Release lever mounted on spring for great precision when jamming/releasing the device. Varying the pressure on this lever controls the speed of the descent. The friction links provide progressive braking action for fluidity when moving around. The pulley is mounted on sealed ball bearings to allow slack to be taken up easily. The swivel always keeps the device in position for better rope glide through the device. They offer a steel construction for improved durability.
