Climbing Technology Click Up
The Climbing Technology Click Up is a simple to use belay device with an adjustable locking system and fool-proof design that make it perfect for beginners, rock schools, and inexperienced sport climbers.
When arresting a fall, the Click Up will 'click up' through the carabiner, locking the rope. The user can then, whilst still holding the rope in the locked position with one hand, very quickly push the device back up into the belay position to release the rope and continue the belay. When descending, hold the rope with one hand in the locked position as is normal, then gently tip the device with the other to feed the rope and safely lower the climber.
The Climbing Technology Click Up thus makes mistakes easily preventable, whilst still being very simple, quick, and intuitive to use so as to not confuse climbers.
PLEASE NOTE: The Click Up is supplied and must be used with the proper CONCEPT SGL HC carabiner with hard-coated wear-proof anodization and ACL system that prevents the possibility of cross loading.

Total Use Safety!
The final, but most fundamental feature, is in the case of incorrect use. Should the device be used incorrectly, CLICK UP continues to allow you to break and lower your partner in complete safety, thanks to the V-shaped braking notches present. This is the most appreciated feature, as it avoids several mistakes that can happen during the use of belay devices while climbing, both indoors or outdoors. It makes CLICK UP the right belay device for rock climbing schools and climbing gyms.

After using many different belay devices, for me Click Up is one of the best. Why? Easy:
2. Even is a manual assisted-braking, but block perfectly the climber with any problem, better than grigri because this stopping is dynamic...
Top3 in belay devices for sportive climbing!
The Click Up was the first belay device I bought. I mostly sport climb on single ropes and my climbing partners are often heavier than me therefore I only considered belay devices that had assisted locking. Unlike the other assisted locking devices the Click Up doesn't require any special technique to keep the device from locking, you pay out slack quickly like you would on a tube style device. The disadvantage is that in case of a fall the device will only lock if you are holding the brake rope (like you're supposed to anyway). Since the device doesn't need to be held open to feed out slack quickly, there is little risk of jamming it open during an unexpected fall.
Lowering the climber is also smooth and it is easy to control the speed of the descent.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars because in the situation where the belayer is knocked out and doesn't happen to fall uncounscious on top of the break rope the Click Up will probably not catch a fall by itself.
Pretty much the ideal belay device, but locks up at times when you need it the least (e.g. belaying the leader, walking backwards). I'm sure that getting used to it just requires practice!
Tested with 9.4 rope and old 10.2 rope. With ropes below 10 mm is great! I have a petzl GG too but click in my opinion is way better.
