Petzl MGO Open

Large Auto-Locking Directional Connector

Designed for connecting to metal structures, as well as large diameter cables and bars, MGO or Scaffold hooks are very useful for tower climbing and other work on structures where supporting members are connected to directly.

The MGO Open sees the introduction of the gated connection point which allows for simplified attachment of the MGO Open to Absorbica or Grillon lanyards. This means that if your lanyard is damaged, or reaches the end of its safe working life, then your connector can be re-used by simply purchasing a replacement lanyard.

The MGO open is available in two variations: MGO Open 60 (60 mm wide gate opening) and the MGO Open 110 (110 mm super wide gate opening). The MGO Open 110 is the largest hook of its type available & is the ideal tool to provide solutions in difficult tower climbing & rescue situations. The double action gate, smooth action & high strength make the MGO Open an excellent device for anyone who climbs on steel.

Other features of the Petzl MGO Open include:-
  • MGO Open 60: Wide gate opening of 63mm
  • MGO Open 110: Super wide gate opening of 110mm
  • Ergonomic unlocking & opening system
  • Special connection point helps to keep the MGO hook loaded on its major axis
  • Light weight body with stainless steel gate components
