Totem Cams in horizontal placements

TotemCam horizontal direccion

In this post you will find a useful video explaining some tips to place a Totem Cam in horizontal placements.

 

1.- First, choose the biggest size that it fits into the crack. It will be more stable.

2.- Second, place as deep as possible to minimize the possible side load.

3.- Third, place it with the outer lobes at the bottom. It’s more stable this way too.

Totem Cam in horizontal, outer lobes at the bottom = more stability

4.- Fourth, if the crack is shallow, align the cam with the expected load as much as possible.
