The TORNADO is a lifting and lowering  device with a locking cam for use on kernmantle rope.

The one way bearing in the main cam allows it to rotate freely when lifting but lock when lowering.

Controlled lifting is a widespread activity in all work at height and rescue.

With its smooth running one way bearing, the TORNADO lifting and lowering device is a light and versatile addition to any lifting system.

Operation of this device is simple – pull the tail end of rope to lift, raise the body of the device to lower.

The rope can be installed while the device is connected to the anchor point to reduce the risk of dropping.
