivel connection which comprises two assembly parts able to rotate with respect to one another with a relative rotational movement. The two assembly parts of tubular shape are engaged coaxially in one another, the first outer part having a larger diameter than that of the second inner part. At least one of the parts is provided with a slot or hole for fitting securing means designed to secure the two parts in rotation in the engaged state. Applications: safety and securing lanyards for via ferrata, caving, mountaineering.
Abstract: The harness includes a belt, a pair of thigh loops and first and second lateral attachment points. At least the first lateral attachment point includes a connector fixed to the belt. The connector is provided with a body defining: at least one pass-through opening inside which an attachment element to the belt passes, a connection ring distinct from the at least one pass-through opening, the connection ring being closed by means of a closing element fitted in removable manner. The closing element and the body define at least one through hole distinct from the at least one pass-through opening and from the connection ring. The closing element separate the connection ring and the at least one through hole.
