The CMC Triskelion is the first industrial rescue tripod certified to NFPA standards and the new benchmark for rapid deployment, ease of use, and versatility. With its 5.5-10 ft working height, additional CE certifications, and accessible features, the Triskelion delivers greater safety and efficiency for confined space and industrial rescues.

SKU: 760001 Category:


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”.
