Alpine WebLock 5.0

A New Kind of Webbing Anchor

The weblock, reimagined. Built for the modern day highlines with low tensions and minimal tensioning gear. With built-in anti-slippage and excellent pretension-ability, the Alpine WebLock 5.0 is your true tensioning-side companion.


Please note, there is a recall on the front pin for the Alpine WebLock 5.0. To read more about this recall, please visit the following page:

The Alpine WebLock 5.0: the weblock, reimagined. We took all the wonderful features of the AWL 4.0, reduced the size, beefed up the strength, made it way lighter, and added many many more features.

At a mere 188 grams, the AWL 5.0 is just over half the weight of the AWL 4.0, with the same MBS value! That's using the ISA Approved Super Single Wrap method for breaking the device! Speaking of which, the AWL 5.0 is ISA Certified.

Assembled in Lyons, CO from globally sourced components.

Design Optimizations Galore

Material where it's needed and none where it isn't

The AWL 5.0 has drastically reduced in weight compared to the previous version (AWL 4.0). In fact, it's just over half the weight in a similar size profile! We were able to accomplish this by removing all excess material from the device and only leaving it where necessary. This resulted in a very sleek and precise design, with a bit of visual flair built in!

A perfectly oriented connection point on the Wafer

This design reduction includes a smaller front pin (complete with a dyneema catch-cord that no longer tangles), a hollow center diverter, and of course, rounded edges everywhere! This new design is machined out of a single block of aluminum, giving it a solid-body feel.

With the reduction in weight, you might think that the strength would be reduced. Far from it! We were able to retain the high 60 kN MBS of the AWL 4.0, which is a full 12 kN higher than the ISA requires for certified weblocks, giving the device a full 5:1 safety margin. Rest easy with this tight long highlines using the AWL 5.0.

Pre-tensions Like a Dream

New geoemtry and embedded becket give more options than ever before to tension your line.

The Alpine WebLock 5.0 has a much lower front pin compared to other weblocks. This gives the webbing less surface area to contact when installed properly. This less contact area leads to less friction when the webbing is sliding through the device when you tension. This combined with a hard anodization gives the AWL 5.0 fantastic pretensionability.

Alpine WebLock 5.0 becket

In addition to the optimized geometry of the diverter and front pin, the AWL 5.0 comes with a functional becket on the front-end of the device. This becket is compatible with most carabiners (including roller carabiners) and 12mm or smaller shackles, allowing you to attach a tensioning system or build a complex or compound Buckingham system right on the device! No more dealing with slings or weird attachment methods to get your system working with your tensioning method, just clip it right to the becket! This becket has a 6 kN WLL.

An Anchor Hole for Everything

Huge anchor hole works with most connectors, spansets, static rope, and even soft releases!

Keeping with the tradition of the AWL 4.0, we have an awesome anchor hole on the AWL 5.0. It works with all sorts of different shackles, soft shackles (6mm is best as the knot is captured by the anchor hole), up to Green spansets, and up to 6-strands of 9mm static rope!

Alpine WebLock 5.0 anchor hole

Not only can you attach the AWL 5.0 with most connectors and soft rigging, it has also been optimized to work with a soft release! Simply pass your soft release strands down through the device and the back rails align perfectly to guide the soft release in an optimal way. Truely an all-in-one device.
