|ROPE DIAMETER||Single rope 10-11mm, Double rope 8-11mm|
|RECOMMENDED USE||Abseiling Security|
Smooth clamping surfaces won’t damage rope

Easy to install on the rope
A very useful device that can take one or two ropes and is the best device for safeguarding abseils. Can also be used as an ascender.
Much used for self belaying though there are some dangers with this, particularly on overhanging routes and Petzl do not recommend it.
Can be used on single ropes from 10mm - 11mm or on double ropes from 8mm - 11mm.
