Portrait of the Petzl RIG

Written By: Lance Piatt

The Petzl Rig is designed for rope access work (expert users only).
The multi-functional handle allows the user to :
– Unblock the rope and control the descent with the hand on the free end of the rope
– Get into position 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 safety gate on the moving side plate helps prevent dropping the device and facilitates installation of the rope 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 FOOTCORD foot loop and an ASCENSION handled rope clamp).
Lowers heavy loads up to 200 kg (only for expert users; consult the Instructions for Use for the device).
