Jaws™ is the most versatile belay device you can buy. Period. When you need a positive and secure lock-off, run the brake side of the ropes through the unique double V-notches. In this configuration, Jaws™ has more stopping power than any other belay/rappel device we can find. Turn Jaws™ around and run the braking rope over the smooth side when you need a lightning fast feed on trad or alpine terrain. Don’t worry about catching a fall, because in this mode Jaws™ has similar braking abilities to our Pyramid™.
- Rappels are smooth and controlled with Jaws™. The large rope slots make it easy to set up, the V-notches control the speed and the flat rope path really prevents kinking. For low-angle or long double rope rappels, you can turn Jaws around so the free end of the rope runs over the smooth side.
- Recommended Rope Diameters: Twin Ropes - 7.5mm,Half Ropes - 8.2mm or larger, Single Ropes - 8.9 - 11mm
