Petzl ZIGZAG® Mechanical Prusik for Tree Care

The Petzl ZIGZAG® Mechanical Prusik allows the user to move around efficiently in a tree using the 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 thanks to the CHICANE accessory, which offers more friction on the descent, and the KNEE ASCENT assemblies, which facilitate the ascent, helping to provide great versatility. The lower attachment hole is fixed to ensure alignment of the device with the axis of the worker and to optimize grip. The auxiliary attachment hole facilitates the addition of a ZILLON Lanyard or the connection of a second system.

The steel construction of the ZIGZAG® improves its durability. This Mechanical Prusik is compatible with 0.45'' to 0.51'' ropes and allows handling of loads up to 309 lbs.
