RP292 One-way Locking Bearing Version - For loads ranging from 20 to 120kg.
One-way locking wheel, provides additional friction when lowering, allowing increased control of heavy loads, during lowering. During lifting, the wheel runs freely. Comes tightly pakcagaed in a zip up, tough case for easy transport and storage, and can be easily attached to a harness and given to a climber to assist with take-downs.
The Rigging Rope Wrench applies friction to a lowering line whilst anchored at the top of the tree. This means that not only is the device controllable from the ground, but the line can also be passed to the climber in the treetop, should they need to take control.
Giving control to the climber is useful when working in smaller crews, or when the grounds-person is struggling to control the lowered section and the end of the line at the same time. With the Rigging Rope Wrench the climber can control the rope, leaving the grounds-person’s hands free to control the lowered section. In the event of needing to lift a section over an obstacle, or apply upwards tension, the Wrench element will disengage, removing the applied friction and allow a smooth haul up.
The Rigging Rope Wrench has been optimised for 13mm rope, making it the ultimate lightweight rigging kit, when teamed with hollow-braid slings.
For added versatility, the Rigging Rope Wrench can be placed in the traditional position at the base of the tree. In this position, additional pulleys can be rigged, in order to increase mechanical advantage, for ease of lifting heavy loads.
