Reverso

Many climbers carry a Reverso as their primary belay device and some use it in self locking mode to belay their partner. If you're going to use the Reverso in self locking mode it's important to know and practice how to flip the device under tension to give slack if your partner falls and is unable to unweight the rope. (This tip assumes you already know how to thread the device correctly.) This technique demonstrated is one method of flipping the device.
