Users of common climbing safety equipment rarely understand exactly the loads and forces they are exerting on the equipment at a given time. All climbing equipment comes with a certified safety rating for the amount of force, in kilonewtons, that particular piece of equipment can take. Unfortunately, calculating dynamic load strain on-the-fly is nearly impossible. There needs to be a reliable, easy way of knowing exactly what load is being placed on a piece of equipment at any given point of time.
