The Petzl Trigrest is an adjustable hand/finger rest for the Petzl Quark, Petzl Nomic and Petzl Ergo ice tools. It is easily fitted to the shaft and adjusted without the need for any tools. Just flick the bottom of it up to unlock it and move to the required position.
The Trigrest has two support positions: a brace for hand switching in the high position, and a brace for the index in the low position. The latter increases grip strength for leashless climbing and improves planting precision. The Trigrest may also be used in a fixed position, without the index support.
Please note: This item does not fit the old style Quark easily. It is possible to remove the lower trigger from the Trigrest, and use just the upper rest which will fit about 1 cm above the handle. It will not go right down against the top of the handle as the metal of the shaft actually gets slightly wider just before the handle. If used like this it really becomes a higher griprest rather than a trig rest for your 'trigger' finger.
It would probably be possible to 'persuade' the Trigrest to fit if you are prepared to file away some of the plastic. The same applies to the Petzlcharlet Aztar
