Rated 5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Functional, Dependable, Classic I've had one of these since the beginning. Never had any issues, works well with a variety of rope sizes. No durability or quality issues whatsoever. Great device to learn on. Easy to see when it's loaded wrong. October 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by simple, light, not expensive simple, almost impossible to rig wrong, provides great friction for belay, really shines as a rappel device too; cheap enough to replace when showing wear, or when someone you climb with drops it off a cliff April 23, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple and Effective I work in a college climbing gym and we use these as well as pretzel grigris and i personally like these better. I have both the ATC-Guide Belay/Rappel Device and this one and they function equally well. September 28, 2013
