Self-Braking Belay Device. This unique belay device for ropes works much like an automobile’s seat belt. When movements are slow, the rope runs freely through the device; when there is a shock load, it locks, jamming the rope with its internal cam device. This device can help eliminate some potential belaying errors, but not all of them. The Grigri is not a substitute for skilled, vigilant belaying. Works on 10mm to 11mm ropes.
Made in France.
