  The gear4rocks RESCUE GRIP DOUBLE is a multi-function self-braking belay device for use wit two ropes, also can be used with single rope if necessary. When not loaded ropes will move freely through the RESCUE GRIP. If a climber falls the RESCUE GRIP will stop the fall by blocking the rope. After a climber regains control he/she can continue to ascend or descend. The gear4rocks RESCUE GRIP can be used in conjunction with an upper prusik or jumar when ascending a single rope and works well alone when climbing or downclimbing along a static rope or handline. It’s self-locking feature also allows a lead climber to belay the second off a fixed anchor.
The RESCUE GRIP’s design is based on UIAA standards and holds 4 kN force on dynamic and static style sheathed climbing ropes between 8-12mm. The blocking mechanism has no sharp spines or teeth so it will not damage your rope. The RESCUE GRIP can be used in temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius and has been effectively used on ice-covered ropes and muddy ropes. Maximum working load for the grip is 150 kg.
Before use ensure that the diameter and weight of the rope is sufficient by rapidly loading the device by pulling on the attached quicklink or runner. The RESCUE GRIP should quickly grab the rope. After every use inspect the RESCUE GRIP and clean the blocking mechanism of any dirt.
Allow the RESCUE GRIP to naturally track your movements. When ascending or descending do not touch the RESCUE GRIP casing, instead adjust it’s location by pulling the attached quick draw or runner. Grabbing the RESCUE GRIP during a fall may cause severe pinching of body parts and may retard the time it takes for the RESCUE GRIP to grab the rope. Ensure that only a locked carabineer is used with the RESCUE GRIP.
When ascending or descending near the lower end of a static rope the weight of the rope may be insufficient. Add weight, anchor the rope end, or have a partner hold the rope taught.
RESCUE GRIP is designed to take the weight of one person in a static climbing setting. If a situation occurs where RESCUE GRIP was involved in a hard or dynamic fall, it is important to retire the RESCUE GRIP. There are appropriate and inappropriate uses of blocking ascenders. Use the RESCUE GRIP only after necessary training under the advice of a professional climber.
