Multi-functional energy absorbing device. Screamers will provide added protection in climbing and rescue situations. Screamers not only absorb energy directly because of the stitch ripping effect, they also allow your rope to absorb more energy from the fall by increasing the time interval of the fall. Screamers can reduce shock loading in any rescue system.

The standard Screamer can effectively reduce peak loads by 3-4kN in any climbing or rescue system. YATES original Screamers were first developed over ten years ago, YATES has since developed numerous variations on the “Screamer” design for use in Aerospace, Military and explosive testing for the deceleration of objects.

Screamers were originally designed to be used on less than ideal climbing protection such as small nuts, old 1/4" bolts, snow anchors or marginal protection. Yates has determined that the most effective activation for a standard screamer to be >2 kN (550 lbf) for climbing related situations.

When the Screamer activates, the action of the stitch ripping produces a loud tearing sound, indicating the system has reached the activation point of the Screamer(>2 kN). The activation point of a Screamer is consistently repeatable to +- 5% accuracy. (Screamers are very useful in documenting maximum loads in a given situation, such as their use in Rescue.) Screamers can be combined in series to double or triple the total absorption. Screamers can also be “ganged” to increase activation force and absorption.

  • Activation: >1.5kN
  • Reduction in system peak loading 1.5-2kN
  • Runner Strength: 7kN "use on extremely marginal aid placements only"
  • Colours vary
