In certain work situations, manipulating the PRO TRAXION from a distance may be an advantage.
The fixed side plate and the cam are equipped with a hole for attaching a cord that can be used to activate or deactivate the cam from a distance.
Pass the cord through the hole in the fixed side plate, then through the hole in the cam, and then tie a stopper knot. Warning: the end of the cord exiting the stopper knot must be very short, so as not to interfere with the functioning of the cam. There is a risk of it not locking if the cord gets caught between the cam and the rope.
This manipulation requires particular care and skill and is reserved for experts having performed a risk analysis of the situation. In order to keep visual control of the PRO TRAXION, Petzl recommends you limit the length of the cord to two meters maximum.
