The RIG can be used in a haul system. It serves as a progress capture device for hauling or freeing a person.

It functions as a progress capture device without damaging the rope in case of overloading. If you want to stop the haul, you can lock the device in the work positioning mode. Warning: the RIG starts to slide at around 5-6 kN depending on the rope used.

For greater efficiency, install the RIG at the head of the haul. This avoids efficiency loss due to rope stretch.
