The new Petzl Swivel Open





Petzl Swivel Open: It's not the most exciting looking piece of new kit from Petzl but here at Anglo Access were very excited to start using this new product. The Petzl Swivel Open 'opens up' all sorts of rigging possibilities for those that strive continual improvement from their kit. A gated swivel effectively removes up to two connectors from a system, thus reducing weight and bulk. With a large opening in each eye, the Petzl Swivel Open attaches to a wide range of products (pulleys, lanyards etc). Anyone who has used twin fall arrest lanyards extensively will be able to see the advantage of this product immediately. Twisting, tangling and general awkwardness will be dramatically reduced by the inclusion of a Petzl Swivel Open. Sealed ball bearings offer excellent performance and reliability as we have all come to expect of Petzl products.

The Petzl Swivel Open can attach itself to a wide range of products (pulleys, lanyards...) thanks to its large opening, thus allowing weight and bulk reduction in component systems. Petzl Swivel Open attached to Pro Pulley
Petzl Swivel Open linking fall arrest lanyards to harness When progressing with a set of fall arrest lanyards, the Petzl Swivel Open helps to prevent the arms from twisting thus simplifying progression.

The Petzl Swivel Open looks set to become one of those extra handy tools techs who are passionate about their trade wont be able to wait for. We certainly cant wait to add these to our harnesses and start reducing weight, bulk and twisted lanyard fumbling!
