New Route Bailing Device

Run for the hills, every gumby getting a hold of one of these will be hangdogging your project for eternity! Everyone should probably just switch to Trad.

So, while you're hanging off one, non-redundant bolt, you can accidentally unclip it when the wire gets snagged. A perfect death trap.

“you can accidentally unclip it when the wire gets snagged” what??? Where is there a wire? Are you scare of bolts pulling under body weight? You must be petrified every time you sport climb....

I would never use it, but I think it is kind of a cool design.

I would think from the design it wouldn't be able to come unclipped while loaded. Though the gate could be open which isn't good.

And I agree YNP1, pretty creative design.

Bolts have blown on people, but that's not why I mentioned redundancy. I mention redundancy since you're clipped into one bolt with a device that's designed to easily unclip from that one bolt. It's less safe than leaving a biner.

Barely, if any less safe. Like chiyram stated, it would seem it is very unlike, if not impossible for the binder to flip over and unclip while waited. Yes you could accidentally open the gate, But with a little care I am sure that could be avoided.

I like that climbers are coming up with new ideas like this. He is way smarter then me to design that. Even though I would not buy the product. I compliment people for thinking out side the box.
