Compact self-braking descender

  • Designed for rope access work (expert users only) The Rig is great for working on poles and trees; it is easy to descend and good for short ascents. Lock off and work with minimum gear to tangle. The Petzl Rig is a proven performer for the zip line and ropes course construction industry.
  • 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
