The Petzl Rescue Pulley is a pulley for rescue professionals. The pulley uses two swinging plates to facilitate rescue, hauling heavy loads, and intensive use. The minimum rope diameter is 7mm, while the maximum is 13mm, allowing for a wide range of options. The side plates and sheave are made with aluminum and accept up to three carabiners. Cheers to the hard work of rescue pros!

Its a great pulley, but so was its predescesor. Catch is, this one is better !In short this is a great, bombproof, pulley. I once had an experience necking a rope using carabiners on a top-rope setup, so I switched to using the petzle rescue pulley. Its works great ! Because it is a rescue pulley, it has a hole big enough for three carabiners. This is great for a top-rope setup because it allows you to use two for hookup to the anchors, and one to drop down below the biner for the climbing rope to feed through as a backup. I do this simple because I'm paranoid about mechanical devices failing, but this thing is built solid. the older model was great too, but this model has smoother edges, and even smoother feed. Its a two thumbs up for sure.

Not the best rappelling pulley, but great for climbing!This isn't the best rappelling pulley because it doesn't quite have a lot of traction to be going down without a belayer. But I love this pulley as a climbing pulley! Since its so easy to pull rope through, it's great for climbing!
