New semi-automatic belay system for double ropes. It offers easinees of use and great security because it blocks the rope semi-automatically in case of a fall. Allows the use of double ropes, single ropes and twin ropes with a range between 7.5 and 11 mm. Attempts to find an automatic belay system for double ropes have been unsuccessful up until now. In case of an unexpected fall the TRE blocks the ropes with a 20-30 cm rope slip, but if you´re alert it can be blocked as a normal belay plate. For belaying the leader or the second. Can also be used for abseiling/rappeling.
- The TRE rope-brake is not an fully automatic belaying device. The brake hand must always remain on the rope at all times.
- It can be used for belaying one or two followers, for belaying one leading person and for rappeling. The Tre rope brake can be clipped to the belt or to a secure anchor - but it must be free to move in any direction necessary.
- In case of a fall the cross-bolt will be forced into the handle and lock the rope against the frame (this is similar to self-locking devices).
