Developed specifically to meet the needs of rescue system belays, the 540 Rescue Belay is a self-locking device that meets a demanding drop-test criteria — able to hold falling loads quickly while limiting the peak force. This well-engineered device is easy to rig and the symmetrical design reduces the risk of improper loading. A built-in release lever releases the tension on the belay rope, eliminating the need for a release hitch. Designed for use with kermantle rescue ropes from 7/16”(11.5mm) to 1/2” (13mm.)
