Back-Up Device




The Back-Up device was specifically designed as a mobile fall arrestor, for use in rope access, fall arrest and work positioning. This device will run freely up and down the rope until a sudden jerk will activate the stopping and locking mechanism. For rope access applications the device has a half lock capability that allows the device to be positioned where required.

For work restraint and work positioning the device has a full lock function that will keep the device locked in one place.

Product features:

  • The unlock/lock function makes it ideal for use in rope access and work positioning
  • Swivel opening function to ensure ease of use inserting the rope
  • Small lightweight design
