Petzl Shunt

I have been a member of IRATA since 2002, and trained with "Petzl Shunt" as a back up device and still do! With thanks to my trainer in 2002 who trained me to have a short cord attached to my shunt for the same reason you have issued this statement! The cord attached to my shunt is only long enough for me to use my thumb and forefinger?? Because of my training i have tried to remind others of the down fall of having to long cord. Is this statement a call for "Rope Techs" to stop using the Shunt. At the time sending this comment! No Safely Release has been issued by IRATA. Kev Wilkinson Rope Access Technician UK
