The Wild Country Variable Controller has a proven record in the climbing world and was one of the first modern devices to come onto the market. The Variable Controller has a slightly unusual design in that it is wedge shaped. This shape enables the device to be used either way round, either as a slick device when a belyer may need to feed rope out quickly or as a device that produces greater friction, such as abseiling. It can be used either as a sport climbing device or as a double rope trad climbing plate. But remember when used as a slick sport climbing device it will be harder to arrest a fall.
These types of belay plates should be used in conjunction with an HMS carabiner.

Excellent for using to set up a belay or rappel. Very lightweight and very simple to use. I now carry as part of my Ski Touring Kit for rappelling steep terrain. Highly recommended.
