The Latchways personal rescue device is designed as a simple and reliable means of self rescue. It’s worn as part of a standard harness and with Latchways patented components, it takes up very little space. Activation is simple and done by just pulling the cord. It also has a secondary release mechanism built in.

The ‘backpack’ is small and neat, never getting in the way, it just becomes part of everyday workwear for the engineer. It’s also robust enough to stand up to the elements when working outside.
