The new generation of rope lock has arrived. The Restrictor
rope lock prevents release of the rope when an out-of-balance
condition exists. If the operator cannot overcome the imbalance
by physical strength the rope lock will not disengage. The
unique handle and cam design enables the Restrictor rope lock
to remain closed without the use of an oval ring in an out-of-balance
situation. With all steel construction and 41/2" long
shoes that grip the rope, the Restrictor is the strongest
rope lock on the market.
With the ability to mount on any standard
locking rail as well as Tiffin Scenic Studios, Inc. heavy duty
locking rail, the Restrictor rope lock is great for new and
existing installations. For more information on the Restrictor
rope lock, contact Tiffin Scenic Studios, Inc. or an authorized
