Topic - Petzl Basic for shunting/self-belay

humptydumpty - on 18 Sep 2013
Thinking of getting one of these for shunting, but a bit confsued:

The Petzl website has instructions for setting it up for self-belay:
http://www.petzl.com/en/outdoor/product-experience/self-belay-solo-climbing/introduction

But also the manual for the (presumably new-model) Basic says: "Self-belaying is prohibited" - http://www.petzl.com/files/all/technical-notice/Pro/B18-BASIC.pdf

Does that mean the old basic is good but the new one not?

Also, the self-belay page says to attach to the top attachment hole, whereas the manual suggests the bottom should be used... which is correct?
