Guide Mode Belay Devices are ATC-style belay plates that have a 'guide mode' function, allowing them to be used with an auto-locking belay technique.
Used as normal devices when belaying a leader, Guide Mode Belay Devices are equipped with an additional metal loop to allow direct attachment to the anchor and to facilitate assisted-locking capabilities. This function can be used when bringing up a second with either one rope or two, so it is set up in a way which locks automatically if a climber falls.
