Fixe PS 3/8 Bolt Hanger
37 years since the first Fixe hanger and a total of three geometric evolutions of what is probably the most used hanger in history. The entire development and production of the new Fixe hanger is placed a few kilometers from the headquarters of Fixe Climbing, located in Sant Quirze de Besora (Barcelona).
Working with the local metallurgical industry has allowed us to gain total control over every step we have taken throughout this process, adding knowledge and precision during 18 months of work that have been required to conceive this hanger. The result has been a lighter, more reliable hanger with better torque control, more durable and safe.

- Optimized surface area contact with the rock
- Breaking strength: 25 kN.
- Diameter: 3/8in and 1/2in.
- Weight: 57g (3/8”), 56g (1/2”).
- Ecotri zinc plated steel
- Made in Barcelona, Spain
Ecotri zinc plated steel: (Replacing bichromate steel)
Perfect for equipping indoor sport facilities such as gyms and climbing walls. Its manufacturing process is characterized by low emission of residues and increasing its resistance to corrosion. 8 microns of zinc coating (free of chromium-6) is applied and finished with an organic seal. With three treatments a higher resistance to corrosion is achieved (96h white corrosion + 360h red corrosion) and the resistance to thermal shock (200ºC) is also incorporated.
The rim of the bolt anchor hole protrudes slightly into a conical shape, away from the wall. The act of pulling the bolt anchor will generate a spring effect that provides constant pressure against the wall, multiplying the strength of the torque. It also provides more consistency when torque tightening the bolt.
With a thickness of 3.5mm (previously 4mm) we have reduced the weight of the hanger by 12.5% while still being one of the most robust hangers on the market.
textures on the hanger help to reduce the likelihood of the hanger spinning.
When placed on a roof, the carabiner will be routed so that it never comes into contact with the projecting head of the bolt anchor.
Fixe does not recommend for outdoor use*
*If you choose to use plated steel outdoors, use only in arid and low corrosive environments.
