    Glad you guys enjoyed the Munter Pop video. It's certainly an interesting technique!

    No one has yet been able to give me a convincing argument for the existence of the frog.
    They keep trying to market this thing for industrial / theater applications and it
    just is NOT safe.
    It opens easier than a non-locking carabiner...

    It’s probably the brain child of some enginerd who hasn’t produced anything else of value so they keep pushing it as if it will somehow catch on and give them some validation.

    No offense to the trained engineers among us. I wish I had been smart enough to go to engineering school.

    e-kermit.

    If this is the future in releasable anchor technique...,:rolleyes2: I trust my friends and all, and I think most of them like me (most days), but I'm going to have to insist that the remote thingy is in my possession!!

    And not wet, sandy, or squished.
    Like all the rest of your gear.

    this is very cool. seems like the same thing could be done by attaching the munter to a load releasing hitch (sling) like this:
    https://www.slideserve.com/amena-hunt/the-mariners-load-releasing-hitch

    with the load-releasing hitch, the tension on the munter can be relieved without fear of pinching fingers. should work I think?

    As mentioned above. Can you devise a geometry that does not leave the munter hitch biner on the rope being lowered? That is the problem I think the munter pop (and any of several "small lift" methods) solve.
