The DMM Pivot is a belay and abseil device that can be used with either single, half or twin ropes and can be used to belay in either guide mode or from the waist. It has a unique, patented pivoting “guide mode” connection hole that makes releasing the Pivot when loaded in guide mode a lot easier and with more control than any other belay plate.  

The DMM Pivot takes its name from this pivoting guide mode connection point. This connection point minimises the leverage to release the load and allows the belayer to lower a single second or two seconds, simultaneously or individually, with total control.

It has been designed for ropes from 7.3mm to 11mm but optimised for 8mm to 10.5mm ropes.

Hot forging and machining means the metal is put precisely where it's needed to create a guide plate that weighs just 72g. These manufacturing techniques also allow an internal design that gives confidence-inspiring performance across a wide range of ropes. The Pivot belay device has two friction modes when used for normal belaying from the waist – increased friction using the V-grooves at the front of the belay device and less friction when running over the other side.


  1. This device increases rope control when belaying, lowering a partner and abseiling. It is a fundamental part of a climbers rack.
  2. The pivoting shackle moves the point of leverage when initiating lowering of your second. This vastly reduces the force needed to initiate and control lowering of one or two seconds, making guide mode more user friendly.
  3. Hot forging and CNC technology is used to shape the internal structure of the device to give greater control over a wide range of ropes. This is especially evident when using modern, small-diameter ropes.
  4. In its standard orientation, this device gives confident control over a wide variety of rope diameters. It can also be flipped 180° for smooth abseiling on thick or low stretch ropes.
