The K-RIG DCL - 4 is an easy to operate Variable Friction rope descender.
This device is the result of over 20 years of using devices like the Goldtail and Rack. The DCL takes performance, usability, and safety to the next level.
The built-in attachment swivel is a game-changer for stunt riggers; this allows the operator to tune the device in exactly the right position, avoiding excessive line friction or the line running across the gate.
Using the swivel to fine-tune the direction of operation both for stunt rigging and on rope operation, allows for fast changes when maneuvering around obstacles.
The press-button system replaces the threaded wing nut, which can loosen during operation.
The press button gate offers single-hand operation, freeing the operator to maintain safeguard and control of the line at all times.
The press buttons are surrounded by a raised ring to prevent accidental opening during use. This is especially good in environments where the device can come in contact with uneven surfaces. Caving etc.
The DCL can be threaded in either direction into the device allowing for even wear.
The DCL has 4 holes to increase and decrease friction. On big descends with long lines two or three holes can be uses. As the weight of the rope decreases, friction can be increased by adding the fourth hole.
The DCL range allows for 2 rope access, giving the user the ability to run combinations to increase and decrease line friction. The DCL is especially useful for deceleration rigs for stunt rigging, by line stacking two ropes up to 8 holes of friction can be generated, this similarly replaces the need for the 5 hole versions.
New design rated top rigging plate to attach safety prussic, carabiners or support slings. Side knuckles make it easy to keep cords and prussic's to one side or the other.
Easy lock-off during operation.
Superior control in wet conditions.
Cantered rope alignment, keeps the DCL balanced during use.
Suited for rope diameters - 9mm to 12mm
