Product Description

The Port-A-Wrap is a lightweight and compact rope friction device designed for lowering heavy wood in a controlled manner. Designed by arborists Scott Prophett and Norm Hall in the early 90s, the Port-A-Wrap has been proven a highly dependable and effective tool in sparing properties the damage inflicted by free-falling tree parts.

In the past, a ground worker’s main option for rope-controlling heavy wood was to wrap the line’s running end around a nearby tree, often candy-striping the “wrap tree” from bark-scorching surface friction. But now, in the time it once took to coil up a lowering line and walk it around a tree, the modern arborist can have a Port-A-Wrap prepped and ready for multiple lowering tasks. Quickly wrapped and unwrapped between loads, the Port-A-Wrap makes lowering wood out of a tree a smooth and simple process, all in a small, easily maintained space. And unlike the ever-changing tree trunk surface, the Port-A-Wrap presents predictable and unchanging friction to ropes, allowing the groundsman to concentrate strictly on the dynamics of the activity above.

This Port-A-Wrap also has significant corrosion resistance, made from rust-PROOF stainless-steel that will stand up to the worst heat, salt and humidity that a coastal company can throw at it. Also included is a Scott Prophett special feature--a tree-protecting cap that bumpers the targeted tree from gouging whenever the Port-A-Wrap gets slapped with a nasty load.

  • Used for controlled lowering
  • Works via friction--the rigging line wraps around the Port-A-Wrap, and the more you wrap the more friction you generate
  • Allows the rigger on the ground to control the speed and pace of limb lowering with tremendous leverage over heavy loads
  • Rigging line can be securely tied off should the ground man need to step away
  • Pair with dead-eye slings, whoopie slings or loopie slings
