The Edelrid Zap-O-Mat is the world's first adjustable belay device. The new ingenious new concept of having a loaded spring in the handle means that the Zap-O-Mat is ideal for every sport climbing situation and every belayer regardless of weight. By pushing the green “spring load” button, the rope can be paid out easily for on sight and red point attempts. The spring is released by pushing the button on the bottom side of the handle, allowing the central bolt to move easily and the Zap-O-Mat to block quickly. The Zap-O-Mat is a hybrid tuber unit, not to be confused with an automatic belay device. It can handle ropes from 8.9mm-10.5mm and only weighs 135 grams.
