I added a couple bearings and a fixed gate (parts I salvaged from my daughters old razor scooter) to help with slack tending and to keep the rope trapped along with a custom built tether for a Rope Wrench to add to the system. The tether is made out of a Black Diamond 10mm dynex runner 30 CM 22KN that I cut, reconfigured and sewn together. I then sleeved it with a 1/2" tent pole splint and added the marine heat shrink tubing for a finished look. Splint was 4 bucks and sling was 6.50 at REI.

Nice work!
One question about this setup Do you still need to put the tail of your rope over the top of the device for controlled decent?

I suspect if he does, it will be difficult to descend unless it is a fairly heavy climber or the plates are worn and it's a smaller diameter climbing line.
