Rock Exotica Aztek 4:1 pulley system
Here is a compact mechanical advantage system that continually amazes rescuers with its many uses and versatility.
Some of the uses are as a pick off, travel restrict, adjustable directional, high directional guyline, high angle attendant tether, high angle litter scoop, load release hitch and much more.
Both Aztek pulleys have their own colour-coded prussiks and can be easily activated or deactivated. This means you can have the ratchet at either the top pulley or the bottom pulley. The special 3 on 2 prussiks cannot come off the rope, so the deactivated prussiks will stay ready to be used as soon as you need it.
Complete systems from our dealers use sewn prussikss and a sewn eye on the main rope, which makes things neater and more compact than knots.
You cannot appreciate how smooth and easy use of the prussikss is until you experience it. Because the prussiks only sees a fraction of the total load in an MA system, they don’t get too tight and they are easy to release and very controllable.
This system grew out of extensive use and experimentation of small MA systems by Ropes That Rescue. It is light years ahead of anything else.
If the world as we know it ends and you need an MA system to help you rebuild civilization, this is the one.
