Q/A

Is it possible to use the TAZ LOV2 as a replacement for the Petzl ASAP? Can both the descender and LOV2 as back-up be operated simultaneously safely, or should it be done alternately?
You can replace Petzl Asap by our device only you will have to manage its descent. 
When you use the LOV2 as fall arrest and when you operate the descender handle during the descent, we recommend that you pull the LOV2  alternately and to avoid holding it permanently. Indeed, the risk in case of a fall is to have a reflex to grasp the tool, and thus prevent its normal fall arrest operation.
In the case  you dont’t do it alternately, you will have to pull LOV2 fall arrester very lightly, with two fingers grabbing the opposite holes. How to do this properly is explained in our video series, available on Youtube and on our website.
