Petzl America D22A ZigZag Mechanical Prusik
The ZIGZAG mechanical Prusik allows the user to move around efficiently in a tree using classic Prusik pulley system technique. The linked rings provide precision and fluidity when moving around. The pulley is mounted on sealed ball bearings to allow the slack to be taken up easily. The steel construction offers great durability. Only for use on doubled ropes. It has a flexible ring that helps maintain the connector in the major axis position.
Technique identical to classic Prusik pulley system
Release lever mounted on spring for great precision when locking/releasing the device. Adjusting the pressure on this lever controls the speed of movement.
Friction links provide progressive braking action for smooth movement
Pulley mounted on sealed ball bearings to allow slack to be taken up easily
Swivel always keeps the device in position for better rope glide through the device
Steel construction for improved durability
Upper connection point for easily connecting the end of the doubled rope.
Petzl America M34ATL Am'D Lightweight Asymmetric Carabiner
The Am’D lightweight asymmetric carabiner is made of aluminum. It has a D shape particularly suited for connection to diverse equipment such as descenders or positioning lanyards. Its fluid interior design and Keylock system facilitate handling. The Am’D carabiner is available in three locking systems: automatic TRIACT-LOCK or BALL-LOCK system, or the manual SCREW-LOCK system.D shape is particularly suited for connection to equipment such as descenders or positioning lanyards. This aluminum carabiner whose light weight reduces the weight of equipment the worker at height needs to carry. May be used with a CAPTIV positioning bar to favor loading of the carabiner along the major axis, to limit the risk of it flipping and to keep it integrated with the device. The H cross-section ensures an improved strength-to-weight ratio and protects markings from abrasion.
- Easier handling
- fluid interior design limits the risk of having a catch point and facilitates rotation of the carabiner
- Keylock system to avoid any involuntary snagging of the carabiner
Available in three different locking systems:
- TRIACT-LOCK: automatic locking with triple-action gate opening
- BALL-LOCK: automatic locking with triple-action gate opening, with lock indicator
