For this reason, the unit is more ergonomic and compact than its competitors and slides easier on the rope with no excessive locking.

By its unique design, the user can adjust his position with one hand, even if the device is tensioned.

Tractel Stopfor AP Automatic Guided Fall Prevention Device - Optional Connectors and Rope

The Stopfor AP is a component in a fall arrest system. It consists of a stranded rope, the sliding rope grab with automatic locking attached to the rope and a lanyard connecting the rope grab to the harness. The Stopfor AP has two tripping systems: the conventional system which operates by the swivelling of the operating lever, and the new “anti-panic” system. It also has a locking function. The Stopfor AP allows the user maximum mobility while providing total safety for work on a vertical plane. In the event of a fall, two separate tripping systems engage the jaw on the rope and stop the fall smoothly. With the conventional tripping system, the operating lever is free and swivels by the action of the force applied by the user via the lanyard with the new “anti-panic” system, if the lever is held.

Tractel Stopfor S guided rope fall arrestor device - Optional Connectors and Rope The Stopfor S is an individual, vertical, sliding fall arrest device. It ensures protection against falls when a user moves vertically along an anchorage line (textile rope), but provides  free vertical movement at normal speed. The housing may be opened by using the captive screw and flat bolt. Locking is due to the differential speed which engages an eccentric cam during the fall, between the user and the device on its support. The energy is absorbed by the lengthening of the support (>10%) and by the sliding movement along it. The device has a locking ring which prevents attachment to the support upside down. An arrow indicates the correct direction of movement and position for attachment to the support.
