NRS Revo Rescue Pulley

$79.95

Built for use with ropes from 9mm-15mm, the NRS Rescue Revo Pulley is a prusik-minding pulley ideal for Z Drag swiftwater rescue and also climbing situations.

When it comes to White Water Rescue, you may have to recover your kayak/boat or someone else’s, in the event someone capsizes.

In this situation, an efficient mechanism for retrieving a boat is required, you will need to set up a Z Drag with two pulleys.

If a carabiner only set up is used, not only is it less efficient, but you may run into issues with friction that affects your rope.

The Z Drag Rescue setup with pulleys requires;

  1. Two pulleys
  2. Four carabiners
  3. 2 Prusik loops
  4. An anchor rope or webbing
  5. One rope used to haul in the object you are after.

The diagram below shows how to rig a Z Drag setup using two pulleys, used for swiftwater rescue and climbing situations.

Each of the Prusik knots in this Z Drag with have to be adjusted on occasion. This setup provides a three to one advantage over a straight pull.
