The DownRigger is an aerial friction device, used for lowering limbs quickly and efficiently. With its light weight and compact size, it can be connected and operated overhead, or at the base of the rigging system.
The DownRigger applies friction to the rigging line when weighted by the load, allowing the operator to control the descent by hand. Unweighted, the line pulls easily back through the device to reset the system. The DownRigger features the well-known Rock Exotica swivel top that allows for easy alignment with the load, and the double-locking side plate that makes rope installation more efficient.
