A lightweight compact auto−braking descender for rope access and rescue designed for semi−static ropes ranging from 10 to 11 mm. Proprietary anti−panic function in the lever re−engages the cam if the handle is pulled to far where it could lead to unsafe descent speeds.
The body and lever are made of robust hot−forged aluminum alloy. Mechanical parts are made of precision−cast stainless steel. The internal mechanism and locking cam use a patented design for smooth action on the rope which prevents rapid wear−and−tear and absorbs energy from small shocks with a slight amount of rope slippage.
The fluid action on the rope also allows the Druid to function well for rope ascent. The cam can be de−activated with a trigger to allow quick sliding of the rope in situations with no load or limited load. Steel ring for attaching a keeper cord.
