MPD (Multi Purpose Device) Descent Control, and Belay device

Rope Rescue! Pulley / Rescue Belay / Descent Control

The MPD allows you to go from lowering to raising without changing hardware. More than nine years of research and development went into the patented Multi-Purpose Device (MPD), which features major innovations in advanced technical hardware for rope rescue professionals.

The MPD’s high-efficiency pulley, with an integral rope-grab mechanism, allows it to be used as a lowering device on the main line and belay line systems and be quickly changed over to a raising system without switching out or replacing hardware. The combination of essential features into a single device simplifies on-scene rigging allowing you to expedite the rescue.

The revolutionary MPD increases user safety with:
•    Reduced Weight
•    Fewer Components
•    Faster Rigging
•    Quick Changeovers
•    Simplified Training
•    Lower Risk




The MPD is UL Classified as a Pulley, Descent Control, and Belay device.
•    Variable-friction descent control device for rescue systems and rappels
•    High efficiency pulley with integral rope-locking mechanism (ratchet) for a haul system
•    Built-in becket allows cleaner rigging and more efficient pulley systems
•    Allows main line and belay line rigging to be mirrored or twin-tensioned
•    Functions as both a lowering brake and as a ratcheting pulley for raising
•    Ideal for confined space operations because it converts rapidly to a retrieval line
•    The MPD includes a protective Cordura® nylon storage bag and MPD User’s Manual.
