Petzl Shunt

3   |  

The Petzl Shunt is a rope jamming device, which is used below the belay device to replace friction hitches such as a Prusik knot.

The Shunt provides an additional safety system when descending by backing up the descender. Positioned below the descender, the Shunt acts as a back-up belay for an abseil descent. It locks onto the rope as soon as you release it and follows your descent when you press on it.

  • Easy to install on the rope

These only work with slings

These only work with slings as they are too small for ropes. I tried the L size with a lanyard and couldn't get it in. I suspect even the XL would be too small for a rope.

The item is ok but

The item is ok but you didn't have as many in stock as your website said and I don't know whether you charged for the number I ordered or the number you sent

professional useage

Hi, I've used these on a professional basis, they are ok for that but only really as a back up, I certainly would not use these for solo climbing. As a hauling device and also as a back up, they are fantastic but not for soloing, take a partner instead!
