It can be used to descend in the same way as the standard figure 8.
In addition, the Bent Ear Figure 8 has an obvious advantage that by wrapping the rope around its ear, it can help people hang in middle air to appreciate the scenery or work in high level.
And also, wrapping the rope around ears can increase the friction and slow down the descending speed.
when use the Bent Ear Figure 8 to help you hang in the middle air, please first practice how to use it in the low air.
And after you become familiar with it, you can use it safely in the mid and high air.
Rescue 8 with bent ear is also widely used in Aerial Dance, especially aerial silk to make a super safe anchor.

AOKWIT 50kN FIGURE 8 DESCENDER
Bent-ear Figure 8 works as a much more versatile rappel device for SRT.
By wrapping the rope around its ear, it can help people hang in mid air.
It can increase the friction and slow down the descending speed.
Thick body largely decreases the abrasion or wear of rope to a minimum level.
The principle slot is large enough to double or triple your single rope to increase frictions for slow descent.
Used for rocking climbing, tree climbing, fire rescue, expand, mountaineering, caving, engineering protection, high level working, aerial silk.
