Further to our post last week about a new Petzl ASAP which has just been shown at the IRATA meeting in Las Vegas, we are pleased to give you the first glimpse of the Petzl ASAP Lock Fall Arrester:
The ASAP Lock is based around the very popular Petzl ASAP fall arrest device featuring a toothed wheel which allows the device to run up and down the rope without manual interference. If the device is shockloaded or gains too much inertia (such as during a mainline failure), the wheel locks on the rope arresting the fall of the user. The ASAP can be used with or without a tear out lanyard and has a connection arm offering a semi-permanent connection, helping minimise the risk of dropping the device when putting it on / removing it from the rope.
