Climbing Equipment Belay Devices CLIMBING - EQUIPMENT - Belay Devices

Belay BugBelay Devices
are simple and when correctly used and in conjunction with a large screw-gate karabiner and with a climbing rope this helps to increase the friction at the point of belay, thus stopping the fall or reducing the fall. They can either be a Anka, Bug, Betterbrake, Variable Controller and a Cardiac arrester. There are normal two [2] slots so that a single or double rope belaying can be used.

You can also use a Tuber, Belay Plate with spring [Original belay device] and a Belay Plate without the spring.

Variable ControllerBelay plates can also be used to abseil, it is advisable to use a descender if you are planning to do big abseils.

Always check the devices and the karabiner used for any sharp edges thus preventing the rope from being damaged. The belayer must be taught correctly how to feed the rope through these devices and what to do if there is a fall.

Always seek advice from the specialist outlets.
