Belaying the Son of Hulk on a scary runout? No problem. Need to make a 200-foot free rappel? Casual. Just got a new set of twin ropes that feel awfully skinny? No worries. Jaws is the versatile belay device to tackle it. When you need a positive and secure lock-off, run the brake side of the ropes through the unique double V-notches. In this configuration, Jaws has excellent stopping power. Turn it around and run the braking rope over the smooth side when you need a lightning fast feed on trad or alpine terrain.
Jaws has similar braking abilities to Trango's Pyramid. Rappels are smooth and controlled. The large rope slots make it easy to set up; the V-notches control the speed and the flat rope path really prevents kinking. For low-angle or long double rope rappels, you can turn the device around so the free end of the rope runs over the smooth side. Weighs 68 grams.
