Harken’s Wingman is a brilliant piece of rope rescue technology on its own, but together with Conterra, the kit is a must-have for every rescue technician.
See below for a detailed breakdown.
Harken’s new Wingman applies new design and technology to achieve more from a compact personal mechanical advantage system. Wingman’s innovative design makes it among the first offerings in this category to achieve internal progress capture mechanically within the unit rather than relying on prusiks to achieve that externally. Wingman combines a ratcheting sheave to stop the rope with a composite handle or wing the operator can open and close under load for a well-modulated ‘fine-tuned’ release. Under full load even with the sheaves pulled completely together, the system may be released quite easily--with full control using one hand on the wing and the other tending the line.
The Wingman has a minimum overall length of just 8” which means more clearance under a tripod and more throw during a pick-off. The device is also ideal for creating adjustable directionals, work positioning and much more. It may be configured as a 4:1 or 5:1 mechanical advantage system. These revolutionary features plus ball bearings within the sheaves that maximize efficiency for raising and lowering loads of up to 681lbs, makes Wingman a simple tool you will always want at your side.
Comes in an industrial-grade ballistic nylon carrying case with locking buckle. Case includes drawstring and drain grommets to separate unit and line for proper deployment and line drying.
