This versatile belay and rappel device can function like a figure 8, belay tube, or belay plate - all in one compact frame.
The ATS has multiple hyper-horns, which allow for a wide range of varying friction and lock-offs. The design of the ATS makes it equally useful to right or left-handed climbers. A rubber-grommeted carabiner hole provides a tight fit with a Petzl or Rock Exotica carabiner and keeps the ATS device situated perfectly.

This descender can be configured SO many ways

I got it in 2017 for the versatility. It goes into tree with me every climb as an emergency descent option, except when I rig it on a single climb line for potential emergency lowering by ground person. We tested this recently and it performed exactly as desired.
