    Assisted-braking belay devices
    Concept
    When the climber falls, the device pivots on the carabiner, the rope tightens and the cam pinches and blocks the rope.
    Holding the brake side of the rope helps engage the cam; therefore, it is important to always hold the brake side of the rope
    To lower the climber on a top-rope, the belayer gradually pulls the release handle, without letting go of the brake-side rope.
    The handle helps adjust the friction, but the descent is controlled by the hand gripping the brake-side rope.
    Assisted brakingProgressive friction control
    Advantages
    - assisted braking in the event the climber falls
    - especially useful for working a route: trying a move over and over, holding the climber...
    - easily controlled, progressive rope feed provides a smooth and comfortable descent
