Self-locking brake designed for rappelling. It allows for very precise control of the descent speed. Self-locking system operates so that the rope is clamped and will not allow movement. To unlock, a lever must be depressed.
Rate of descent is controlled by the downward force pressing the free end of the rope.
Brake has a spring-loaded latch on the side, so it can be placed on the rope, without having to detach it from the harness.
Ascent is possible without changing the position of the brake, only with the addition of leg irons and another ascender
