The Freino is designed to allow for the easy addition of friction to the rope control system, making it an invaluable item for anyone who relishes their reputation as a faultless belayer or spends their days descending ropes in a professional setting. It is simple to use, the snap-gate allowing the rope to be redirected and secured over the friction spur without having to open the karabiner, also permitting one-handed removal.
It has a keylock nose on the main gate to prevent snagging, and a self-locking Twist-Lock barrel for maximum security.
Petzl recommend it for the Grigri belay devices, and the Stop, Huit, Huit Antibrulure and Simple descenders (in a Single Rope set up)
