Topic - Double rope belay device for big weight difference

Wiley Coyote - on 06 Dec 2012
Mrs C is taking up climbing but we have a big weight differential between us so I'm looking for a belay device for her. Personally I use an ATC which is simple, effective and never failed me though I also have a gri-gri for belaying people working routes and for top roping.
However there is a big weight difference between us (almost 50pc - 13.5st plays 9st) so the chances are that sooner or later she may be lifted into the air and perhaps bounced against the rock, ground belays not always being available. So I'd like some kind of auto locking device for her to use. I'm looking at the Click-up for single rope/sport which seems a reasonable compromise between fiddly and effective.
Does anyone know of a similar system that would work with double ropes for mountain trad?
