Self-locking brake designed for rappelling. It allows for very precise control of the descent speed.
Self-locking system operates so that the rope is clamped and will not allow movement. To unlock, a lever must be depressed.
- Rate of descent is controlled by the downward force pressing the free end of the rope.
- Brake has a spring-loaded latch on the side, so it can be placed on the rope, without having to detach it from the harness.
- Ascent is possible without changing the position of the brake, only with the addition of textile climbing steps and an ascender device as can be seen in the drawing below.
