Practi Bolts are a game-changer for climbers of all levels, offering an unparalleled tool for skill development and confidence-building in the world of rock climbing.
How to Use
1. Remove the clear backing
Each Practi Bolt has a clear plastic film that protects the sticky nano gel. Remove this film before your first use of the product.
Nano gel is a space age material that mimics the effect of a geckos foot. So although very tacky, it doesn’t damage the attached surface and can be removed at anytime.
2. Press Firmly in place
Find a clean, magnetic surface and press your Practi Bolts firmly in place. Your home fridge, a whiteboard, or the side of your car all work great!
The nano gel needs to be dressed firmly to maximize it’s strenth. After that, the magnet keeps constant pressure on the gel.
3. Re-configure your setup
The bolts can be removed and repositioned over and over. Now you can recreate any setup you experience at your crag.
Add extra hardware to get even more creative with your anchor system and challenge yourself to find the solution.
4. Care Tips
- Guarantee the magnetic surface is CLEAN.
AVOID TOUCHING the sticky surface as this introduces oils.
- RINSE any contaminants from the sticky surface. DO NOT USE SOAP!
- USE AT ROOM TEMPERATURE. Hot and cold surfaces decrease the adhesive strength.
- The strength of the temporary bond increases with time. Leave them attached for best results.
Our Mission: Equitable Climbing Education
I continue to share free educational content for Practi Bolt users to learn from. Not everyone can afford a professional instructor so these tips can be invaluable for many. But it’s not stopping there! Over the past couple years, I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t. So we’ll be launching an online learning platform very soon.
I hope you will purchase a set of Practi Bolts and join the thousands of worldwide climbers who want to be prepared when arriving at the crag. Myself and Practi Bolts are here as a resource for you to fully experience the wonderful world of rock climbing in a more informed way. Learn even more about anchors here.
