Mechanical Prusik for tree care--Features
Intuitive to use:
- technique identical to classic Prusik pulley system
- the device locks automatically on the rope once the friction chain extends
For efficient movement within the tree:
- rope feed is smooth and precise thanks to the release lever, allowing the user great control over his/her movements.
Adjusting the pressure on this lever controls the speed of movement
- easy to take up slack, thanks to the pulley mounted on sealed ball bearings and the separated and curved side plates
- lower attachment hole is fixed to ensure alignment of the device with the axis of the worker and optimize grip
- for use on either doubled ropes or a single rope, thanks to the Chicane accessory, which offers more friction on the descent, and the Knee Ascent assemblies, which facilitate the ascent
- upper attachment hole for the rope end when using a doubled rope or for the Chicane auxiliary braking device when using a single rope. It has a flexible positioning ring that helps keep the connector oriented along its major axis
- auxiliary attachment hole for adding a Zillon lanyard or connecting a second system
- steel construction for improved durability
