Intuitive to use: - technique identical to classic Prusik pulley system - the device locks automatically on the rope once the friction chain extends
For efficient movement within the tree: - rope feed is smooth and precise thanks to the release lever, allowing the user great control over his/her movements. Adjusting the pressure on this lever controls the speed of movement - easy to take up slack, thanks to the pulley mounted on sealed ball bearings and the separated and curved side plates - lower attachment hole is fixed to ensure alignment of the device with the axis of the worker and optimize grip
Versatile: - for use on either doubled ropes or a single rope, thanks to the CHICANE accessory, which offers more friction on the descent, and the KNEE ASCENT assemblies, which facilitate the ascent - upper attachment hole for the rope end when using a doubled rope or for the CHICANE auxiliary braking device when using a single rope. It has a flexible positioning ring that helps keep the connector oriented along its major axis - auxiliary attachment hole for adding a ZILLON lanyard or connecting a second system
Durability: - steel construction for improved durability - separated and curved side plates for better wear resistance

Absolutely love the zig zag.
Going from a French prusik to a zig zag is a great way to go as they are very similar. Like anything you have to get used to it but overall it improves the efficiency of all jobs big or small.
Great bit of kit. Easy to use
Good in ascent but difficult to control in descent.
My first zigzag and i find no faults ascending or descending nice smooth controllable action
awsome bit if gear
A quality product with smooth operation
Awesome, glad i finally swiched from the old method i was using thanks Tree gear
