NOT A RAPPELLING DEVICE

Do not use this a descender! When you set up your anchor, you thread this ring through the anchor cord/webbing. Then put your rope through the ring and rappel. It is intended solely as a hardware alternative to bail-out slings, webbing and cord.

What does this mean?

He means not to use it to actually rappel. This is to be used to thread your rope through at the top, not like an ATC or other rappel/belay device. Basically this would go on to your webbing and would be where your rope is supported at the top of your rappel, not hooked to your harness.
