Mainline systems are the workforce contingent for all rescue and rigging operations. A mainline is not always a 'simple 3:1' raise change to lower, or the other way around.... They can be a 360° option at times!

With mainlines, there’s a lot going on and much to keep track off. It’s vital that you know how to construct a Mainline system that can easily and safely convert from a lowering to a raising system. Are you prepared?
