The BMS MICRO-RACK was originally designed for the caving community and has become the device of choice for both expedition and recreational cavers in the US. These closed frame racks offer increased strength and at the same time are almost one half the size of conventional open frame racks. The bars are fabricated from extra-heavy wall stainless steel tubing which yields unequaled resistance to abrasion. Under normal conditions they should supply a lifetime of use. Supplied with an extended top bar with pin (hyper-bar) the BMS Micro-Rack not only increases options for control of descent but also facilitates simple lock offs. The transition from locked off to descent or lower is smooth and easy.
BMS Micro-Racks are available in two frame lengths to accomodate a wide range of rope sizes and loads. They are also available with a second inverted hyper-bar below the top hyper-bar.This modification allows the user to take an additional wrap around the hyper-bars to further increase the load handling abilities of these devices. This modification has been widely accepted in the Fire and Search & Rescue communities as providing a compact and safe alternative to traditional 6 bar open frame racks.

I've trusted my life to this tool. It's solid and the dual hyperbars are really nice for locking off. The shorter length and less weight is nice compared to the larger racks I've used. This is a Must Buy for anyone wanting a controlled descent.

This is a straight forward, well made tool. I didn't mean to order the long version but can see some advantages when combined with my expanding girth.
