Warnings

  • Read the technical notice before viewing the following techniques.
  • It is important to fully understand the information provided in the technical notice before using this complementary information
  • Mastering these techniques requires training.
  • Consult a professional before attempting to perform these techniques on your own.

These techniques must only be executed by experienced users who are trained and practiced in using them with heavy loads.

For loads exceeding 100 kg, the rope used (type, condition, diameter...) has a significant effect on the RIG's performance. Use gloves.

Practice with your rope and be especially careful with new ropes.

With such high loads, you must limit the risk of a fall. With such masses, even a small shock load generates a lot of energy. This can cause significant rope slippage in the device.

Take up rope regularly, keep a firm grip on the brake side of the rope. Do not allow slack in the rope.

No shock loading is allowed with a heavy load.


Device attached to the anchor (position c)

To belay, hold the brake side of the rope in one hand and the climber side in the other.

Take in slack regularly. To stop a fall, firmly grip the brake side of the rope.

To lower a climber, the operation of the device is similar to the description found under "Lowering from an anchor" (use a braking carabiner).
