A unique and versatile jamming device designed specifically for backing up abseils.Designed to use in place of traditional jamming knots to prevent loss of control during abseil. What make it especially appealing for multi pitch and aid climbers is the fact it can also be used for ascending, hauling and self belay.
This device is 'non-aggressive' as the grab element is a smooth clamp (no teeth) which will operate when the device is loaded i.e. in a fall. The device will not normally slide up or down a rope unaided so requires the operator to re-position it as they move when ascending.
Please note that this device is no longer recommended as a back-up device for rope access and rescue.
For use with a single rope of a diameter between 10 and 11mm or double ropes of between 8 and 11mm.
