Show Description

The shunt is essentially a mechanical prusik. Releasing the shunt will force the internal cam to grab the rope. To descend, you must maintain the cam open with your rope-free hand (much like guiding a prusik). The device can also be used to ascend a fixed overhead vertical rope.

  • Use with 10-11mm single ropes, or 8-11mm double ropes of equal diameter.
  • CE approved.
