Petzl CHICANE Auxiliary Brake for Mechanical Prusik

The Petzl 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 CHICANE is 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. The ergonomic handle provides excellent grip and facilitates movement while limb walking. Thanks to the openable side plate, installation is quick and easy. 

The CHICANE is compatible with 0.45'' to 0.51'' ropes and allows handling of loads up to 309 lbs.
