The G-Saver II is a retractable fall arrest device incorporating a rescue winch to raise or lower a person to safety. The G-Saver II should be used in fall arrest mode, with the winch mechanism disengaged, to protect a person from the danger of a fall. Should a fall occur, cable is pulled out of the unit at an accelerating rate. This quickly arrests the user and cushions the fall. The winch mechanism can then be engaged to raise or lower the person to safety. This eliminates the need for additional equipment to retrieve the user and also prevents the user from remaining suspended for extended periods of time, greatly simplifying the recovery process. With the suspended load removed and the winch mechanism disengaged, the cable retracts automatically back into the unit, regaining its fall protection function.
The G-Saver II is both well proven and durable.
