Karver KJ Jammers
Unlike traditional jammers that squeeze
ropes between 2 jaws, Karver KJ jammer envelops the rope evenly around its
cover with 3 jaws. 3 jaws move inside a cone to squeeze and hold the rope
without making it wear. The load experienced does not matter; the rope
stays in shape and does not slide.
The line at the bottom is used to close the
jammer. When you have a halyard at the desired tension pull it and the
halyard is held fast. To release the halyard the twin wire rope
handle can be used up to 200KG load. Above that you would put the
halyard on a winch to release the load.
The conical KJ can be taken off its base,
which can then be bonded into a casing on the deck or in the mast.
