Petzl Grigri Plus Belay Device GRIGRI + is a belay device with assisted braking and anti-panic handle. Compatible with single ropes from 8.5 to 11 mm. Its wear plate makes it suitable for intensive use, both in the gym and at the crag. Built for multi-purpose use, the Petzl Grigri Plus Belay Device can be used for both gym and crag climbing. Like many belay devices, the Petzl Grigri Plus uses standard belay techniques for feeding slack and catching falls so you'll always have to keep a hand on the brake side of the rope. The Grigri also boasts assisted braking to help you stop when you begin to fall. When you lose your footing and begin to fall, the device pivots on the carabiner, tightens the rope, pinches the cam and brakes the rope; bringing you to a stop. (Holding the brake side of the rope helps engage the cam; therefore, it is important to always hold the brake side of the rope.) Compatible with a broad range of single rope diameters, the Grigri Plus can be used with 8.5 to 11mm ropes and optimized for 8.9 to 10.5mm ropes plus, rope installation diagrams have been engraved on both the interior and exterior of the device to help you stay safely attached. For increased durability, a stainless steel wear plate has been added to the belay to give you peace of mind after intensive use. An ergonomic handle allows you to easily unblock the rope and lower somebody down whilst the easily controlled progressive rope feed provides a smooth and comfortable descent. The Petzl Grigri Plus Belay Device is simple to use for learners and instructors, it features an anti-panic handle which stops descents when a user pulls on the handle too hard. Additionally, a selector knob enables the choice of either top-rope or lead belay mode. The top-rope belay mode facilitates taking in slack and makes for a more comfortable belay; it is possible to lock the belay mode. Lastly, the Petzl Grigri Plus Belay Device is lightweight, compact and durable for easy carrying.
