Hey guys,
I have been thinking this for a while now, how is the cinch an OK work positioning device? The most common place I see it used is on a climber's lanyard. All literature I have read about the cinch is that it is an assisted belay device. The user guide fairly clearly spells out that when there is a load on the device a brake hand must be placed down rope of the cinch. Is there an exception that I don't know about? Should we allow this to be used for climbing comps?

The reason not to pass it is the manufacturer does not recommend, labeled, or tested as a work positioning tool.

Certified for use with dynamic ropes only. It is both ce and en rated but the en rating is for mountaineering braking devices.
If i can remember rightly, you can use it in comps when used with dynamic ropes....... Basically , i'd be pretty happy to use one if the positioner wasn't invented :)
