carabiner brake - a system of carabiners and ropes, intended mainly for rescue work, when it is necessary to ensure the etching of loaded ropes by one or two people.

Any braking device consists of a "frame" and a "crossbar" against which the rope is rubbed. The rope "enters" the "frame", goes around the "crossbar", "leaves" the "frame". In our case, the "frame" will be one carabiner, and the "crossbar" - the other.

A carabiner is attached to the point of insurance (Fig. 44). He will act as a guide.

The second carabiner is fastened on it and muffled (Fig. 45). This will be a "frame" carbine.

A rope folded in half is passed through it (Fig. 46).

A carabiner is fastened into the loop formed, it is also fastened to the outgoing end of the rope (the one that will leave the brake (Fig. 47). This third carabiner plays the role of a "crossbar".

The carabiner brake is ready (Fig. 48). After assembling the carabiner brake, all carabiners must be coupled.

Attention! Pay attention to the location of the latches of the carabiners!!! It is possible to press the rope to the carabiner couplings during its movement. The moving rope must not unmuff the carabiners.

If the insurers let go of the rope, it will go down under load. To prevent this from happening, the cargo rope is insured with a grasping knot (a grasping knot from a double cord is used on a double rope), which is knitted after (along the rope) a carabiner brake (Fig. 49).

Grasping in the process of work is regularly moved to the carabiner brake. However, if the spotters make a mistake and the grasper is delayed, then it will not be easy to correct the situation. Either you need to have the assembled chain hoist ready, or fasten the grasping one not directly to the insurance point, but to the emergency system (to the chain hoist (Fig. 41) or to the loaded rope etching scheme (Fig. 38).

Artificial leather for touch emulation 15.04.2024

In a modern technology world where distance is becoming increasingly commonplace, maintaining connection and a sense of closeness is important. Recent developments in artificial skin by German scientists from Saarland University represent a new era in virtual interactions. German researchers from Saarland University have developed ultra-thin films that can transmit the sensation of touch over a distance. This cutting-edge technology provides new opportunities for virtual communication, especially for those who find themselves far from their loved ones. The ultra-thin films developed by the researchers, just 50 micrometers thick, can be integrated into textiles and worn like a second skin. These films act as sensors that recognize tactile signals from mom or dad, and as actuators that transmit these movements to the baby. Parents' touch to the fabric activates sensors that react to pressure and deform the ultra-thin film. This ... >>

The attractiveness of caring men 14.04.2024

The stereotype that women prefer "bad boys" has long been widespread. However, recent research conducted by British scientists from Monash University offers a new perspective on this issue. They looked at how women responded to men's emotional responsibility and willingness to help others. The study's findings could change our understanding of what makes men attractive to women. A study conducted by scientists from Monash University leads to new findings about men's attractiveness to women. In the experiment, women were shown photographs of men with brief stories about their behavior in various situations, including their reaction to an encounter with a homeless person. Some of the men ignored the homeless man, while others helped him, such as buying him food. A study found that men who showed empathy and kindness were more attractive to women compared to men who showed empathy and kindness. ... >>
