The Rescue 8 was designed as a decent control device, and has been adopted by the aerial rigging industry to serve as a rigging plate for aerial silks. Traditionally the silk is hitched into the hardware near the silks center point to create two "tails", which performers utilize for their practice. The horns also serve as a splinter for the two tails, enabling the climber to easily access each individual tail.
The use of rigging plates such as the Rescue 8 are becoming more and more common as the aerialist industry better learns about its historically dangerous practice of overloading carabiners.
