A very useful device that can take one or two ropes and is the best device for safeguarding abseils when installed below your abseil device (usually clipped to a leg loop). Can also be used as an ascender.

  • Easy to install on the rope.
  • Smooth clamping surfaces won’t damage rope.
  • May be used to ascend single or doubled rope. 
  • Can be used on single ropes from 10mm - 11mm or on double ropes from 8mm - 11mm.

Weight: ca 188g.

NB The Shunt is also much used for self belaying though there are some dangers with this, particularly on overhanging routes where the lever can get become depressed against your body, and Petzl do not recommend it.

Top tip: If self-belaying, as you climb up, tie knots in the rope below you so that if the Shunt slips you won't deck it!
