CMC MPD Descender | Pulley | Belay Device


This Three-In-One Pulley, Descent Control Device and Belay Device, Enables Quicker, Safer Rescues



The combination of essential features into this single device simplifies on-scene rigging and saves precious time during a rescue. A high-efficiency pulley, a variable-friction descent control device and a belay device in one, the CMC MPD Descender is the result of more than nine years of research and development. A major innovation in advanced technical hardware for rope rescue professionals, the MPD allows you to go from lowering to raising without changing hardware.

The product’s pulley, including integral rope-grab mechanism enables lowering on the main line and belay line systems, and can be quickly changed into a raising system without switching out or replacing hardware. The MPD was designed to check all these boxes:

Reduced Weight
Fewer Components
Faster Rigging
Quick Changeovers
Simplified Training
Lower Risk

Variable-friction descent control device for rescue systems and rappels
Incorporates a high efficiency pulley with an integral rope-locking mechanism (ratchet) for a haul system
Built-in becket allows cleaner rigging and more efficient pulley systems
Allows main line and belay line rigging to be mirrored or twin-tensioned
Functions as both a lowering brake and as a ratcheting pulley for raising
Ideal for confined space operations because it converts rapidly to a retrieval line
The MPD includes a protective Cordura® nylon storage bag and MPD User’s Manual.
