RP292 one-way locking bearing version. For loads ranging from 20 to 120kg. The one-way locking wheel, provides additional friction when lowering, allowing increased control of heavy loads. During lifting, the wheel runs freely.
The rigging rope wrench applies friction to a lowering line whilst anchored at the top of the tree. This means that not only is the device controllable from the ground, but the line can also be passed to the climber in the treetop, should they need to take control.
Giving control to the climber is useful when working in smaller crews, or when the grounds-person is struggling to control the lowered section and the end of the line at the same time. With the rigging rope wrench the climber can control the rope, leaving the grounds-person’s hands free to control the lowered section. In the event of needing to lift a section over an obstacle, or apply upwards tension, the wrench element will disengage, removing the applied friction and allow a smooth haul up.
The rigging rope wrench has been optimised for 13mm rope, making it the ultimate lightweight rigging kit, when teamed with hollow-braid slings. For added versatility, the rigging rope wrench can be placed in the traditional position at the base of the tree. In this position, additional pulleys can be rigged, in order to increase mechanical advantage, for ease of lifting heavy loads.
Activities using this type of equipment are inherently dangerous. It is not possible to cover every eventuality relating to the use of this equipment. Purchasers and users of these products should seek professional training from a fully qualified and competent instructor prior to engaging in any activity (Approved Tree Rigging & Dismantling Unit recommended). If you are not able, or not in a position to assume this responsibility, do not use this product. The manufacturer its distributors and retailers do not accept any liability for its improper use.
It is your responsibility to ensure that all the components used are matched equally with their Working Load Limit (WLL) or Safety Factor (SF) or Safe Working Load (SWL). If you are unsure on a products individual specifications you should contact the manufacturer. You should never exceed the lowest rated section or component within a rigging system. When calculating any rigging system the strength of the anchor and attachment points must also be taken into account.
