The RAD (Rope Adjustment Device) is a multi-functional device which can be used as part of a work-positioning lanyard. The RAD can also be used for ascent, descent and work positioning/restraint, belay and progress capture. The ‘squeeze style’ device makes smooth adjustment easy and the spring-loaded flip down handle allows easy use, especially in descent mode. The RAD is CE certified as a system, which is available in a range of lengths, with a choice of connectors. The RAD can be supplied as an individual device* which can be fitted with a choice of rope and connectors. The latest model RAD (RP815.2) now features optional swing-cheek function. The new top bollard on the ‘.2’ version allows the user the choice of fixing the side plate in place (in line with Lanyard-related standards), or removing the captivation screw, allowing the front plate to be swung open, as required. The swinging side plate function is particularly useful when the device is used in descent applications.
