Designed for rope access work (expert users only). Multi-functional handle allows the user to:
- unblock the rope and control the descent with the hand on the free end of the rope
- position himself while on the rope without tying off the device
The automatic return system on the handle limits risks in case of an involuntary action by the user. Handle storage position reduces the risk of snagging when the descender is being carried on the harness. The safety gate on the moving side plate helps prevent dropping the device and facilitates installation of the rope and passing intermediate anchors. Pivoting cam facilitates taking up the slack in the rope. Can also be used to make a reversible haul system, and for short ascents (in conjunction with a FOOTPRO foot loop and an ASCENSION handled rope clamp). For single ropes between 10.5 and 11.5 mm in diameter. Colors: Gold or Black. Weight 13.4 oz. (380 g). NFPA1983-06 Light Use Certified. Made in France
