SHUNT Back-up rope clamp. Used below the rappel device, the SHUNT works as a rappel back-up and replaces self- jamming knots like the Prusik. Works on single and double ropes. Easy to install on the rope. Smooth clamping surfaces won't damage rope. May be used to ascend single or doubled rope.
The shape and size of this carabiner makes it great for most uses, from connecting a belay device to your harness or as a connector at the end of a lanyard. The D-shape makes it one of the strongest and lightest locking carabiners Petzl makes. Perfectly suited for use with belay devices due to its symmetric shape on both ends of the carabiner. In addition, the D-shape has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all Petzl carabiner designs. This carabiner comes with Petzl's Keylock system.
Available with manual locking (SCREW-LOCK) gate or auto-locking systems (BALL-LOCK, TRIACT-LOCK).
