The Petzl CHICANE auxiliary braking device allows ZIGZAG and ZIGZAG PLUS mechanical Prusiks to be used on single ropes. It provides continuous additional friction on descents. The excellent compatibility of the CHICANE and mechanical Prusik as an assembled unit ensures smooth rope glide through the brake during ascents. The ergonomic handle provides excellent grip and facilitates movement while limb walking. Thanks to the openable side plate, installation is quick and easy.

A very nice, solid and comfortable rope grab dedicated to the Zig-zag for SRT. Chicane plus Zig-zag makes it a fairly expensive option for SRT. This climbing option is kind of like the Rolls Royce for single rope climbing!
Epic tool. Quick and intuitive to fit on up a tree.
loving the new set up
it works well but the carabiner hole is made for specific carabiner which is clumsy and hard to fit.
