The Petzl Shunt is a rope jamming device which replaces a self-jamming knot such as a Prusik knot.

Positioned below a 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.

Advantages
The Shunt gives you an additional safety system when descending by backing up the descender. Pull it down the rope to descend, when released it will jam.

Features
Easy to install on the rope
Smooth clamping surfaces won’t damage rope
May be used to ascend single or doubled 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 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!
