  • V-shaped friction channels with asymmetric side grooves adapt the rope friction for better control
  • Rope-friendly design separates the 2 strands of rope when belaying or rappelling with half / twin ropes; this helps prevent the ropes from twisting or knotting
  • Keeper cable will not get pulled into the device, and keeps it in the optimal position while also helping to prevent dropping the device
  • Usage diagram engraved on device for ease of use
  • Use with symmetric locking carabiners to maximize efficiency no matter which end is closest to the device

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lightweight, simple I've been using this ATC for several months since it came in the harness kit. I would give it 4 stars, since I like that it is fairly small and lightweight, however I have noticed that it doesn't provide as much friction on the rope as I would like (even with no wear). Not as much as the Black Diamond ATC-XP, for example. This just means you'll have to actively pull a bit harder with your brake hand if there is enough of a weight difference between you and the climber. Not a deal breaker to me, but worth taking off 1 star!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic buy Bought this and got it within two days; faster that proposed. It works very well and it is a good price for a good, classic belay device. I recommend it!
