Pivot Belay Device
The Pivot is an innovation in guide plates. Exhaustive internal testing followed by consultation with Mountain Guides and other outdoor professionals has created a product that stands apart from the competition. The pivot moves the point of rotation closer to the load for easily initiated and controlled lowering of a second in guide mode. The design utilises the flow of metal in the hot forging process to create the organic shape of the finished product. Raw materials are chosen for both their quality and the handling characteristics they give the device. Excess aluminium from the manufacturing process is recycled, and strict adherence to 6 sigma reduces waste to an absolute minimum.
“Small changes can make a big difference,” explained the judges when selecting the belay device by DMM. The angles are perfect and the craftsmanship and material convinced the judges’ panel. “A beautifully made piece of gear” is the verdict.
