A key component of a rappel technique developed by our Tactical Rappel Class instructors, our 8 Link allows you to extend your figure 8 descender further away from your harness to make room for a safety Prusik hitch below the descender. It attaches to the figure 8 with a girth hitch. Multiple carabiner slots allow proper length adjustment. Pockets break at 5 kN (1,100 lbf). Rappel 8 with ears not included.
