Petzl I’D

Self-Braking Descender/Belay Device with Anti-Panic Function

The Petzl I’D is a self-braking descender that ensures comfort and safety when moving on a single rope.

Features of the Petzl I’D include:

  • A multi-functional handle that allows the user to release the rope and begin the descent or position himself whilst on the rope
  • An anti-panic function that is engaged if the user pulls too hard on the handle
  • An anti-error safety catch which reduces the risk of an accident due to the incorrect installation of the device on the rope
  • A pivoting cam that makes it easier to take up the slack in the rope.

The Petzl I’D is available in two versions:-

  • The I’D S for working on fixed ropes comes with a safety clip on the swinging plate and is for use with rope diameters of 10 to 11.5mm
  • The I’D L for rescue comes without the safety clip and is for use on rope diameters of 11.5 to 13mm. Please note that the I’D L is a special order item and is not normally kept in stock. Please contact us, if this is the version that you require.

It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that the user is adequately and competently trained in the use of this product. We strongly advise that you do not use the Petzl I’D without first undertaking appropriate training.
