In climbing, the following types of belay are used:

  • Top belay
  • Low belay

An Instruction Manual is attached to each auto insurance.

  • inspection, cheking and maintenance instructions;
  • instructions for the replacement of webbing line;
  • data about the manufacturer, certification, standards and marking of autobelay;

The speed of the climber's descent is 0.5-2 m/s.

The retraction speed of the webbing line is 2.7 m / s, which allows using the TwinPoint autobelay for practicing sport climbing on the speed with a standardized route with a height of 15.55 m.

TwinPoint autobelay designed for the weight of a climber from 10 to 150 kg. The weight does not affect the speed and smoothness of the descent.

You can read about the procedure for operating the autobelay in the Operating Manual in the Operating Instructions section, and watch the video here.

In order to preserve the guarantee and safety of operation, it is necessary to carry out routine inspection of autobelay. Timing: from the day of the start of use once a year, but not more than 50 000 descents.
