In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

Zap-O-Mat by Edelrid

World's First Adjustable Belay Device

Zap-O-Mat by Edelrid

With its adjustable tension spring the Zap-O-Mat by Edelrid is the world's first adjustable belay device. The ingenious idea of having a loaded spring in the handle means the Zap-O-Mat is ideal for every sport climbing situation and for every belayer regardless of weight or rope thickness. Soft or dynamic belaying is possible without having to jump. Push the green „spring load“ button in (as in the picture above), and the rope can be paid out easily for on sight or red point attempts. Release the spring by pushing the button on the bottom side of the handle and the central bolt moves easily and the Zap-O-Mat blocks quickly. Ideal for working routes or when the climber is heavier than the belayer. When lowering, the integrated karabiner arrester prevents the unit from being pushed to far thus increasing the braking power. The perfect device for the safety and comfort conscious climber. Useable for single ropes between 8.9 mm and 10.5 mm. The Zap-O-Mat is a hybrid tuber unit and not a semi automatic belay device.
