The Figure of 8 descender is used for lowering or abseiling. Manufactured from high strength aluminium alloy. It has a large eye with room for an extra karabiner and ears to prevent the rope rolling into a locked position. The figure of 8 does twist the rope and is best used on firm rather than soft rope. It is not recommended for use with rope that comes straight out of a rope bag.
It should only be used with a back-up safety lock, such as a Rocker or Prussic style rope lock.
- Rope size: 9 – 13mm dia.
- MBS: 35kN
