DMM Sidewinder

Is it a swivel or is it a captive eye connector? In fact, it’s both. The Sidewinder is a directional connector with an integral swivel. Essential in applications when there is a need to manage spin, rotate the load relative to the anchor or simply to minimise lanyard tangles. The Sidewinder is often used as a connector on guided fall arresters as it can be captive on a system, allows rotation by the user and is quick, easy and secure when connected.

  • Captive eye for permanent connection – Sometimes, it is essential for a connector to stay in the correct orientation or to be permanently attached to a system. The DMM captive eye connectors, with their textile-friendly attachment holes, can be stitched into a rope or webbing loop, or swaged directly onto the cable. They provide predictable direction of load and total security as the connector cannot be removed or misaligned.
  • Aggressive loading groove forces load into the correct place
  • Keylock clean nose for snag-free connection – 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.
