This patented multi purpose device features a high-efficiency pulley with a built-in rope grabbing mechanism that allows the device to be used not only as a variable friction descent/lowering-control device on the main line of a belay system, but with a few simple steps, can be turned into a powerful ratcheting raising system without a hardware change. The MPD offers a becket for cleaner more efficient rigging, the main line and belay line to be mirrored or twin-tensiones, and can function as a lowering brake.  This multi-use hardware allows for a valuable decrease in rescue time and simplifies the systems needed in a rescue or rigging scenario.
