The Goblin fall arrester represents a monumental step forward in safety for workers who rely on fall arrest systems for work at heights. To be used on semi-static ropes ranging from 10-11 mm.
The innovative cam creates perfectly smooth action on the rope whether it is being used to ascend or descend the line. Performance can be further increased by using the Rope Surfer device.
Impact on the rope is reduced to the minimum thanks to the specially designed locking mechanism that lowers the fall arrest force (the force transferred to the body in the event of a fall) by half compared to other devices and locks the rope along a long axis, rather than pinching it aggressively with a toothed cam.
Switching to ascension mode is accomplished with the simple push of a button on the back of the device. Hot forged stainless steel cam and locking components combine with a robust aluminum alloy body for exceptional durability over time.
The Goblin Lanyard has been designed to integrate seamlessly with the Goblin by producing the proper distance between the user and the safety line. Available in two lengths: 26 and 40 cm. With the Goblin’s low fall arrest force, a separate energy absorber is not required. By inserting the rope into the Rope Surfer, the fluidity of the Goblin during descent is increased even further. The lanyard is designed to be used with two locking steel oval carabiners and includes rubber keepers to help fix the connectors in place to avoid accidental rotations or cross-loading.
