The Hang Free Attachment System (H.F.A.S) Is our brand new patent pending attachment system that has solved every issue with climbing attachment methods. The Hang Free Attachment System is an AmSteel®-Blue Scwabisch Hitch with a Spliced In 1.75mm Dyneema Cord Prusik Tender. This allows for true one hand operation. With the Tender spliced directly into the Schwabisch Hitch, this allows for only one loop to be placed around the versa button comparatively to our previous “Deluxe USA Mod’s” which had a separate tender that would slide down the main line requiring you to either have to hold on to both the Prusik and Tender or go fishing for the tender at the end of your main line.
Now the H.F.A.S. Is a much sleeker, smoother, and easier to use design. It functions as a normal friction hitch would but also allows for one hand cinching to the tree by simply pulling the tag end of the main line. With the tender spliced directly into the schwabisch hitches loop there is a lot less going on with the whole system. We sent the H.F.A.S. out to numerous different hunters for testing and feedback and not only have we gotten perfect feedback, but all of the hunters testing the H.F.A.S. have said it’s the easiest attachment method they have ever used. Our goal is to simplify the hunting and climbing process in general. With various new mods that have come out in recent weeks requiring numerous wraps around the tree, numerous prusiks on one line, and a handful of other confusing, time consuming, and overcomplicated attachment methods, we have simplified everything as much as possible.
1/8 Full Bury H.F.A.S.- 320lb working load. This size is by far our most popular for climbing sticks, the 3/16 size is much better size for platforms although if you get a 1/8 that is long enough to wrap the tree/platform twice it will work for your platform just as well as the 3/16.
