Dangerous situations like rescue operations and work-related descents can be made safe with equipment like the 8113 descent device unit from Miller by Honeywell. The 8113 may be compact but the steel construction is extremely hardy and the ingenious sliding mandrel system locks the 150’ descent rope safety line (not included) into place in the event of a fall. Adjusting for the weight of the wearer and the desired descent speed can be controlled by the number of times the lines is wrapped around the aluminum mandrel. Once the worker is in position, the 8113 can be locked to allow both hands to be used for the required tasks.
