Back feeding is a well know problem for rope solo experts. Mostly solved with elastic bands or dangers prussic rope solutions.

These keepers are special design agains backfeed in small batches with 3D printed with TPU.

It will keep the rope in place without having to make knots ore fumbling around with elastic bands.

In case of a fall the elastic TPU material will release the rope without damaging the rope or the keeper.

TPU is a tough flexibel 3D printing material the surface is a bit stringy since this a hard to print material. This creates even better friction/ holding power for the rope. Looks may be deceiving they work!

Placing them on the karabiners can be a bit of a struggle advice: use some disinfection handheld cleaning alcohol to slide them on. Use special karabiners to keep them on when they are finally in place.

Since TPU print is a hard to control process not all keepers will have the same finish and looks but the do work!
