Compact Rigging

The Petzl Open Swivel is a high quality gated swivel with a 14mm opening on each half of the swivel. These gates allow you to reduce the weight and bulk of component systems by removing the need for a carabiner or two as the swivel can be attached directly.

The gates are opened with an Allen key (NOT supplied). The sealed, maintenance-free ball bearings in this swivel provide a smooth and reliable rotation. This open swivel is ideal for many aerial circus applications and helps to reduce the length of your rigging system.


  • Material: Aluminium
  • Gate size: 14mm
  • Weight: 130g

Great swivel for lower rig heights!

I ordered this swivel in the hopes of maximizing fabric length for the rig in my home with standard ceilings and have been very pleased with it! Though it takes longer to swap out, that is a small price to pay for the added height afforded by slipping the hollowblocks/spanset straight into the swivel without losing the valuable inches taken up by a carabiner. Would recommend!

Good solid reliable swivel

Nice neat and unobtrusive swivel, well balanced and sturdy.

A great space saver but not for every situation.

For a fixed or semi-fixed installation this swivel is really useful. It's compact anyway but because you don't need to add a caribiner each side of it you save loads of space over a standard set up. Not only that but because you need an allen key to fit and remove it it's less likely to be tampered with, removed or lost.
On the down side though needing an allen key can be a real pain when you can't find one! And I certainly wouldn't recommend this swivel for an installation which is being altered frequently. Oh, and one more thing, it would be incredibly easy to drop and lose the tiny screw especially if rigging out doors. Now that would be annoying.
