The Multi Purpose Device from CMC allows you to go from lowering to raising without changing hardware. It has taken more than nine years of research and development to create the patented Multi-Purpose Device (MPD), which features major innovations in advanced technical hardware for rope rescue professionals.

The CMC MPD is UL Classified as a Pulley, Descent Control, and Belay device.

The MPD’s high efficiency pulley, with an integral rope-grab mechanism allows it to be used as a lowering device on the main line and belay line systems whilst being quickly changed over to a raising system without switching out or replacing any hardware. The combination of essential features into a single device simplifies onsite rigging, expediting the rescue. 

Some of the Key Features

  • Faster Rigging
  • Reduced Weight
