Harken Industrial Wingman (NFPA G Rated)

Harken’s new Wingman applies new design and technology to achieve more from a compact personal mechanical advantage system. Wingman’s innovative design makes it among the first offerings in this category to achieve internal progress capture mechanically within the unit rather than relying on prusiks to achieve that externally. Wingman combines a ratcheting sheave to stop the rope with a composite handle or wing the operator can open and close under load for a well-modulated ‘fine-tuned’ release.

Under full load even with the sheaves pulled completely together, the system may be released quite easily–with full control using one hand on the wing and the other tending the line. The Wingman has a minimum overall length of just 8” which means more clearance under a tripod and more throw during a pick-off. The device is also ideal for creating adjustable directionals, work positioning and much more. It may be configured as a 4:1 or 5:1 mechanical advantage system. These revolutionary features plus ball bearings within the sheaves that maximize efficiency for raising and lowering loads of up to 681lbs, makes Wingman a simple tool you will always want at your side. NFPA “G” and EN 12278 certifications are pending. Comes in a industrial-grade ballistic nylon carrying case with a locking buckle. Case includes a drawstring and drain grommets to separate unit and line for proper deployment and line drying.

The WingMan is a mechanical-advantage device for load lifting and releasing. It is used in fall protection or work-at-height systems. It is intended for work at height, access, and rescue use. It can be used for human suspension for up to a 3 kN load. The WingMan consists of two swivel pulleys and a manufacturer-supplied rope. One pulley is a double with a becket to dead end the rope. The other pulley is a double with a ratchet and cammed sheave with a releasing handle allowing the gradual release of the mechanical advantage system under load. The releasing handle is located at the operator’s end. Anodized aluminum is used throughout the pulleys. The handle is glass-reinforced nylon. The rope is an 8 mm static polyester with a sewn termination and is not to be substituted. Pulleys have stainless steel axles and fasteners. The ratchet mechanism is stainless steel.


  • Min Breaking Strength: 45 kN / 10116 lb
  • Maximum Working Load: 3 kN / 647 lb / 300 kg
  • Slip Load: 4 kN / 900 lbf
  • Weight: 3.2 lbs (including bag)

The load limit specifications stated here are based on rope supplied by Harken. Use of the system with any other rope will affect the performance and void the warranty.
