PROGRESSIVE DESCENT CONTROL: 3:1 mechanical advantage of the camming mechanism helps smoothly control the rope and reduce lowering efforts regardless of rope diameter.
CAM-ASSISTED BLOCKING: Cam-assisted blocking ensures a comfortable belay—when the climber falls or weights the rope—the cam in the device automatically cinches down to arrest the rope. Compatible with 8.5 to 11 mm dynamic single ropes.
ANTI-PANIC HANDLE: If the user pulls too hard on the handle, the anti-panic function engages, stopping the climber's descent. Great for newer belayers and partners with large weight differences.
MULTIPLE BELAY MODES: The lockable selector knob allows you to choose either top rope or lead belay mode. Top rope belay mode makes taking in slack easier and long belay sessions more comfortable.
STEEL WEAR PLATE: The stainless steel wear plate provides extra protection for the high-wear area on the GRIGRI (near the brake side of the rope).
[Double Slots Construction]: NewDoar descending Belay device offers effective braking to half, twin and single ropes, 8~11mm/( 0.315-0.433 inch). Breaking Strength: 25KN, Used with half, single or twin ropes.
[Assures Safety]:High-modified ""tube"" style belay device and V-shaped groove channel, friction mode offers 3 times greater hold and stopping power than regular friction mode.
[TOOTHED GROOVE DESIGN]:The V-groove rope device has a toothed groove design, which can reduce the wear of the rope when it is braking, and it is not easy to cause the rope to become entangled,hope the small design can bring safety to the climbers.
[Widely Application]:such as rock climbing, caving, hiking, canyoning, outdoor training, engineering works, high-altitude operations, rescue, adventure and more.
rope release and drop blocking are done using standard safety techniques; always keep your hand on the brake side of the rope.
Convenience and safety, thanks to the assisted brake: during a fall, the insurer holds the locking end of the rope, the cam rotates and tightens the rope, increasing the braking until the rope stops running.
Compatible with 8.5-11mm dynamic single strings, optimized for 8.9-10.5mm
It has diagrams engraved on the equipment itself (inside and outside), which guide on the correct installation of the rope.
Keep Your Safety: It uses the friction between the rope and the Descender device to slow down the descent or brake. Extra thick with ears and belay slot will keep your safety, even in a rescue or emergency situation.
Superior Braking Resistance: Breaking strength 11,000 lbf (50KN/5000kg). Allows for smooth rope action while descending or belaying, offers superb control on rope.
Figure 8 Descender: Big Wall Climbings Terminal 8 with Ears is an improvement over standard figure 8 devices with improved breaking and safety features.
EASY LOCK-OFF: With bent-ear, locking yourself off with both hands free will be much easier and safer.
It Applies To: Suitable for Mountain Climbing, Rock Climbing, Ice Climbing, Rescue, Working-At-Height, Technical Rope Rescue, Climbers, Cavers and Sport Rappelers
