The main problem with the belay carabiner on the harness has always been to keep it in the correct position both with and without the rope. Same problem in rappelling.
Grivel has designed a totally new carabiner where a simple second wire gate isolates the belay loop and keeps the proper orientation even with the carabiner door open. To place the Clepsydra is a totally automatic and intuitive operation.

– Closed belay loop even with the carabiner door open
– Totally automatic operation
