High Angle Solutions – DMM Pivot Belay Device


The new DMM Pivot is a modern belay device that caters for modern belaying techniques with modern ropes. Meticulously researched and developed to provide optimum performance both belaying from the harness, and direct from the anchor. The Pivot provides smooth paying out, a secure and confident catch, and controlled lowering. The head turner is the innovative pivot – this patent pending solution shifts the lever arrangement to allow easily initiated and controlled lowering when used in guide/direct mode. Even with a weighty second, the belayer can lower one, both, or either second with total control using the specially shaped biner cavity. Once the top is reached, the Pivot will be a trustworthy abseil partner for the return to the base. Perfect for alpine, winter, and multi-pitch trad.


The grey surface finish shown is the new DMM Tactical color which has been chosen for its ability to blend into a far wider variety of environments. Additionally, the carabiner shown in the above image is the Flat Dark Earth color finished in DMM’s Cerakote option, which will be covered in more detail in a future feature.

High Angle Solutions is a new weekly feature by DMM and CTOMS.
