Developed in the early 2000s by Reed Thorne and Ropes That Rescue, the AZTEK system has become a valuable multipurpose tool of rescue and technical rope access practitioners. Although designed originally as an edge restraint carried at the harness, this compact double pulley set has become the ultimate Personal Mechanical Advantage kit that can be configured as a 5:1, or 4:1 with a re-direct by just rotating the system.
The AZTEK can be used as a pick off, adjustable directional, high directional guyline, high angle attendant tether, high angle litter scoop, load release hitch and much more. Each pulley is color coded to match with a corresponding prusik for quick identification. The AZTEK pulleys are machined from solid aluminum, feature swivel connection points, and utilize high efficiency bearings.
