Petzl Rig Rope Access Descender

$244.95 $220.46

Brand Petzl

The Petzl Rig is like the little brother of the Petzl I'D S, only without the safety features.  The mechanism is very much- stop, go and lock, with no anti-panic functions or teeth to catch you if threaded incorrectly.  It is fantastic for short descents and ascents when you don't want to change over to a chest ascender.  Also works great for hauling systems.  It is recommended for the more experienced user.  It is smaller and lighter than the I'D S but I have found it can wear quite quickly if used for regular long rope descents.

Petzls Description-

RIG is a compact self-braking descender primarily designed for experienced rope access workers. It has a multi-function handle that allows control of the descent speed and positioning at a workstation without the need to tie off the device. The safety clip reduces the risk of dropping the device and facilitates passing of intermediate anchors. And the automatic return system on the handle limits risks in case of an involuntary action by the user.

  • Designed for rope access work (expert users only)
  • Multi-function handle allows the user to:
    - unlock the rope and control the descent with the hand on the free end of the rope
    - position himself at the workstation without having to tie 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 gate on the moving side plate helps prevent dropping the device and facilitates rope installation when 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 FOOTAPE or FOOTCORD foot loop and an ASCENSION handled rope clamp).
