Description

J Racks (aka Cole Racks in recognition of John Cole the inventor of the rappel rack) are intended to connect via the eye on the longer leg. The short leg of the rack should be oriented down and away from the user. Longer racks provide space the use more bars as well as provide more space for spreading out the bars. What this means is that the user is given a greater control range, in effect a larger “sweet spot” within which the correct amount of friction is developed for safe operation. Effective as either a rappel or lowering device, a distinct advantage to J Racks is the option of adding or removing bars while under load or on rappel, providing the user a greater range of friction and control. Racks may be used with a wide range of rope diameters and the rope, or in some cases ropes, and tends not to twist the rope as may occur when using a Figure 8 descender.
