The lightweight, multipurpose Petzl Reverso 3 belay device can be used with a wide variety of rope sizes for controlled belaying and rappelling.

  • Intuitive self-braking Reverso mode allows the lead climber to belay 1 or 2 seconding climbers directly from an anchor point
  • Clip a carabiner to the carabiner hole and give a tug to easily and gradually release the loaded device while in Reverso mode
  • Device can be quickly changed from self-braking mode to belaying the leader when climbing long multipitch routes
  • Reverso 3 provides effective braking on half and twin ropes 7.5mm in diameter and larger; works with 8.9mm and larger single ropes
  • V-shaped channels with asymmetric grooved sidewalls increase friction on thin ropes for controlled belaying and lowering
  • Rope-friendly design will not kink ropes regardless of the mode used
  • Usage diagrams for standard belay and Reverso modes are laser etched onto the Petzl Reverso 3 belay device
  • In an emergency, the braking mechanism allows device to be used as an ascender
