ISC The RED 7/16" Back-Up w/ Popper Tow Cord - ANSI 2 Person Rated
The RED - 7/16" Back-up Locking Device w/ Popper Tow Cord - ANSI 2 Person Rated
Simple, yet highly effective back-up device.
The RED's non-aggressive Cams have a positively locking spring, which means that the device is self-parking (rather than self-tailing, like many Ropegrabs). This self-parking function is important for Rope Access work techniques as they stipulate that the back-up device should be positioned so as to reduce fall factors to a minimum.
The RED makes use of 'Rotational Braking'- the more the device rotates clockwise, the greater the build up of friction, which provides the automatic braking in the event of a fall or sudden pull on the Cows-tail.
To increase the effectiveness of the Rotational Brake in a panic situation (for example, a main-line failure), the RED can be fitted with a 'Popper' tow cord release clip. The Popper is a breakaway clip which provides a secondary attachment point for the tow cord. During normal positioning activity, this secondary attachment point allows the user to tow the device directly downwards, without unintentionally engaging the device's rotational breaking system. When the cord is pulled in a panic situation, the Popper clip releases under the force and the cord then works in conjunction with the rotational movement of the breaking system.
