Self Braking Descender SPECS:
Self-braking descender with anti-panic function
• Multi-functional handle allows the user to: - unblock the rope and control the descent with the hand on the free end of the rope - move more easily on horizontal or low-angle terrain thanks to the button on the handle - position himself on the rope without tying off the device • Anti-panic function is engaged if the user pulls too hard on the handle: the pivoting cam is released and automatically brakes to stop the descent • Anti-error safety catch to reduce the risk of an accident due to incorrect installation of the device on the rope. The shape of the cam is designed to improve rope glide when ascending • 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). • The locking screw of the swinging side-plate allows the I’D S to be part of a rescue kit • Descender adapted for heavy loads • Lowers heavy loads up to 250 kg (only for expert users; consult the technical notice for the device at www.petzl.com) • For ropes between 10 and 11.5 mm in diameter
