The V-Grip is an Antal patented system for rope locking. It works with a pressure exerted on 3 sides of the line with a higher friction and, consequently, with a lower pressure, in order not to damage manoeuvres. The V-Grip system has the following characteristics:

  • pressure on three sides: unlike the usual flat cam, V-Grip is fitted with a V-shaped cam that improves the holding strength without damaging the line cover;
  • load distribution: the curved base-V-Cam pair increases the bearing surface, preventing the load from being concentrated at a critical point;
  • line retrieval with closed lever: line retrieval can be achieved with the lever closed. The line stops automatically in the new position with no slippage;
  • emergency opening: the line can be released under load without the use of a winch because the Antal mechanism guarantees easy opening even under heavy conditions. A complete range with 7 different models for lines from 6 to 22 mm. All Antal models, except the Maxi and the VJ/VH, are available in single, double, triple and quadruple versions. The Cam 611 and Cam 814 are also available in a Silver version with the new ergonomic aluminium lever.
