The retention collar design has a lower carved surface that provides maximum grip for ropes of varying thicknesses. Even with maximum efforts, the rope breaks before skating in the winch.
OCTOPUS MK1 selftailing system
The rope turns compress against the top retaining plate and ensure maximum grip with different ropes.
It is compatible with all brands and models of classic winches.
For proper operation, the rope must be rolled several turns into the winch until the bell drum is filled.
OCTOPUS MK2 selftailing system
The OCTOPUS MK2 convert the winch to selftailing by adding a top piece with nail and rope derailleur and a retaining plate, transforming into a selftailing winch with automatic rope ejection.
Take advantage of the thrust of the rope turns to compress the last lap against the retaining collar.specifications and prices
This system prevents the friction of the rope against the tab, usual in standard selftailing winches, and does not brake the rope during crank operation.
Octopus MK2 is compatible with certain winches models that allow the internal machining required for installation.
