Yes to secure yourself.
You clip the sling on your harness, and in parallel, you use an abseiling device to get down.

We call it "Machard" in France.
It is supposedly better with a locking carabiner indeed. But with an express you have more space to move around.
Thanks !

well this special type of knot is called marshal knot.it has one-way lock ability.prussik in the other hand has two way locking ability but has less grip than marshal.if use a carabiner with it the carabiner SHOULD NOT be used as a load holder.and to get the best grip you should use 4 turn on the main rope.less or more turns would cause decrease in knot`s grip.
