Ascenders, Belay, Rappel, Belaying and Rappelling Gear and Equipment
The CMC MPD is the innovative multi-purpose device that allows the user to go from lowering to raising without changing hardware.The CMC MPD is a UL Classified pulley, descent control device and belay device. A high efficiency pulley with an integral rope-grab mechanism optimizes the best of both worlds.
The D2 can be controlled by pushing in the cam (ideally using the thumb) which allows the user to smoothly feed the rope through the device, without the use of the handle. The cam feed feature is particularly useful for fast Bail-out or for work positioning during roof work for example.
The D5 is a double-stop device with an auto-lock function, which is activated whenever the operator releases the handle; and a panic-brake function, which is not overly sensitive in normal use. The D5 also has a double-locking safety mechanism. In addition to the locking button, the side plates are designed such that the plates cannot be rotated open, whilst under load, due to the position of the Carabiner.
