Here is a round-up of currently available belay devices. This is not a gear review, but we have listed simple belay devices with the blurb from the manufacturers here. The belay devices shown are not auto locking or assisted locking, and do not have 'Guide modes' for bringing up two seconds. They are simple devices akin to the traditional sticht plate. They all take two ropes with the exception of the Edelrid Jul, which is a single rope device. Also worth noting is that the RRP for the Metolius device includes a carabiner.
Looking for a new belay device? Thinking of buying your climbing partner a Christmas present? This list of belay devices might give you a helping hand.
