The CMC MPD (Multi-Purpose Device)

The CMC MPD allows you to go from lowering to raising without changing hardware. The MPD’s high-efficiency pulley, with an integral rope-grab mechanism, allows it to be used as a lowering device on the main line and belay line systems and be quickly changed over to a raising system without switching out or replacing hardware. The combination of essential features into a single device simplifies on-scene rigging, allows for fewer components in your system, reduces weight and simplifies training.

The MPD is UL Classified as a pulley, descent control device and belay device and its features include:-
  • A high efficiency pulley is incorporated with an integral rope-locking mechanism (ratchet) for a haul system
  • The built-in becket allows cleaner rigging and more efficient pulley systems
  • Functions as both a lowering brake and as a ratcheting pulley for raising
  • Ideal for confined space operations because it converts rapidly to a retrieval line
  • Comes with a padded Cordura nylon storage bag and User’s Manual
  • Available in a 11mm (grey) version designed for and tested with 11 mm rope.
  • Please contact us if you require the 13mm (red) version designed for use with 12.5 – 13mm rope.

Please note that the ultimate safety of the CMC MPD rests in the knowledge and training of those utilising the item. We strongly advise that you do not use the MPD without first undertaking appropriate product training.
