Confined Space Rescue Tripod & Accessories

safety equipment: TR3 rescue tripod

Checkmate TR3 Rescue Tripod:
  • Suitable for multiple uses, from lowering personnel to providing fall protection in confined space environments.
  • Serves as an invaluable tool for providing access to confined spaces that would otherwise be inaccessible.
  • Provides an anchor point for suspended work but can also be used as a fall arrest point.
  • Using a worm gear winch, the rescue tripod can be used to lower material up to 550 lbs. or personnel up to 310 lbs. when paired with a fall arrest block.

*Safety Notes: For personnel lifting/lowering, an operator must always be next to the tripod to operate the winch and fall arrest block. In the case of a fall, the rescue mechanism will engage to raise or lower the fallen worker. You must always use the fall arrest block in conjunction with the winch when using the tripod for personnel.

Anchoring Products
