Efficiently apply large friction to rope (climbing line, rigging line, etc.) and help control rope sliding speed.
Sturdy and Rough!
Device with rating to 40kN Breaking Strength.
Round and Smooth!
Every corner of device is designed to be round and smooth. Do least damage to rope even in high speed sliding.
Safe and Versatile!
Three slots of different sizes, Bent ears, Thick body. A great gear designed to be safer and versatile.
Compared to Standard 8
A pair of extra Bent-Ears are added to Rescue 8, which makes it a much safer and more versatile device.
The ears prevent rope from sliding up and locking up, which is the general cause of accidents when rappelling with a standard 8.
Adjustable Descent Speed due to Big Slot
The main slot is big enough for operator to double or triple the single rope to increase frictions. Hence, operator is able to slow or stop descent with minimum force.
Look up yourself with long bent ears
If you need to stop rappelling to do other operations, just make 2~4 loops around the ears and lock up yourself.
Pay attention to that the loops must be kept under and within bent ears.
Efficient control of descent rate
Rescue 8 is widely used as descent control device in SRT in mountaineering, rappelling, adventure, training, tree climbing, caving, etc.
For Set-up of Aerial Silk Dance
Due to its long bent ear and sturdy construction, Rescue 8 is also widely used in rigging an aerial silk. Thick body makes it friendly for both textile rope and aerial silk strap.
