What is it?

The Gotcha Kit is a pre-assembled remote rescue system in compliance with EN1496 with individually CE Marked components. The pulley system provides a 3:1 or 4:1 mechanical advantage for lifting and includes a belay device to allow the user to control the rate of lowering safely. A telescopic pole enables the rescuer to attach the pulley system to the casualty remotely.


What can it be used for?

The Gotcha kit has been designed for either remote lifting, or lowering of a casualty for rescue. The system can be used for recovery of a casualty suspended on his fall arrest equipment without the need to cut him free, or put the rescuer at risk.

  • Suitable for rescue from Fall Arrest Lanyards and Fall Arrest Blocks.
  • This is a no-cut kit = The casualty is raised to release their original attachment.
  • Rescue direction = You can raise or lower the casualty with this kit.
  • Pre-Assembled = No assembly is required by user.
  • Remote attachment = The casualty can be attached from a point of safety.
  • Single person use =  The Gotcha Kit only requires a single rescuer to operate it. 
  • Maximum Working Length = The Gotcha kit is available in four lengths.
  • Colour coding = The kit is colour coded for simplicity.
