DMM Pivot Belay Device


DMM’s Pivot belay device promotes confidence while belaying with its effective stopping power, whether it’s used in guide mode or belaying from the waist. The unique shackle of the DMM Pivot reduces the force needed to start lowering, eliminating one of the biggest problems of guide plates. The Pivot increases control over the speed you lower your second.

The Pivot belay device promotes confidence and provides exceptional ease of use while keeping weight down to a featherweight 72 grams.

The Pivot is designed to provide effective stopping power whether it’s used in guide mode or belaying from the waist. Traditional guide plates are often difficult to operate when lowering seconds, which reduces the user’s control over the speed of lowering. The Pivot’s unique shackle resolves this issue by reducing the amount of force needed to initiate and adjust the speed of lowering. This creates a smooth, secure and safe belay process, increasing the confidence of both the user and the second.

  • Belay device gives controlled belaying, lowering and abseiling.
  • Pivot enables guide mode and gives easy controlled lowering of two seconds.
  • High-performance internal geometry gives greater rope control.
  • Hot forging and CNC technology are 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 abseiling on thick or low stretch ropes.
