Guide: How to Buy a Belay Device

The two most common types of belay devices are tube style and assisted braking. Tube style devices are simple to operate, compact, and can be used for every style of climbing as well as rappelling. Assisted braking devices use a camming mechanism to aid in stopping a climber's fall, and are most often used for sport climbing.

All belay devices require a carabiner with a locking gate to securely attach the belay device to the harness of the belayer. Some belay carabiners include a mechanism to prevent cross loading.
