The Belay Gate is a simple way to reinforce the proper use of auto belay devices and minimize risk from climbing error. Routesetters are encouraged to use the Belay Gate to cover starting holds, thereby limiting the likelihood of climbers starting a route without first clipping in.Printed warnings and bright colors also help to make the Belay Gate an effective safety component for any TRUBLUE installation.
While not in use, the auto belay clips into triangular Belay Gate, blocking the initial foot holds and hand holds of a climbing lane. Once the climber transfers the auto belay carabiner from the gate to their harness, the Belay Gate lays flat on the floor, opening the climbing lane and alerting others there is a climber above. Premium foam core gives the gate structure to block climbing access until users are properly attached.
The two adjustable lower loops can be attached directly to the wall with screws, under small holds, or to bolt hangers. The words 'Clip In' are in plain view when the gate is up on the wall, and the words 'Climber Above' warns others when the auto belay is in use.
The Rectangular Belay Gate is built with premium core foam and contains two carbon fiber rods, allowing it to retain its shape, regardless of whether it is hanging upright or laying down.
