"TWIN RELEASE" product description
Disengageable, the TWIN RELEASE catcher pulley is designed for mounting 4:1 hoists for work in confined spaces and technical rescues. The disengagement of the cam is possible thanks to the ergonomic handle. The brake integrated in the mobile side plate and the main sheave with facets with a single direction of rotation, provide additional braking and provide better control when lowering heavy loads. The two sheaves ensure excellent lifting performance. The manipulations are easy, thanks to the swivel link that allows the pulley to be oriented under load and to directly connect carabiners, ropes or straps.
- Disengagement of the cam and rope passage in the brake integrated in the main side plate for comfortable and precise control of the descent.
- Possibility of locking the cam in the open position to facilitate rope recovery.
- Faceted main sheave with single direction of rotation for very high lifting performance and additional braking during lowering of heavy loads.
- Triple action opening of the mobile side plates, easy and fast, even with gloves.

Petzl is aware of its responsibility towards the user who entrusts his life to its devices. That is why Petzl develops, analyzes and qualifies all its products beyond the required standards and norms. Its design center, based in France, integrates all areas related to product design: mechanics, textiles, electronics, optics and computing. From the design and prototype phases, product reliability and user safety are constantly evaluated, paying special attention to the risks of use.
Petzl has laboratories dedicated to product testing: dynamic tests, impact resistance, fatigue tests, performance, quality of light beams and flashlight autonomy. In addition, the tests in the field test the ergonomics and reliability of use.
