Petzl ZIGZAG PLUS Descender Kit for Single Rope

INCLUDES ZIGZAG PLUS & CHICHANE & 2 PETZL AMD TRILOCK CARABINERS WITH CAPTIV

Mechanical Prusik with high-efficiency swivel, for tree care

The ZIGZAG PLUS mechanical Prusik allows the user to move around efficiently in a tree using classic Prusik pulley system technique. The friction chain provides precision and fluidity when moving around. The pulley is mounted on sealed ball bearings to allow the slack to be taken up easily. Can be used on either doubled ropes or a single rope, providing great versatility. The lower attachment hole with high-efficiency swivel ensures stable and correct positioning of the mechanical Prusik and optimal rope glide through the device.

Description

  • Intuitive to use:
    - technique identical to classic Prusik pulley system
    - the device locks automatically on the rope once the friction chain extends
  • For efficient movement within the tree:
    - rope feed is smooth and precise thanks to the release lever, allowing the user great control over his/her movements. Adjusting the pressure on this lever controls the speed of movement
    - easy to take up slack, thanks to the pulley mounted on sealed ball bearings and the separated and curved side plates
    - lower attachment hole with high-efficiency swivel ensures stable and correct positioning of the mechanical Prusik and optimal rope glide through the device
  • Versatile:
    - for use on either doubled ropes or a single rope, thanks to the CHICANE accessory, which offers more friction on the descent, and the KNEE ASCENT assemblies, which facilitate the ascent
    - upper attachment hole for the rope end when using a doubled rope or for the CHICANE auxiliary braking device when using a single rope. It has a flexible positioning ring that helps keep the connector oriented along its major axis
    - auxiliary attachment hole for adding a ZILLON lanyard or connecting a second system
  • Durability:
    - steel construction for improved durability
    - separated and curved side plates for better wear resistance
  • Rope compatibility: 11.5 to 13 mm diameter
  • ZIGZAG PLUS allows the user to work in compliance with the ANSI Z133 standard

CHICANE

Auxiliary brake for mechanical Prusik on single ropes, for tree care

The CHICANE auxiliary braking device allows ZIGZAG and ZIGZAG PLUS mechanical Prusiks to be used on single ropes. It provides continuous additional friction on descents. The excellent compatibility of the CHICANE and mechanical Prusik as an assembled unit ensures smooth rope glide through the brake during ascents. The ergonomic handle provides excellent grip and facilitates movement while limb walking. Thanks to the openable side plate, installation is quick and easy.

Description

  • Allows ZIGZAG and ZIGZAG PLUS mechanical Prusiks to be used on single ropes:
    - continuous additional braking action, thanks to the added friction of the two friction pins
    - used with an Am'D or OK connector (not included). The H-shaped cross-section of the connector, together with the positioning ring of the mechanical Prusik, make the CHICANE and mechanical Prusik a compatible unit that ensures smooth rope glide through the brake during ascents
    - ergonomic handle facilitates movement while limb walking
  • Easy installation:
    - openable side plate for quick and easy installation on the rope
    - triple action unlocking limits rick of accidentally opening the side plate
    - connects on the upper hole of the mechanical Prusik
  • Optimized durability, thanks to the two friction pins, available as spare parts
  • CHICANE allows the user to work in compliance with the ANSI Z133 standard

Specifications

  • Material(s): aluminum, steel, nylon
  • Weight: 255 g
  • Min. rope diameter: 11,5 mm
  • Max. rope diameter: 13 mm
  • Rope compatibility: EN 1891 type A low stretch kernmantel ropes

5 of 5 Super nice product and kit July 15, 2019
Reviewer: Joe Tate from San Jose, CA United States  
Everything you need to setup and use the Petzl ZigZag, except the small tether you need to raise it. I have tried multiple systems for ascent and descent.  If you are going to use SRT, get this kit.  Saves money and works like a champ!
