The Stop from Petzl is a belay device with assisted-braking. It’s a reliable and safe device that is mainly used in speleology. The abseiling speed can be optimally controlled by the ergonomically shaped handle and assisted-braking. Plus, its handle is very precise and ensures a great power transfer to optimally control the rope. Luckily, the device is easy to use and to prevent any mistakes, it even shows the correct rope installation steps directly on the device. Most importantly, the stainless steel and aluminium Stop is durable and features a safety clip, allowing you to attach it to your harness to prevent it from getting lost and even makes it easier to attach and remove.
