- Carefully read the Instructions for Use used in this technical advice before consulting the advice itself. You must have already read and understood the information in the Instructions for Use to be able to understand this supplementary information.
- Mastering these techniques requires specific training. Work with a professional to confirm your ability to perform these techniques safely and independently before attempting them unsupervised.
- We provide examples of techniques related to your activity. There may be others that we do not describe here.
Warning: any excessive pulling on the handle can cause an uncontrolled release.Verify that no external object could accidentally pull on the cord.
WARNING: use only a lightweight cord to operate the handle. In certain situations, a cord that is too heavy could impede the automatic return of the handle (AUTO-LOCK).
Note: it is not possible to use the MAESTRO’s external brake when using a cord for remote control. Make sure that the load can be controlled without passing the rope over the external brake.
To maintain proper control over unlocking and descent speed, always hold the brake-side rope and the cord in the same hand.
