 (About Availability Estimates)

Simple, classic, robust. One of the most popular rope-access backup devices ever. 

The Duck-R conforms to EN 12841 and unlike older products, works on a single rope and can be towed continuously for short descents after a function test. 

With a steel body and spring, it certainly outlasts many competitors, and the non-spike design means it's kind to ropes.

  • Alloy cam is more kind to the rope in ordinary environments, getting you maximum value and life out of your ropes.
  • Steel cam is tougher so it lasts longer in extremely abrasive conditions (e.g. cement dust, sand).
  • Replacement steel and alloy cams are available anytime!
  • Plus, if you already had one with the alloy cam, yes you can change it to a steel cam, OR the other way around.
