Made specifically for high-angle rescue work, the Rescue 8's versatile design and features fit the job it's designed for.

  • Extended "horns" on upper portion of large ring prevent the rope from sliding up and locking off
  • Large upper oval allows use of large and heavy-duty ropes
  • Dual tie-in holes keep Rescue 8 attached to harness while rope is tied to carabiner--no possibility of dropping during life-threatening situations
  • Made of hot-forged 6061 T-6 aircraft-quality aluminum and hard-anodized for durability, lower rope friction and a breaking strength of 10,000+ pounds

Made in USA.
