Auxiliary brake for mechanical Prusik on single ropes, for tree care

The CHICANE auxiliary braking device allows ZIGZAG and ZIGZAG PLUS mechanical Prusiks to be used on single ropes. It provides continuous additional friction on descents. The excellent compatibility of the CHICANE and mechanical Prusik as an assembled unit ensures smooth rope glide through the brake during ascents. The ergonomic handle provides excellent grip and facilitates movement while limb walking. Thanks to the openable side plate, installation is quick and easy.

Allows ZIGZAG and ZIGZAG PLUS mechanical Prusiks to be used on single ropes:
– continuous additional braking action, thanks to the added friction of the two friction pins

– ergonomic handle facilitates movement while limb walking
Easy installation:
– openable side plate for quick and easy installation on the rope
– triple action unlocking limits rick of accidentally opening the side plate
