Has a good point, adding extra safety controls is always a good practice.

Hey Frank,

Good stuff. We have added a few wraps on the lower rung to act as a brake for heavier "loads" and to compensate for the possible dynamic load if the FF or unconscious victim loads the rope before the belay man is ready.

Keep up the good work,
