Especially for Rope Access Technicians


Designed for the rope access professional, the ASAP Lock is one of the premier backup devices available on the market.  In case of a sudden movement, the device will lock onto your rope, arresting your fall, even if you grab the device whilst falling.

Unlike the ASAP, the ASAP lock can be removed from your back-up rope without disconnecting it from it’s connector or lanyard. This eliminates the risk of dropping the ASAP when transferring from rope to rope. The second difference is that this mobile fall arrester has a user controlled locking function which isolates the mechanism and allows the device to remain stationary on the rope. This can prevent excess rope being dragged through the device in windy conditions.

Further features of the Petzl ASAP Lock include:-

  • Will work on vertical or angled rope
  • Will move along the rope without manual intervention (downwards and upwards)
  • Is easy to install and remove at any point on the rope
  • The connection arm makes the system loss-resistant when passing intermediate anchors
  • If used with an absober such as the Petzl ASAP ‘Sorber Axess it is rated for a two person load (250kg)
  • Comes with a three year guarantee
  • Made in France.


Our ASAP Lock is sold with either an Petzl ASAP ‘Sorber Axess, ASAP ‘Sober 20 or the ASAP ‘Sober 40 energy absorber. For any rope access or tower climbing rescue sitiuations the Petzl ASAP LOCK is unbeatable!

The ASAP Lock should only be used by someone who is fully trained. The certifications listed above depend entirely on using the ASAP Lock correctly with specific compatible products. Please fully understand the instructions for use available for downloading below.
