Details

We have all had ‘em! You know, the bad rope day. When your lines twist together like Twizzlers on steroids. Swivels are an option, but they lack a certain amount of flexibility. Captured eyes can be difficult to integrate into systems without an excess of connecting links. Permanently attached or threaded swivels are well … permanent.

Petzl now gives tree climbers the perfect cross and the balm for your twisted nightmares on rope. The Swivel Open acts like a wide-gate carabiner. The gates allow a wide variety of accessories and/or hardware. The sealed ball bearings allow proper equipment orientation and offer unparalleled smoothness, reliability, and longevity.

Let Petzl put a new twist…er. Take a twist out of your old setup, make it lighter and more compact—and work with you instead of against you.

SMOOTH AS BUTTAH! Review by Glosta Lorax

I use a steel core flipline with a Petzl micro-cender and have been looking for an acceptable swivel to attach it to my belt. This swivel does the trick. Easy to install with the removable gates, and just as easy to take off when I need to swap out for a non-steel lanyard. Used it in a tight 25' crab apple climb and it made the tougher line to lanyard transitions a lot faster than before trying to twist my lanyard the correct direction with one free hand. Honesty feel like its a bit expensive for what it is. (Posted on 4/11/2019)
"Excessive play between the two components.."?? Review by Matthew S.

I've used this item for probably less than ten climbs....and I've already noticed a considerable amount of--for lack of a better term--slop between the two components.. After going on Petzl's website, and going through their PPE inspection section, I'm somewhat confused.. What, exactly, is "excessive"? There aren't any reputable tree care stores around here, and the nearest Vermeer outlet is staffed by guys who are quite clearly pretty clueless as to practical, hands-on application of the products they sell... It's not like this item was cheap, and it's not like Petzl makes junk. I'm wondering whether to write this off as a hard-earned $75 waste of money....or to roll with the growing amount of slop in this gizmo, and take my chances that those Italians didn't push a product across the Atlantic that's perhaps not yet got the kinks worked out?
