    • Multiple braking options and can be installed on the rope without removing it from the harness
    • Designed for use with canyoning descent techniques
    • Three different braking positions to select from before beginning a descent and two supplementary braking spurs allow friction to be varied during descent
    • A carabiner with a cross section of 12 mm provides a tight fit in the small hole, creating a rigid carabiner / descender unit
    • Stays securely attached to the harness during rope insertion, helping to prevent loss
    • Reduces the risk of leverage on the carabiner gate due to poor positioning, and when used correctly it prevents the formation of a lark's head hitch around the body and reduces kinks in the rope (without decreasing braking friction)
