dmm bug
belay device




The DMM Bug belay device is simple and classic. The Bug is slick enough to allow a quick release of rope, just when it’s needed, but secure enough to allow a firm lock-down in the event of a fall. With slightly more mass than most other belay devices, the DMM Bug belay device provides superb control and remarkably good heat dissipation on rappel. It is designed to work within the 8.5–11mm rope diameter range.
