Want to buy some stainless steel hangers

Postby trogman » Oct 25, 2013 9:12 am

I am looking to purchase some stainless steel hangers, primarily for permanent rigging in caves, but also to use on a cliff or two as well. The best deal I can find is on this website:
http://rapbolting.com/bolt-hanger
If I buy 50 of them, I can get them for $2.20 each, plus shipping. I have been told by some cavers on Facebook that I should be able to find a better deal, but so far nobody has actually come through with this supposed better price. So I thought I'd ask my Cavechat friends and see if anyone here has a lead on a better price.

Thanks!

Good hangers, although I prefer the Elderid ones as they are lighter and lower profile, but they cost $1 more.

$2.10 canadian no matter how many you buy.

Thanks for the recommendation. I don't really have a preference, as long as it has ample room for my carabiner and as long as it doesn't break under load :yikes: !
Oh, I also need it to be stainless. I don't want them rusting in a few years.

I noticed the same website has Fixe SS hangers for 2.10, which, according to my currency converter, is equal to $2.01 US dollars. However, the item description says they only ship it to Canada. Argh!
:sad: I was all set to order some.

Well, I ran out of patience and went ahead and ordered 50 of the Climbtech from RapBolting. I should have them in a day or two. I don't expect to run out for a while. :big grin:

Trogman, please let us all know when (if) you receive your shipment in proper order and within a reasonable time. I would like to order 10 hangers, and several anchors myself if that company proves to be reliable.

I've ordered from them in the past and had excellent, fast service. I plan to continue using them in the future.
