Description

The Triskelion’s impressive working height range adapts to fit low-clearance areas and extends to haul patients in full-size litters. Unique features include its compatibility with cable and rope up to 13 mm (1/2 in), anchor points for pulley systems, multiple winch mounting options, rectangular legs with built-in stoppers, tethered push pins, high contrast graphics, pivoting feet, quick-connect webbing hobble strap, and reinforced carry bag for single or two-person transport. The Triskelion is also supported by thoughtful accessories that enhance its capabilities and make it even easier to use.

The Triskelion’s modern, user-friendly design increases both the safety and efficiency of each rescue. In the words of CMC School Instructor Doug McElmury, “The Triskelion is easily the most user friendly and practical tripod I have used in my 36 years in technical rescue. From the head to the feet, this well-designed tripod shows that CMC listened to what rescuers wanted and made it a reality”.
Triskelion Features:

Height

10ft max working height allows rescuers to haul patients from a confined space using a harness or litter
5.5ft min working height facilitates access to low-clearance areas

Rigging

Two head-mounted stainless steel pulleys compatible with cable and rope up to 13 mm (1/2 in)
Three side-plate anchor points ideal for 4:1s like the CSR2 pulley system
Three tie-off points for additional rigging or stabilization
Several mounting options for the Harken LokHead Winch and DBI-Sala Salalift II Winch

Legs

Rectangular shape prevents spinning and properly aligns adjustment holes and tripod feet
Built-in stoppers keep the inner legs from pulling out all the way, allowing full extension without risk of separation
4 in leg height increments enable maximum tripod extension in height constricted areas

Pins

Legs are secured using large, quick-action, ball-lock push pins that are easily handled with gloves
Push pins reassuringly snap into place and robust lanyards keep them from getting lost or separated

Graphics

High contrast graphics are easy to see in low light
Leg height numbering is clearly communicated in noisy environments
Additional icons guide winch installation to align with head-mounted pulleys

Feet

Pivoting feet adapt the Triskelion to a variety of surfaces and angles
Feet have non-slip tread for hard floors and spiked tips for soft earth

Hobble

Red webbing hobble strap secures all three legs at the base with a single quick-connect Cobra Buckle
Single webbing strap is lighter than chain and faster than using multiple lengths of material
Red color is bright and easy to see, drawing attention to the strap and reducing risk of a trip hazard

Bag

Includes a reinforced carry bag with a diagram indicating proper orientation for balanced single-person transport
Easily carried by two people using the end handles, or a single person using the padded center shoulder strap
