Non-Assisted Belay Devices

How to choose the right belay device for you?

There are several different belay devices out there. We divided them up in 3 main categories, tubularfigure eight and assisted braking. 

These systems all work in a similar way, it is thanks to the friction between the device and the climbing rope that they are able to brake a fall.

Non Assisted Belay Devices

A general rule of non assisted belay devices is that on these, the belayer absolutely needs to keep their hand on the brake end of the rope and keep this hand below the braking plane of the device at all time! If the hand is above the braking plane and the climber takes a fall, the rope will just slide through the climber's hand and most likely leave him with a serious rope burn. With the right safety training however, non-assisted braking devices can offer a super smooth belay experience.

The choices are endless and difficult today so contact our Customer Service or send us a mail to help you choose the right product for your needs.
