I have designed a new friction hitch.
it is similar in design to the vt or machard
However it self ascending and a little quicker to descend on. Has anyone heard of a hitch that is self ascending?(without the use of a micro pulley)???????

Knut, TK & Icicle are fairly self tending. Fair results from a SuiSlide (wrong version of Blake's) that you pull in basket (from both ends).
