In this weeks Tech Pick of the Week we focus on a tech trick of the trade. The Petzl I’D is a self-braking descender with anti-panic function. This tech tip helps to demonstrate how to bypass the panic mode on the Petzl I’D by turning/rotating the I’D at an angle to allow the rope to bypass or defeat the cam. This technique is very helpful when you are making a horizontal progression and need to allow the rope to bypass the cam.

This tech trick is not endorsed by Petzl nor is it in the guidebook that comes with these products. Please remember to use this only with light loads or low angle progressions. Please call our gear tech’s for any questions at 888.600.9116.
