One of these exciting items is the PETZL Open Gate Swivel
This is a swivel that can be open on both sides, which will help you minimize the height lost by your rigging, and reduce the need for other rigging connectors like Quicklinks and Shackles.
One of the most interesting use for The Swivel OPEN by PETZL is in the setup of a Strap Kit. Normally you would have a Spreader Plate, a Quicklink, then a Swivel, followed by another Quicklink and finally your Straps. Even if you were using a Rock Exotica Shackle Swivels you would still need to use at least one Quicklink. With The Swivel OPEN by PETZL you would be saving between 3" to 6" in your final assembly.
The same set-up can be used with Dance Trapeze or Double Rope Hoop.
This it's a really great piece of equipment, well designed and ideal for use on circus props. We will be offering different options for a spreader plate with Swivel OPEN by Petzl as a ‘ Spread Plate KIT / PETZL '
