Self-braking descender - PETZL

In stock

Compact self-braking descender for rope access, designed for experienced users.

RIG is a compact self-braking descender for rope access, designed for experienced users. It comes with an ergonomic handle that allows comfortable descent control. The AUTO-LOCK system allows users to position themselves at the workstation easily without using the handle or attaching the device. Once locked, the rope can be taken up without moving the handle. The safety gate allows the rope to be installed while the device remains connected to the harness,

making it easier to move through intermediate anchors.

The rope guides and markings allow easy installation.

The ergonomic handle releases the rope and enables convenient descent control. Two possible descent modes found on the side plate or in the V-shaped friction channel.

The handle automatically switches to storage position when the rope is removed from the device, reducing the risk of accidental snagging when the descender is on the harness.
