Belay Devices - Trango Cinch
This auto braking belay device is perfect for indoor walls and sports crags, giving automatic quick response to falls, taking some of the pressure from the belayer (although it still doesn't mean the belayer can daydream).
It is design for single rope use from 9.4mm to 11mm diameter (although experienced belayers may be happy with slightly thinner ropes). It is simple to use and offers a secure belay on a wide range of single ropes.
On smaller diameter ropes, or when holding falls that generate extremely high loads (in excess of factor 1) the Cinch acts dynamically as the cam squeezes the rope, assisting in holding a fall and reducing shock loads to the belay system. In addition, it will release easily and pay out the rope smoothly while you're abseiling or lowering off.
