Machined from 12.5-mm (1/2-inch) plate, our classic Rescue 8 design has been refined for even better performance with today’s selection of life safety rope. Descenders no longer routinely use 16-mm (5/8-in) rope, so the smaller dimensions of our Rescue 8 provide greater control. The proprietary black finish on the aluminum model provides outstanding wear resistance, while the nickel-chrome-plated steel model excels in high-wear situations, such as sandy, gritty environments. The extended carabiner hole accommodates multiple carabiners.
* Certified range of rope diameters and CMC’s recommendation for best performance.
