The innovative design ensures ease of adjustment to fit a variant of pole sizes and allows the user to easily adjust the device whilst working at height. The PoleCat includes ergonomically designed handles for the user as this was an issue mentioned countless times by linesmen and the cut resistant rope ensures that the user is safe and is at no risk of endangering themselves. Due to this the PoleCat cannot be cheated, and must be used in the correct and safe manner. The remarkable anti-slip design will instantly choke on the pole in the event of a fall. The device also has a built in shock absorber and can be manufactured with a choice of left or right handed orientation and the loose end of rope can be captive to avoid spiking of climbing irons.
