Pivot - Phantom HMS Set (Fall 2021)
Confident belaying and easy use in guide mode
The Pivot belay device delivers confident belaying and effective stopping power whether used in guide mode, or belaying from the waist. Guide plates have traditionally been difficult to operate when lowering seconds. The Pivot's shackle reduces the force needed to initiate lowering, increasing control of the speed at which you lower your second.
Includes Phantom HMS locking carabiner: An extremely compact, lightweight and yet strong, true HMS shape carabiner that is ideally suited to belaying and rigging. Use of an extra-short gate means it can take two clove hitches with ease.
Fits Rope Size & Type:
half/twin: 7.3mm-9.2mm | single: 8.7mm-11mm
Pivot: 72 g
Phantom HMS: 56 g
Mfg Sku/Part Number:
• Belay device gives controlled belaying, lowering and rappelling: This device increases rope control when belaying, lowering a partner and rappelling. It is a fundamental part of a climber's rack.
• Pivot enables guide mode and gives easily controlled lowering of two seconds: The pivoting shackle moves the point of leverage when initiating lowering of your second. This vastly reduces the force needed to initiate and control lowering of one or two seconds, making guide mode more user-friendly.
• High performance internal geometry gives greater rope control: Hot forging and CNC technology is used to shape the internal structure of the device to give greater control over a wide range of ropes. This is especially evident when using modern, small diameter ropes.
• Two friction modes for varying applications: In its standard orientation, this device gives confident control over a wide variety of rope diameters. It can also be flipped 180° for smooth rappelling on thick or low-stretch ropes.
