The Petzl RIG takes off from the Petzl ID small, and streamlines its approach. The RIG is ideal for personal ascent, descent and positioning. The redesigned handle action makes this device easy to operate under lighter loads, while its lake of break-over panic function allows for quick, fluid movements. Carrying the same cam-based strength rating as the ID small, the RIG allows for similar versatility and can be used as a progress capture with in-line haul systems, tensioning systems and many other T rated applications. The Petzl RIG features a pivoting cam that pinches the rope when locked, while its swinging side plate allows for easy install at any point on the rope. The safety gate allows easy loading without disconnecting the device. Due to its streamlined design, the RIG is recommended for use by trained, competent professionals only.
