Used below the rappel device, the SHUNT works as a rappel back-up and replaces friction hitches like the Prusik. Works on single and half ropes.
- Easy to install on the rope
- Smooth clamping surfaces won’t damage rope
- May be used to ascend single or doubled rope
“Professional operatives who choose to use the Petzl Shunt as a rope-access and work-positioning back-up device must have received and mastered IRATA training or similar, and must use the Petzl Shunt with IRATA method. Responsibility for this remains with the employer and the user.”
